    Congratulations LisaB....

    ...for still having a job!

    Perceptive and observant members may have noticed that Lisa might or might not have a job in the new year.

    She has.

    That's great [​IMG]

    Let's hope those without job will find something soon. It will be obviously hard, but let's just assume bottle is still full (in the half).

    Bottle doesn't stay full that long if one is unemployed and depressed.

    Thank you, everyone!

    Yes, my company announced a major layoff today - a 20% reduction in personnel. I survived...yay!

    I've been very worried because my job doesn't fit closely with the core strengths of our lab.

    Whew, dodged a bullet...whew.

    Well it's a sign of the times when people are congratulating each other not for getting a job but for not losing one. Hopefully things will look up by the time I've graduated.

    Sorry, the exact identity is top secret...witness protection program, ya know :tongue2:.

    It's very, very closely tied to the building industry, which is in freefall right now.

    Glad to hear that you've held your position, Lisa. I'm hoping to find something soon, but I'm in no panic about it. While I don't like having W support me, it's a safety net.

    Re: Congratulations LisaB....

    Jobs are nice. I will be finding out if I get to keep mine come March/April. If I am so fortunate as to keep it, I will be working reduced hours and taking a ~20% pay cut (loss of overtime). :grumpy:
