Default New Career?

Wow, day off, watching a movie and I got a call from work, to please login and check my work email.

Ok, I did.

Losing my job. And, to top it off, they don't know when, or what will happen next. But they did tell me to prepare for part-time, prepare to move, and to prepare also for possible severance packages.

Hmmm. No one is exempt. I guess, I would rather give up my office and go back to patting down penor for a living. I was hoping to retire from this joint...

Anyways, boots on the ground and head held high.

Semper Fi to those who care.

Only airport in this state that has positions for which I am qualified for is Detroit. I don't wish to move, and I don't want a 1.5 hour commute.

Sorry for your loss. Time to reassess your path and adjust. What did you want to be when you were a kid?

This sucks for sure, but I will bet you $17 that your next job / career is an improvement. Blessing in disguise. (Not knocking your current job, just the way things work out.)

I wanted to be a telephone repairman and switch operator. Not sure why...

Blessing in disguise though? I agree. Assessing all options. Today at work I will map options out using Excel.

Good luck with your career. Hope you find something better.

I think that is very "unappreciative" to send something such as that in an email.

Sorry to hear of the impending loss. At least they seem to be giving some warning and severance, which is probably a better situation than most that lose their jobs find themselves in.
