Laid-off

After nearly 40 years working in the IT industry I find myself without a job; my job at Lockheed Martin was recently eliminated. I was managing the infrastructure that supports the Lockheed Martin NASA ODIN contracts. Reductions in staff and the resulting reduction in seat counts at the NASA Centers translated to reduced revenue resulting in the need to reduce staff. Interestingly my boss announced his resignation about a week after he notified me that my job was going to be eliminated. Fortunately my layoff wasn’t immediate so I had time to start looking for a job and transition my duties to others. After hearing about my imminent departure one of the managers I supported exclaimed “Who’s going to take care us now?? My last day with Lockheed was September 16.
