Layoff in 2008 (And Four Jobs Later)

September 27, 2014 by Lady Unemployed

I have had 4 jobs since my layoff in 2008 (temp to hire which was a lie, employers knew the date I would be departed at the interview). All were using my “up to date” technology skills in projects that enabled them to cut back in their workforce, creating more people to be unemployed. What I found really interesting is the workers are not high performing at all, very inept skills, poor attitude, slacker behavior pushing work off to others, late and absent continuously, and their still there. It just doesn’t look right, like something is going on in the workforce and I didn’t get the memo.

    It might be the industry/location you’re in although there’s a slacker on every team. And a psychopath. Never forget the psychopath. I have noticed that you’ll find different attitudes and different levels in the ladder. Going from the C Suite back to the trenches (by choice) has made that abundantly clear.
