Today was a horrible day. First thing this morning, my boss called me into his office for a talk. It turns out that he and 3 others have been let go. They will be gone at the end of the month. I was devastated. Not only that, but I worked for him and one of the others that was let go. So far, they don't know if I will be able to keep my job. My name will be put into the "pool" in case another position becomes available. He advised me to get my resume together. He has friends that are executives at other banks. I haven't done a resume in 17 years. I forgot how. I worked on it off and on all day. It needs a lot of work. BFF MAB has a friend that is the HR Director at the bank across the street. I may email my resume to her and have her keep her eyes and ears open. I heard that there is an assistant that may be let go. Maybe they will keep me in mind for that position. There are also 3 executives on our floor that do not have an assistant. Maybe I can be assigned to them. I'm not ready to look for another job. I do a lot of other things besides support my bosses. Some people think I am in charge of operations.

I'm hoping tomorrow will bring more answers.

That is stinky. I am so sorry and there are professional resume services that aren't too expensive that can do your resume.

Well yuck!
Aren't doing resumes the worst? I tried to re-do hubby's, that hadn't been updated in over 18 years, ugh!

I am so, so sorry to hear that. This econmy is scary. Keep your chin up and take it one day at a time. This is just an excercise in updating that resume!

I read your blog pretty regularly, yet I think this may be the first comment I have written. Hang in there. It sounds like you do so much at your job, hopefully you can stay put. About 2 years ago I had to update my resume after being in my previous job for 9 years. It is hard when you are so comfortable in a place.
