    laid off in 2015, found a job a few months later
    laid off end of 2016, unemployed for 8-9 months. kind of my own fault, i turned down quite a few job offers because i didn't want to work in a place i didn't fully enjoy.
    been working since, happy i made the decision i did but company is still going through some org changes

    Contract ended Sept 2017, found an 8 month contract in Feb 2018, which I'm currently on. Looking for something starting Oct 2018.
    I just want my car to look good, my bitch to look better, and my wallet to be fat, not flat...

    Took a buyout in December of 2017 and decided to take a break over the winter.

    It was glorious.

    Went back to work in the same industry but for a different company in May. Things are really busy, I'm part of the Engineering R&D group and the mothership is putting a significant amount of money into us to develop new products (drilling rig tubular handling equipment).

    July 4 I was let go, via email/vmail from contracting firm. One week later my colleague got let go, apparently for letting me in the building. I had on the same day visited another lead on another floor. So according to some of our colleagues they let go the two most productive people and kept a less skilled person, and another that is 'useless AF'. So, big O and G are not done cutting!

    From a city-wide, SMB IT support perspective - its madness out there. I have never been this busy in a 6 month stretch.

    My supervisor and 3 other people on my team got let go over the past week.

    I am heading back to BC at the end of the month, so I am not too worried about it.
