I had no idea how fragile the financial situation of my last company was. They lost a couple of customers and decided to lay me off.
Lucky for me I had been looking for sometime and had a couple of offers within the week. All of the offers and interviews came from networking, mostly from my friends at church.
The offer I accepted came from one of my friends that I interacte with on a fairly regular basis.
My advice at this point is to constantly be networking with friends. because you never know when you are going to need a new job.
I am still working towards my goal of pay for performance consulting. We’ll just have to see what doors open for that.
