This past Tuesday I was “let go” from Magna, the company where I worked for well over a decade. Upper management’s move came out of nowhere, and a number of my now former colleagues did not see the change coming either. It was really hard to experience, it’s not something I’ve ever been through before, and I’ve no interest in experiencing it again.
I’ve got good things to say about my time at Magna. I value my time and work there. I will miss the people. I will especially miss my team.
After Tuesday’s kick in the gut I took Wednesday off to let things settle emotionally. Thursday I kicked off the job hunt.
My plan as of now on prjorgensen.com is to write about the job hunt, what I’m doing for it, and what kinds of things I should have planned for while I was gainfully employed. Looking at this change as an opportunity I will also catch up on my InfoSec and IT reading backlog, so you’ll likely see write-ups. I’ll dig into privacy issues, politics and IT, and other topics as I’m moved to write.
My personal plans and journey you will find over on Harmony Pirate.
