I've been fortunate during this covid19 situation to have a jobby job. Well, that come to an end Friday afternoon at 330pCT on my way to my workout.
Talk about a kick to the nutz. I had no idea this was coming. I was so taken aback with this. Been there almost 6 yrs now.

So i'm back to the job market and have reached out to my contacts. I've got plenty of support and lots of opportunities, i'm in a fortunate position and industry that allows for that. But to make the decision myself is one thing, to be forced is yet another.
At least my firm has offered to give me 6 weeks' compensation and a recruiter to help me find a new job. That was pretty decent.

Anyway trying to keep my head up and look at this as a positive.
Now....to get hired during a pandemic......interviews on the web.....web cam, etc. Everything handled remotely, etc. Will be interesting.

Have a good one. Might be on here more....lol.

@Tuffoldman Thank you sir.....Yes, all was well....had a great last review; just got a raise a few weeks ago....was getting high praises as of late. But hey, its this whole covid thing and affecting business......just finally affecting me.


OK...my schedule for this next week:

Well, I can get to the gym earlier in the day instead of early evening like the others. That is a plus!!!!

Bova, sorry to hear about the employment change. That really sucks. Reach out to your network of contacts. The economy is beginning to bounce back, and you might find this whole thing to be a blessing in disguise!
