Today in my meeting with the owner of the company I work for, to show off my progress on the often mentioned online relocation project, I was informed that a corporate restructuring was going to happen and that since my position was more a "luxury" item to have a full-time technical support and project person on staff and that I was also the newest member of the staff that my position was being eliminated, effective immediately.
However, as various projects are still ongoing and require attention before completion, I will be working for them on a project-by-project basis, at least for a while. I was also told to prepare a flier that would be distributed to every agent and employee in the company that advertises the computer services I do on the side.
There are a few other details that I am not going to get into here, but suffice it to say my termination is solely a business decision and has no reflection on my work to date, which is obviously evidenced in their wishing for me to continue working for them on a contractual basis.
This week has been very trying for me on several levels at no fault of one specific thing, but rather the amalgamation of several issues, both work-related and not. Needless to say, this end to my wonderful week seems only fitting.
I also found out today that an agent who I met at the office, but then subsequently left was discovered dead in her home two days ago. The circumstances are still questionable on whether or not her death was natural or self-inflicted. Either way, during the brief time I got to converse with her in person and since her departure continued little conversations via e-mail, I found her to be a very nice woman. I trust that she is at peace now, because I know life for her was not the easiest.
