I attended my first outplacement session, this afternoon, and I was struck by how lucky I am to be in America. My former company is paying another company to help me find a job somewhere — anywhere else — besides my former employer itself.
Really, it’s amazing.
I was asked about my expectations for the process. I don’t have any expectations except that I don’t want to end up in a job that I hate. I would rather shovel shit for $8.00/hr than work for a company without values.
Oh wait, I’m so full of crap. I wish that I meant that. It’s so unfortunate that I like nice things, including nice accessories.
