Laid Off

Laid Off

I just received a message that I'm gonna be laid off.

I have mixed feelings about it.

At first, I felt sad because the company decided to remove me. Although I'm the only one working on the frontend part of the current project. I guess everything’s replaceable.

At the same time, I felt happy. Currently, I'm in a situation that I already felt bored with my current job. Since I'm working on the same task every sprint. Next, I know this is gonna be a great experience for me and provide another opportunity.

I've a great teammates and I'm gonna miss them all (although we're working remotely and never met before). Shit happens because of covid-19.

Note to myself

I know you can do it. I can’t wait to see what you’re going to do in the future 😄. Keep smiling and enjoy the journey. It's all yours.

What’s next

Luckily, I'm working at Skilled. They have a lot of other positions. I can try my luck to apply for the job again.

There will be 3 options for now

  1. Stay in Skilledd and apply for another remote job.
  2. Find another remote job
  3. Do some fulltime freelance
  4. Find another office job in my area

I choose option 3 accidentally.
