Why? I'm being "tranisitioned out" of my company. My last day is May 15th.
Last Friday, one of five in my group was laid off. Today, myself and another team member were transitioned. He leaves the end of February.
Our boss is no longer a boss, he is back coding.
There are two folks left for the long run - we think. We still haven't heard from them.
We all got suspicious after the Holidays when our boss asked for a "Skills Set/Experience" thing.
In software, it means only one thing. Downsizing and you are hanging on by the skin of your teeth.
With no cavities, you'd think my teeth would be a lot stronger.
Anyway, after watching things like this happen to everyone else for the last 9 years I've been in this software company (and all past lives thereof), it was only a matter of time before it happened to me. Sooner or later your luck runs out.
Guess who's not going to the Casino this weekend.
What to do now. For now, I continue on...start getting myself and my resume in order and see what's out there.
Maybe now I'll lose some weight...have to so I can fit into my "interview" clothes. :)
Was just joking with Honey. I'll call it the "Transition Diet", write a book and make a fortune.
Maybe I'll reinvent myself and switch careers. What was the name of that book AmpuT?
