I am sitting here at work wondering where I fit in. Last Friday they laid off 20% of the staff, two of which are in my department. Both of which will be missed. Then my boss advised that he is putting his notice in as well. So much happened in just one day and it is only my SECOND day back from maternity leave.
So as I sit here waiting for IT to come fix my computer riddled with spam I ask myself, where do I fit in? They already shifted my boss’s responsibilities to two other people just minutes after he resigned. Forget the fact that I have more seniority and experience over one of them. Forget the fact that I am the web dev manager/project manager. Technically I was second in command. I’m sure a news editor would be far better suited to manage a development team then say an actual developer.
So where does that leave me?
My husband asked me this Sunday, “Why are you looking for a new job, you have been talking about starting your own business. Now would be a good time to start.” He also reminded me that I keep going through the same cycle, get a job, the company starts declining, then they have a layoff.
I remember my first; I actually volunteered to leave as we were moving in the next couple of months anyway. Then my second was around 9/11, the company packed up and moved to Indiana or something.
So today is the day I switch my focus…
As I am now an entrepreneur, a MOMPRENEUR
