      Why? It was some random name in Charlotte. Not important enough to give you the name.

      Try for companies in Charlotte. Banks hire contractors all the time

      Well, this happened more than 3 years ago. As my profile says, I work for Microsoft now :)

    Never laid off, never quit.

    This is not a good thing; I now have zero job hunting skills.

      My best advice is keep learning new technology. My dad was at a military company for 30 years. He was trashed during the job hunt after a layoff because he had a narrow skill set

    I used to work in games. Getting laid off is a rite of passage.

      It only sucks the first time. After that, it's a chance to get double paid for a month or two.

    Startup failed. So it was either I was let go or I left on my own. So I left on my own.

    I got laid off and then rehired. Lol. I'm trying to jump ship now, not walk the plank again.
