After not quite a whole year, I was let go from my job last Thursday, via a phone call, while I was having a work-from-home day. It really sucked and is the first time that's happened to me. Now it's time to try and find something again.

My old company may take me back. I was sad to leave the people there, and the work isn't bad at all. We'll see though. Otherwise I will need to take a chance and dive in. Why oh why aren't there more DBA jobs in my area??

Super sorry to hear of that, Steve.

With your career field, though, surely you'll find something soon!

Sorry to hear that. It sucks to be let go over the phone. That's like breaking up with someone via a text. (happened to a friend of mine last week)

As for DBA work, I hear if you move to India, then there's lots of DBAs doing work there!

Good luck, and I'm sure you can find something pretty quickly!

Do you want to move?
Because this might be a good time to move.
Moving is fun!

It is tough to move as we would be separating my son from his grandparents! I'm sure we would never hear the end of it Moving is close to last on the list.

Just send you an e-mail Steve. This just happened to me last Feb, I was able to find something relatively quick in the Rochester area. I could get you hooked up with some contacts I used. Keep your chin up!

Bummer man.

If you have to move, consider coming to Austin, TX. The allergies are terrible, it's miserably hot, and the traffic is insane for such a relatively small city.

BUT. There's so much tech here, there's got to be room for one more DBA. It just might be worth your while.
