Today is my last (official) day here at HRI. Tomorrow should be my last day, but it’s my ‘flex’ day. One of the coolest perks of this job was the schedule. They have what’s called a 9/80 work week. You work 80 hours in 9 days instead of the usual ten. The bonus is that you get every other Friday as a ‘flex’ day. I think more companies should adopt this program. It is incredibly beneficial to get a weekday to do the things most people can only do on weekdays – go to the bank, the post office, whatever.
HRI decided to move all of its development / computer programming work to their home office in Kentucky. I was ‘laid off’ a few months ago and they asked me to stay until now to finish several large projects and help the transition.
I’ll probably visit for a little bit tomorrow – in shorts and a t-shirt – to pack the rest of my books and cubicle. But now I’m unemployed. Thankfully I’m not unemployable, so I’m not really freaking yet. I do need to get a new gig soon, so if anyone out there knows anyone in Los Angeles that’s hiring, drop me a line.
