Quote of the day:
"Doing nothing is very hard to do…you never know when you're finished."
~ Leslie Nielsen, Canadian actor, comedian, and producer.

Ten years ago, I had accepted a job in Loan Servicing at my current employer after a rather harrowing four weeks of unemployment.  I hadn’t run out of money yet, for my previous employer had given me six weeks compensation, but the recession had hit the financial services sector really hard and there were a lot of people out of work.  Each job listing had many applicants, and many of them were folks who had been managers and even senior officers rather than “doers”.   It was a scary time

My pattern of work for a decade after leaving Commercial and Farmers Bank, much to my kids’ dismay,  had been that of an internal knowledge consultant.  There were five different employers during that time for I was hired to come in, set up processes and procedures, and basically the goal was to work myself out of a job by creating an infrastructure in which I was no longer needed.    This was accomplished in about 2 ½ years at Maryland Permanent and The Washington Savings Bank.  I cannot say I accomplished my goal at the other three places -- Millennium I left because the commute from Randallstown to Reston was too much for me, EagleBank I left because I was recruited by TWSB, and MainStreet Lender blindsided me with a RIF [I could argue that shows I had accomplished my goal there too, I guess].    When I started on 06.04.2009, I had no idea that I would be in the same position ten years later; the only place I stayed at longer was C&F!  I’ve actually turned down two offers to go elsewhere, so I’ve pretty much hitched my wagon to this particular star….


 

 The only one of my past employers still in business is EagleBank.  Everyone else has disappeared due to mergers and acquisitions.  25 years of my work history faded into the mists of memory only.
