Re: My company might be merging
I worked for Medco up until they were bought by Express Scripts several months ago. Now I work for Express Scripts. There have been a lot of executives and managers that lost their jobs so far. I imagine they'll work their way down to everyone else at some point. I've got until the end of next year at MOST before my department gets the squinty eye treatment, and I doubt I'll make the cut. I just don't have enough seniority compared to most in the dept.
I would make sure that your resume is up to date and start looking now. That way you have some time to look without feeling the pressure of not having a job. Any recruiter will tell you that you have a better chance of getting a job if you already have one. I've been keeping my eye out in case the right position comes along, but I'm not going to seriously job hunt until after DD gets here in the next few weeks. I'll start looking more seriously when my maternity leave is coming to an end.
Pharmacist, wife to a nerdy chemist, and proud mama to Leta (12/2006), Derek (4/2009) and Viola (7/2012). Now if only I could figure out a way to quit my job and still pay my student loans all would be well with the world.
