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?
