Welp...Laid Off Today

joy.
the project I've been working on for the past 2 years is winding down, and the client wanted us to reduce head-count. So, myself and three others were let go today.

Damnit!!
Though, my boss told me to update my resume and send it to him. he knows a good friend of him who is Director level that is looking for people. I believe him, and don't think he's blowing smoke up my butt. I've either worked with him/for him or been in contact with him over the course of projects since 2002.

So, we'll see about that. Another young guy at work, texted me and let me know his dad is a manager at his company so I'll get my resume in his hands as well.

I hope I find something soon. My wife took a huge pay-cut last year (around35%) because her job at the time was causing exacerbations with her MS due to stress.

hopefully I won't have to dole out handy's behind the 7-11 for cash.

Microwave connectivity checks. Fiber insertion and fiber testing. Migrating customer traffic off old 3G equipment, and onto the new NV equipment. Worked with local market managers, construction managers, and Sprint RF.

I ran a few markets; Chicago, Pennsylvania (Rochester, Buffalo,) and Wisconsin. Probably coordinated over 2500 sites. once those completed, I worked in tandem with another coordinator to tackle Ohio (Columbus, Cincinatti)

I've had probably 5 years in the past as a Project Controller (running the financial health of projects).

For some reason I always envisioned you as running one of those big dinosaur cranes on the Flintstones. Don't know why.

Yeah, those dinosaur crane jobs are going away.

It seems like your new skill set would be in demand given its specialization. Hopefully that means a short gap between paychecks.

Sounds like you should give Black & Veatch a call. They do a bunch of cellular/telecom stuff out of their offices in Corporate Woods.

Dang. Good stuff. Just curious if it was anything close to Water related stuff. I'm always looking to help people out to get in with my company. Well, people that I actually think could be worth a shit anyways.

I worked there in that building on a Sprint project for 3 years as a Project Controller from 05 to 08; so yeah, they're always into projects like that.

no; because I don't have a 4 year degree, I needed 8 years of experience for the PMP; which I probably now have (8 yrs experience in PM etc).

you're right, that definitely helps.

I worked for a local environmental company as a controller for 3 years; soil studies, water studies etc. But, that lasted 3 years then they didn't get the big contract they were anticipating from the EPA and had to make cuts etc.
