I learned on Thursday that my position at Sprint has been axed. It’s been a great place to work for the last 10 (!) years, but it appears the time for new opportunities has come. I will certainly miss all the wonderful people I worked with, as well as the excitement of working with cutting edge (well, mostly) technology.
I’ll also miss my daily trips along Skyline Drive, with its spectacular views, weather and ever-changing driving conditions. On the other hand, I won’t miss the three hours of daily lost time, the gas expenses and my contribution to global warming.
I still have two weeks of work. After that I’ll have around 6 months of severance pay – thank God! I can begin looking for employment closer to home, as well as learning more about web design, of course. And I hope to some side projects for actual money in the next months, too.
Any suggestions for how to begin a job search in these troubled times?
