Uninterrupted employment

Sometimes the prospects for finding a job can look bleak, owing to claims that we are too old or too inexperienced, perhaps, or that job opportunities are few or nonexistent. I’ve learned, though, that during trying times we still have help at hand.

Years ago, the wise proverb to “trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5) guided me to listen to my spiritual intuition and move across the ocean, where I ended up in a fulfilling, ever-expanding role at a not-for-profit organization. I stayed at this organization for more than twenty years. 

When I was less than seven years from retirement, it was disconcerting, to say the least, to hear discussions at the office about a restructuring involving the delocalization of over a hundred roles, including my team of eleven. As over two thirds of the headquarters roles were being moved to other countries, there was a lot of anger and fear in the office atmosphere.
