Today I was happy to be able to start a new job assignment in a different division where I work. This meant relocating my office temporarily to another building (99% of it stayed behind). Since December work has either been really slow or the jobs I have been assigned were already behind schedule. About a month ago 399 people volunteered to separate from our company due to the impact of the government budget sequestration. Needless to say this has caused a lot of uncertainty, anxiety and stress. My hope is that this new 2-3 month assignment can become a long term opportunity.
