Not sure hows that's related -- can't read article anyway.
I got ambushed a year ago, next week.
Very sorry to hear this. It's an awful feeling. I hope that your music and other good things in your life help get you through this tough time.
That is not the type of company that I would want a career with anyway .
Land on your feet running and don't look back .
What's happened to the idea of career anyway? Does anyone expect to be with their current employer in five years?
I was with my previous employer for over twenty years.
That loyalty earned me a corporate knife in the back.
My manager's voice trembled nervously as she fired me
I told her "good luck"
Yes. Not to sound too trite, but when one door closes, another one opens. Time to capitalize. Have patience. Best of luck to you, and keep us posted.
Career is not inside one company anymore, but that thing you do while chaining together a bunch of jobs and companies during your working years. Companies don't last ... Example is of the original Dow Industrial companies from the early 1900s there is only GE left in the 2000s.
Take care and good luck.
I am so worried for people who lost their jobs. I hope this does not continue. Please [your god here], don't let this keep happening to people who have worked hard and honorably their entire lives
I've had dealings with "Human Remains". Got made redundant twice from the same company. First time back in 1982 I hadn't been there long enough to accrue any benefits but got $300 ex-gratia. A couple months later got a call to go back to cover for someone on holiday and stayed for next 23 years. Took redundancy/early retirement package 8 years ago with a pile of loot and returned to Australia and it was enough to set up on 6 acre 7 bedroom rural property in paradise with space for more guitars than I ever expected.
I was thinking when your boss lets you go, it's just that much easier for his boss to let HIM/HER go.
+ 100 , been there done that.
I feel your pain brother. Mine I saw coming, but it still hurts when it happens. As others have said: take care of those projects you didn't have time for previously, and don't get discouraged if the process takes longer than you thought. Things are kinda weird right now.
Oh so true! I always find it amusing when you get hired to a company and they boast having an open door policy and HR is here to help you. That is the first of many lies your employer will try and feed you. At the end of the day they get their paychecks from the company, not from the people they are there to 'help'.
Oh, your are at least eligible for unemployment, right? Takes some pressure off..........
The problem (it's a good problem to have, I suppose) is that I also work a part-time job which pays ok, but it makes me ineligible for unemployment. You can still work while on unemployment, but they reduce your benefits. What I make part-time is over the limit.
One of my ex employers HR person resigned because firing people was not what she got into HR for.
There is a lot of us out there to whom it happened.
Hopefully you can turn this into an opportunity, good luck
And if the door doesn't open break the window and climb through.
It may feel like it's the end of the world - it's not. As many have already said, it can lead to something better. I've been laid off three times and each time it turned out to be for the best. You'll be fine.
Well, I do... but if I'm not with them in 5 years, they'll be wishing I was- instead of being a competitor.
Good luck, Op!
