Coping with a possible job loss
Friday, September 02, 2011
Got a phone call Wednesday that the property I manage (apartments) is changing management. The company I have worked for five years has no other positions open.... I may be out of a job October 1st.
On one hand I am devastated. I spent three years taking the property from a dump and making it the best I can. I had 16 empty units when I started (out of 104) and now there are two (and those will be quick to rent).
On the other hand could this be an opportunity to change careers? I have been pretty burned out lately with this job/career but the problem is THERE IS NOTHING OUT THERE! I am not qualified for anything. I graduated from college 15 years ago, had my children and have been in property management for 10 years!
Riding this roller coaster is not fun. I will have to really focus so I don't let myself get lost. That girl on the left side of my profile picture is NEVER coming back. She is gone. Even if I have to quit jazzercise (for the $) I will just start running outside, biking, etc.
So sparkies, pray for me that I either get to keep my job with the new management or find a position before mine ends. And all this stress before a long "holiday" weekend....
