My company decided to drop a bomb on me last Friday


I am no longer employed and 90% of our IT organization has been outsourced


Time to start looking again....


Geez, what a bunch of Morons this company has for management.

Our engineering company is walking a tight rope at the moment. Luckily we are still balancing but for how much longer who knows. It's a scary thought and I don't envy your situation. Best of luck job hunting

I'm feeling your pain. I have found myself in the same situation twice in the last 18 months. If I can suggest one thing, stay positive. It'll be hard to do at times, but staying positive really helps.

I had a similar experience last year, I agree keep positive and don't dwell on the past, if possible consider the good things that came from the last employer and focus on them.

I know it can be hard but look at it as another opportunity.

Good luck and keep your chin up

I lost my position almost 3 months ago and it was looking absolutely horrible. I stepped into something great a month ago and was very lucky and you guys will be also. I was ready to sell the house, cars, etc. It's very tough out there, but there are good positions for good people. Good luck!!
