I found out a couple of days ago that the company where I’ve worked for the past two and a half years is folding. Well, sort of: really, it’s mostly being absorbed by another company. However, that company does not need a Web developer. This means that come the first of the year, I’ll be out of a job. Thankfully, I think most of my coworkers are safe.
So, I’ve sent out some applications locally, but there aren’t a lot of openings in my field. I’ve also considered going the consulting route; I could probably pick up a client or two who used to use my company’s development services, and do projects for them on a contract basis. If I could find another client or two, I could be in decent shape.
I’ve also considered reinventing myself. I could be a clown makeup artist, a jukebox repairman, or maybe even a garbage man. Any suggestions out there?
Seriously, if anyone out there knows someone who needs a Web developer, either in the Wilkes-Barre, PA area, or in a telecommuting scenario, let me know!
