Unemployed in the Time of Covid

It's been a real weird time... I was laid off in November because the company I left City Government for lost a major client and had to lay off most of their VDC staff. VDC is Virtual Design for Construction. I basically worked on laying out electrical systems in a 3D layout of various buildings, most of which were server farms. I signed NDA's so I can't list out the names but they were big boys.

I figured I would go a few weeks and find work...

9 and a half months later... covid proved me wrong. I had multiple interviews setup in January that all dissolved when covid reared its ugly head. Then things start calming down in June and I started to get more interviews setup... they all dissolved again.

I did have three promising interviews... two ended up going with someone else and one told me I was overqualified.

So here I sit... on a stack of skills... waiting.

It's frustrating, but it is what it is...

Born in a city park and raised by squirrels, Brian quickly mastered the mystic art Squirreljitsu. Eventually his travels took him completely across the park where he discovered a completely new world full of cars, and cheeseburgers. Now, decades later... He blogs, draws, does photography, and more. His life is a constant struggle between the inner squirrel... and people who ignore leash laws in the park. Fucking keep those dogs on leashes or take them to the damn dog park you assholes! Some of us are here to feed the fucking squirrels!
