I got laid off at the beginning of November. It was a large layoff, hitting 10% of the company, but it hit about 50% of the group I was in. It seems that the younger software engineers from my group found other jobs pretty quickly, but the ones around my age all seem to have take a good deal longer. :shock:

Last Thursday, I got two offers. Both looked very good, so it went from famine to feast. It was quite a weekend, having to weigh, compare, discuss, contemplate, consider, ponder and evaluate the two offers. My wife and I were able to coalesce the discussion into clarity by Sunday, and yesterday morning, I accepted one of the two offers.

I'm really excited about this new job. I have to say, it feels really good to be going back to work. I believe that a man is genetically programmed to be responsible for and provide for his family. The money hadn't quite run out yet, but it was getting low, so this development is a big relief.

This will involve a relocation to Cache Valley, so I'll be busy with a new job and with moving.

I'm a happy man today... :D

Congrats! I find being out of work to be more stressful than having a job (regardless of how much I may complain ;)

Good to hear your back to the old grind. These days a lay-off can hit anybody, in any company. Historians will name this era the time of no security (that's why all law abiding citizens needs to get a CWP).
Just keep getting back up, and you'll be OK.

Hey! Hey! Be safe out there!
