You might already know that a large restructuring took effect today at my employer. It’s always a shame to see talent, skill, and centuries of experience leave their empty cubicle with one to four boxes of their belongings.
I wasn’t in this round (which makes 0-3 for me). But plenty of colleagues that I worked with were. It was sad to see them already packing their desks in a form of box. Many expected it, thanks to the rumor-mill tech gossip blogs, but some were still surprised.
I really wish you were here still with us. Stand strong and keep your head up. There’s plenty of opportunity that awaits you in the D.C. area. In your pursuit for a new paycheck, check out EMurse. You might like it — very Web 2.0, free, and helpful for formatting your resume on the fly.
Lastly, if you read this — keep in touch. Bother me with random IMs when you’re bored, I’ll chat.
