I went in to work yesterday morning to find out the sad news that the contract I had been hired to work on had been canceled last week. The company tried to find work for me, but was unable to do so. I am now another casualty of the struggling economy. It’s a shame, but I understand that the “last in first out” principle of employment, and I understand the business need.
The company was generous in the severance offered, and there is no malice towards them for what happened. As of today, I’m officially back on the open job market, and I’m looking for work as a PHP developer.
I’d prefer to stay in DC, but I’m willing to telecommute and travel occasionally for business. For those interested, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of my resume, and you may read my current online resume.
Working for Applied Security was a wonderful opportunity, and I’m sad to see it end, especially so quickly after starting. But I’ve enjoyed my time there, and I look forward to the new adventures that lie ahead.
