Goodbye Engineering!!!!!!!

Post by gorlg on Mon Oct 29, 2012 4:01 pm

After 4 acquisitions/closures, it finally sunk in: I gave you my life, I loved you more than I loved myself.

I apologize from not realizing this sooner because now we both lose.

Everybody - please, please consider whether your dilemma is like mine. Have yourself a learning experience!!!!!!!!

Try to not make my mistake.

Process engineers are in high demand, especially in the Texas area. Are you restricted by relocation or certs?

Don't give up.

I know exactly what you are saying...worked for a company for 20 years, and litterally gave them my life....worked 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, sometimes, and still took work home to complete at night. During my tenure there, our business tripled! I remember walking out of the office at 8:00 on a Friday night, and noticing that my car was the only one in the parking lot...and cried my eyes out on the way home. That's when I realized I was a workaholic...and changed my tune real quick the following Monday. And what did it get me...company closure, by a big fat corporation we call Mobile. (And to think I still get my gas there). Never again, will I give my life over to anyother employer!

Take your experience and move forward with it... the expression "while looking back you can never progress forward" applies here.

It's a changing world. Change with it "real time" and in so doing you really can't afford to pivot on the past, not even a day ago!

It does no good.

I wonder if they are hiring engineers overseas?

Sorry your career didn't work out. I gave years to a failed career in my case, which died due to health...but part time jobs and economic layoffs didn't help either.
