Just an hour ago, I was called in to a meeting at work. That meeting consisted of three people: Myself, my supervisor, and a woman from HR. You can only guess where things went from there. I was laid off, not for any particular reason as to my own performance, but because the company is simply eliminating overhead positions--including mine. Thankfully (?), they are giving me until Jan. 1st to find a new job before I have to leave, so four weeks instead of two, which is nice. So if things are quiet on the blog for the next months, it's became I'm looking for work. I wonder about my chances in this economy, but I think I know what kinds of jobs to avoid, and what to veer towards. I'll probably apply for unemployment as a safeguard, and I might have to get COBRA if I haven't found something by the new year.
They did give me today off, with pay, so I can update my resume.
Wish me luck!
