Opportunities…

Ok, layoffs are a tough and stressful time. But it makes it all the more stressful for the people BEING laid off when the people that AREN’T can’t tell them anything at all. My manager visited me today, *finally* but still couldn’t tell me anything. Instead he hands me a bunch of job postings that I’ve already looked up on CSC’s web site and tells me (what I already know) that I’m not really qualified for any of them, but to call the managers up and ask about them anyway and see if there’s maybe a way they can move around money and tasks to give me something. So now I need pity and special assistance to get a job within my own company. I’m trying to keep rational and calm about this and remember that I still have another week to decide what to do, but at this point, I have to wonder if I wouldn’t be better off without this place and instead looking for new opportunities.

My roommate’s plight scares me a little bit, since he’s been off work for 2 months with no real leads, but I’m also a little sure that he doesn’t want to be back at work just yet. It would just drive me nuts to sit around with nothing. Not even the pursuit of a hobby or something.
