Today before work, I received an email from an old boss of mine. He basically told me he has a high paying job opening and he wants me to fill it. It got me thinking, because I enjoyed working for him, and the salary range he mentioned was higher than what I make now. I closed the email and figured I’d call him after work. But at 2PM this afternoon my employer’s HR manager walked into my office out of left field and informed me that due to the sudden loss of one of our primary contracts, they are being forced to lay off 40% of our staff, my position included. I immediately picked up the phone and called my old boss. He was really happy to hear from me. I told him, “I want the job.” He said, “It’s yours! Can you start next week? You can swing by my office today and fill out the paperwork.” So I did. MMT
