9.5 years at my company and today I was laid off. Business hasn't been great lately and there have been layoffs at my company and today I was impacted by that. 9 1/2 years that it feels like meant nothing. I don't guess it's all bad. I do have about 6 weeks of severance, so we'll see how it goes. They refer you to a placement company. I was holding up ok until coworkers (former?!) came by to offer their sympathies that I began to break down.
I have 10 days to find a job within the company or be off payroll and a month's pay after that. I know I need to hit the ground running, but today I'm going to mourn. Tomorrow will be another day.
