Whole lotta labia.
[how ya feelin'? |rejectedrejected]

ATTN: Baltimore and DC Area Girlies:

Um.. I just lost my job. Effective Jan. 1 I'll be out on the street. It's not a performance thing, it's just a "buy new company, end up with duplicate employees" thing. So if any of you knows of any openings at your place, a nearby place, whatever, I'd appreciate any help you can offer.

I've been doing client relationship management and project management/program managment stuff for this job for 2 years and for my last job for almost 6 years. I get glowing reviews from bosses and despite my penchant for writing gay porn while at work I can actually be a really hard-working employee. Dude, I can. Dude. Stop laughing.

Dude.

Y'all ain't right. :)

I have a lead on a client services job that would be help-desk stuff working early shift for a company I love and people I adore but if there's something that wouldn't involve me having to be in Laurel at 7am I'd prefer that.

My love to you all, I have to go to Ecuador now.

Fuckers.

Holy fuck.

I'll be looking, darling. Mostly around Baltimore, yes? Otherwise the commute will destroy you. I'm furious for you. Furious. And I'll set Collette on it too, definitely. She's really good at finding jobs, she's just not at work today so she won't see this till tomorrow.

This sounds like a lovely time for you to lose a metric buttload of equipment in Ecuador and fuck right off to the bar. But that's just my opinion.

Thank you gorgeous, I appreciate it. At least they didn't do it while I was on vacation like the last company. :)

I'd have you go for my job when I leave here *hopefully* in January...but I WOULD NOT put this place upon any of *my* friends. That, and you are worth so much more than this place. However, if I hear of anything from anyone else anywhere else in my comings and goings, I'll let you know. Sorry I can't be more help. *hugs you close* :(

Hugs and good wishes are worth the world right now. :) That and the promise of tea in December.

Hang in there.. when do you hear about your midterms?

Any company that won't be reorganizing in the next thirty years. ;)

I do project management stuff. Everything from organizing conferences to coordinating big client programs to the implementation and build-out of big webserver clusters. If you hear anything I'd love it if you could pass it my way. If not, thank you for even looking, I really appreciate it! I have the best flist ever. :)

Oh, honey! I'm so sorry! At least you know it's nothing you did. Not that it makes things better...

I LURRRRRRVE YOUUUUUUUUUUU!

Chocolate, kisses, booze, and job opportunities. I send them your way mentally.

I loved my friend Mike's reaction "Of course it wasn't performance based.. when it's performance based they call it a firing and you don't get a nifty package." Then we giggled about the idea of a "nifty package" ;)

THank you for the good thoughts baby, and I'm sorry to hear about the upheaval at your place.

Oh Melly! I'm so sorry. I wish I lived close enough to help in the search, but since I really don't, I'll just send all the "get a great job" mojo that I have around here, which is a whole big lot.

...or I could look for jobs here in C'ville for you. ... yeah, ok, just checkin'.

I can have my Dad check around the SSA offices in Woodlawn if that would help; he's hooked people I knew up with jobs before.

Fer serious? Cuz that would rock. And then I would owe you favors.... sexy favors. ;)

Yeah, I'd love that.. no pressure, but if there's something out there I'd love to hear about it. :)

Oh, Mellies!

IM me when you get there so I know you're safe!

Oh Mel, I'm so fucking pissed for you right now. It's not right, baby. It's just not. You let me know if you need anything. Ok? I mean it. *resolve face*

Oh Tricky. I left my passport on the plane in from Baltimore to Miami and it turned around and went to Minneapolis and now I'm in Miami because my passport won't be back until tomorrow and ... and.. and.. I miss you.

*loves*

I know.. but at least I get one or two more trips out of it. And I'm keeping my frequent flyer miles. And I'm padding my last expense report. ;)

THanks for the good wishes, I'm luckier than I ever knew. :)

Oh, my. I wish I could help you! I'm the WORST job-hunter, which partly explains why I'm in a job at which I am, as my mother said yesterday, 'bored out of [my] skull'.

Something better will come along. I promise.

I do have plenty of time.. and I'm in much better shape finacially and mentally than I was when the WorldCom hammer fell on me so.. I'm basking in the good wishes and using them to power my job search. :)

*hugs*

Thank you!
