    Do you know the fate of your employment?

    Found out Friday I was not being made redundant. Alot of other people are though. Maybe more than 2000.

    So at least for about 6-9 months im in a job.

    i switched jobs - work in office services for a law firm - back in november 08 to a firm i had worked for from sept 07 to may 08. they called and said we have a position available. obviously i had reasons for leaving in the first place, which were solved, meaning a vacancy was available. i was unsure whether to take the job back as when i was there previously, people we leaving left right and centre, the firm appeared to be shrinking so i decided to move on. now i am back i was slightly concerned at first, but when i sat down to chat with my now boss, he said, as long as america keep an office in london - which is their ultimate aim, then there will always be the need for 2 people in office services, you and me! he then went on to say that no job is ever gauranteed though, which is in all honesty the truth!

    I've had a switch of fortunes. From being on the line to being as secure as it can be - everyone else has been laid off or has handed in their notice leaving me as the only person who can do the job!
