The company I work for at the moment has decided to make the role I (and another) were doing redundant. Dang not unexpected but I on the quiet could see this coming and had lined up some interviews, one which sounded hopeful after the telephone interigation wanted to see me for a face to face put all interviews on hold. I have another telephone today. I was after some idea, is there a chance I could a solid offer purely from phone / Skype contact?
Well I had the first interview / grilling with my Bosses Boss and told my role was being made redundant. Last time this happened I left in the Pub so long it was not funny, I made a promise to myself it wasn't going to happen again. Then Convid-19 happened and put a stop to the interview process (had a couple of good leads!) and then the axe gets dropped whilst in the midst of Convid-19
I saw a talk by Martin Lewis the money guy on TV the other day and he has said that if a company tries to make you redundant or just tries to get rid of you over this virus just ask them to put you on furlough as it won't cost them anything and you will have a chance to find (or try to) something without worrying too much about money.
I should imagine there are a number of companies' share prices "down the pan" at present, but furlough is nothing to do with share price, it's all paid by the government, it wouldn't cost your employer a penny!
And if they won't furlough you then you are really better off out of it, the trouble is however if you are out of a job you'll struggle to find a new one whilst all of this mess is going on unless you get one in a "critical" sector or whatever they are calling it.
My family has relocated to our relatively remote cottage for the duration (my wife has an auto-immune disease and being away is a good thing).
So the daughter is doing her university courses, the wife is working online, I am reading CP and bang - the internet goes down. I get a text from a neighbour asking if mine is down too - so it appears to be the whole area. Much panic ensues as if life is ending...
It appears we really do need the machine that goes 'ping'...
If you can't laugh at yourself - ask me and I will do it for you.
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
