The Continuing Job Saga

Here's a brief update on where things stand with my job.

  • I held out for and got my years of service carried over to "The Company". Yeah!
  • I started with "The Company" on June 1st and received my first pay check (dated tomorrow) today. Yeah!!
  • I attended two meetings today where I found out that there were coming layoffs within the division of "The Company" that I am now a part of and that those will be happening in July. Boo!
  • I also find out that my team was one of a handful of teams selected to be in the first round of teams reviewed to have up to 35% of their positions replaced by off-shore resources. Boo!!
So, the outlook is very muddy. The next few months should be very interesting.

Saga seems like a good word to use for this! YUCK! Does the "drama" ever end?

Praying for you and the fam while all of this is being ironed out. We know that God will provide for you all.

Ugh! Wow - just when you think everything's in place, along comes another curve ball. We've definitely been where you are, and we'll definitely be praying for you and Stephanie while you're in this uncertainty!

Muddy sounds about right! So thankful our God, the only God, knows the future! We'll keep praying!

Glad that I chose today to check in on your blog to see what has been happening! Things have definitely changed since we last talked. Very stressful. Hope you all won't need the house we don't yet have soon. We are always supporting you in prayer. "All things work together for good . . "

Love, Mom

Hey, not to be too unsubtle or anything, but Austin has one of the best job markets in the country... (hint, hint).
