Reality Check/Redundancy?

Well yesterday was reality check day. It appears that the company I work for is about to sell out to another company. Of course at the moment all is hush hush and denials yet the proof is there and has been overheard and seen.

What then comes to mind in circumstances like this is to whether our jobs will be safe - or if they are, for how long.

I've been through the whole scenario a couple of times in my working life and contrary to how secretive they have been the telltale signs have been there so it comes to no surprise to me.

But and the big but on my part is - do they really want to employ a 55 (nearly 56) year old woman and if they don't then where the hell do you start looking for work when you are competing against all the other unemployed young people during this credit crisis.

Mmm, time to dust off the old CV and get updating - I used to be a girl guide so am used to "being prepared".

Best of luck. I hope it doesn't come to it but at least being ready is a good thing.

I was only ever once under treat of redundancy which fortunately didn't happen. It isn't nice.
