well EMC ... thats pretty close to IBM.

Congrats GG,
my 2 cents, don't get stuck in the rud there GG, use it as a springboard back into the working world, unless you get a really good deal over there.

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.

Thank you Vel, BoT, Plug, and Meats for the support. I appreciate it.

Its been a long 5 months of searching.... seems like an eternity... cant imagine folks that have been unemployed for 3+ yrs.... 5 months is too long for me..

BoT - Dont worry about me getting into a rut.... believe me, I have a sense of renew incentives to better myself and ones around me with my to be new employer. With my skills and experiences that I have developed over the years, I will make good use for my new employer. I have a couple of projects on my list already that I would like to do and I am not even officially started yet... lol

In regards to selling stuff...... lol... In the 5 months of my unemployment, I have sold 5 items on craiglist and taking the funds and putting it into the survival cookie jar... I wanted to go and hire myself out as an escort service for lonely middle aged wives but the miss's wouldnt have any of that... tried to tell her I could rake in gobs of dollars for the service and if I give them extra special attention, I will rake in the tips.... man the possibilities....

So this career transistion is not quite complete until the fat lady sings...

Hey G.G.,

Glad to hear about your good news.

It is really sad that a company as big and accomplishing as HP would do that.
25 years is really a lot to give...how very appreciative of HP to do that to you.

All these lies about the value of the human resources goes to the garbage bin
when they start seeing the numbers.

Companies like these are willing to pay a young CEO loads of money, but they are not willing
to give a fraction of that to an invaluable member of their company.

I am working for a company and I have seen two scenarios that gave a me a clear picture
of how my future in the company is going to be.

I have seen one of the senior employees (20+ years), a manager, cometo a small conflict with the management.
He handed over his resignation letter. The letter was approved without hesitation.
Not even a thank you letter was given to that person. It is was very sad.
It is especially sad when you get to know that the conflict was about lunch hours.

I, also, got to see a manager who worked for 2 or 3 years get a nice farewell party.
A party with Cakes, drinks, plaques and all that.

After that, I knew I should keep my loyalty to myself. Take the best of opportunities
and move on. Hardly any future in a company like this.

By the way, I was interviewed by HP before I got my current job.
I wonder how my career would be if I signed with them.

Anyways, glad you're back on your feet.
Wish you the best on you new job. :)

Zero,

Thank you for the support. It has been a long 5 months of searching... I gave myself 1yr to look for a job that was equivalent or better to the job I had left at HP... then after a 1yr it would be survival job time.... But I am glad that I didnt get to that point. I tell ya.... with the primary bread winner of my house hold where the family unit depends on me for our well being.... landing this job has sure lifted the heavy burden off my shoulders... But I am looking forward to my next career. Actually very excited about it as my start date gets closer. (just as long as all my stuff checks out to their satisfaction that is...lol ).

Tomorrow will be my start of the third week at my new job..... I am officially "Employed". Hopefully this will be my last job that will pull me all the way through retirement... just need a good couple of decades...

Thank you all for all your well wishes and support.

Seems like HP and EMC have a history of stealing each other's people. Wait 'til HP buys EMC, then you're working for HP again. ;)

Oh god I hope that never happens..... I would be right back in the same situation that I was forced into....

It is funny that I show up at customer's data centers and the customer are surprise what I am doing there (right now I am doing ride alongs) and wondering if I was there for their HP equipment..... then they get a big surprise that I am there under the EMC banner... Then I go into the whole big story...

After being with HP for 25.5yrs in my area.... I have been through alot of different data centers.... Now that I am under the EMC banner..... most, if not all the sites that I will be visiting, I will have been there before at some point... lol..

This was inspiring! I'm going out Monday and apply for a job as a janitor at EA! I'll get some extra cash and be a babe magnet again! "...well ya baby i work for EA as a game designer. Oh, well I can't say what games. I have a confidentiality agreement. The programmers design em, and I look for messy mistakes and clean up afterwards."

BoT,

Several of my colleages from my previous employers asks me, so far what is the best part about my new job..........


Right now..... there are two things about my new job that I can say that stands out and I am very pleased with....

1. getting back on the payroll

2. getting that official medical card from the health insurance company...

Everything else will fall into place...
