Looking to Make a Good Living

In February, I was hired as a temp-to-perm contract System Administrator at a really amazing company called NetApp.  It was a great job and I loved it.  Last week, they announced a layoff of 10% of their workforce and the first to go were the contract employees.

I know I will find a new place to work soon enough.  That’s just an inconvenience.

I worry though about the team I left.  It was a small team and we worked well together.  With the contractors gone, they are short staffed.  I miss them and I hope they are able to keep up with the workload.  Should their budget allow for it, I’d love to return there and rejoin the team.

Sadly though, I cannot wait and hope.  I need to keep moving and as a result, I’m now back to looking for new employment.

Today would be a great day to bring me on to your company’s team.  Will you give me a chance to make your computer systems sing?
