Hello bees. Sad day for me yesterday. 13 of the staff at the museum I work at were laid off as part of larger government layoffs (1200 overall). My position was one of the ones elimiated. I worked there a few years ago and waited for my opportunity to get back there. It came last year when the person in the job I’d wanted since I was a child finally retired. I felt so lucky to get the position! Felt like I won the lottery with a permanant position with awesome benefits. Fast forward a year later and I’m just gutted.
I’m in my mid-30s and I really don’t want to move. But I’m so tired of starts and stops in my career. I get my foot in somewhere only to get it pushed out again. And everyone always wants to keep me. Seems like I have lousy timing. And my SO was laid off 2 months ago from his job. He doesn’t want to move either. Both of us having aging parents we want to be close to.
Having a frustrating and sad week 🙁
