The Reality of Being Outsourced

No one ever counts on being outsourced. Think about it. When you are hired by an employer there is a sense of relief and accomplishment. The thought of losing your position is far, far away. Thoughts mostly focus on performing well, making good impressions and meeting your new employer’s expectations. Eventually, however, as enough time goes by the realization begins to set in that your position is not as permanent as you originally thought. In fact, even for reasons outside your control and that have nothing to do¬†with your performance¬†you may be laid off and you will be thrust into the cold, harsh world of unemployment.

If you are an IT tech and your position has been outsourced to a managed IT services Austin, you have some decisions to make. The first decision you must make is how will you make up the income stream you have just lost. Perhaps if you are lucky you have another job lined up. Perhaps you have savings that you can live off of for a couple of months whilst you regroup and send out your resume. Perhaps you have no idea what to do and you have to start off again at square one.

Eventually you will find yourself in a new position. It seems as if it will never happen while you are in the throws of unemployment.

You must be making contacts and letting potential employers that you are available.
