Well, my manager says he's unable to renew my contract at the end of the year, so I'll be out of work come January 1st.
Kind of sucks. Between the baby and the condo we recently bought, we're stretched pretty thin covering our expenses. I figure we have enough $ to last a little longer than 2 (maybe 3) months before things get really hard. We might even need to move or dip into our retirement money. :-(
I'm still employed by a contracting company and they're trying to find another position for me. I'm also trying to find someone willing to hire me through a consulting agency.
So everyone please send some mojo my way ok?

What do you DO?

Sucks he couldn't give you a little more warning? Is a mere month advance to be expected?
Anyway, water under the bridge I suppose. I am sending all available mojo your way, to be sure.

(hopefully it won't come to the ramen...)

@BigDaddy: Technically, I'm a Web Developer and Webmaster for IBM. My job is (was) pretty broad though. Between instructing dev teams, dealing with clients, enforcing internal standards, etc.
@Sutekh: He only *had* to give me 2 weeks. Giving more was a kindness.
@G Beee & Maulaxe: naaa, I just read too much wilwheaton.net
@Gun'sLackey: :-). Thanks!

In the past, IBM meant a live time employment but sadly that's no longer true...

What IBM site are you at? I know I could pull some strings with BCRS in Boulder.
I'm at the TJWatson Research Center in Hawthorne NY. Bit of a commute to Boulder :-) but sure, I'm interested in hearing about any leads.
Probably best to use email (see my profile for the address).
