Sorry if I came across a bit angrily yesterday. I hate it when my immediate future is tossed up for grabs with no idea of how it may come down.
Yet my prediction about today's restructuring pow-wow was pretty accurate. Out of six total writers, four positions may be applied for beginning tomorrow, including one that is the exact same job I have been doing for nearly a year (and which no one else is doing; I'm a team of one).
That's the upside.
The downside is that among the current slate of writers, I'm the lowest on the totem pole in terms of in-house experience. Thus, part of me is thinking "last in, first out."
However, I will be employed until the first week of May, which is better than being laid off today, so I get a little breathing room. But ultimately, I give myself a 50-50 shot at still being employed 30 days from now.
I hate situations like these.
