Elie's Expositions

A bereaved father blogging for catharsis... and for distraction. Accordingly, you'll see a diverse set of topics and posts here, from the affecting to the analytical to the absurd. Something for everyone, but all, at the core, meeting a personal need.

Downsized And Heading Back Up

Wanted to let my blog friends know that I've been laid off from my job, effective this past Friday - after 24 years at the same company! Loyalty and experience count for absolutely nothing in today's corporate world - or likely, count against you.

I have much more to say about this, but for the immediate future things will be a bit crazy and disorganized here on Elie's Expositions as they are in Elie's larger life. I know I'm late for this week's Musical Monday, which may end up becoming next week's Musical Monday. But on the bright side, I'll likely have more time - and hopefully more inclination - to get back into more regular blogging again. Meanwhile, happy Sukkos! May the holiday continue to bring with it pleasant weather... and pleasanter tidings.

"Loyalty and experience count for absolutely nothing in today's corporate world - or likely, count against you." That's exactly what I've told our son: Given the current market, you should probably hold a job for no less than 3 years, so that you acquire a good employment record, but no more than 10 years, lest you price yourself out of the market, and don't be surprised if you have to change careers several times over the course of your working years, lest you become so good at what you do that no one can afford to hire you.

I'm so sorry to hear about your lay-off. Major bummer. :( Best of luck with the job hunt.

Elie, I am so sorry--and can relate! My husband was laid off last April, has sent out over one hundred resumes. He is still under consideration for a few jobs (maybe 3 or 4) with a complicated hiring process, but has been rejected (with over 30 years experience and expertise in his field)from everything else.
Of course there's no loyalty...
What are you planning to do?
