I was let go from my job today after nearly six years with the company, and just before Christmas. I spent the day applying for unemployment, registering for Medicaid and affiliated medical programs for the new year to cover my routine medications and appointments, updated my static resume and LinkedIn and Indeed profiles, contacted all of my doctors to see which providers they'll accept, and researched and contacted a free government-based career counseling center for my city.

It's quite a challenge finding a new career at age 41. I feel ill-equipped to work but I networked with a few CEOs I know locally and they each agreed that I'm selling myself short and downplaying my skill set. They were confident I could easily start any of several of my own companies or a consulting firm based on my experience, but I need something more stable than that.

There are hundreds of thousands of job listings nationally for WFH careers. The challenge is identifying the keywords which will yield a satisfying new venture. Perhaps this is for the best. The stress at my former job was insurmountable. Maybe the next job that awaits me will be measurably more rewarding.

Sorry to hear that, man. And at Christmas too. Think they might have waited till the new year. Hope you got a decent redundancy package at least. Best of luck in exploring new horizons. And an early Happy Christmas to you, if that's not a contradiction in terms now.

My partner is going on a date with a lady who has a dog named Special Agent Dale Cooper.

Somehow me and Special Agent Mulder are equally threatened and intrigued.

then why do you feel threatened?


If it makes you feel any better, the dog doesn't know his name is "Special Agent Dale Cooper", he thinks his/her name is "Spe-cial"
