I am looking for advice or amusing banter. I worked at Oracle for a dozen years in service agreement and subscription sales. I was laid off when most of the department went overseas. I'm in a similar position at a new company but it's not the right place for me. It's more administrative than sales and I miss sales. If/when you were laid off how did you figure out your next steps? Did you change careers, get some certification, go back to school? A lot of my ex colleagues took vacations after the lay off but I like to work and stay busy. I'm at a crossroads. I'm a top performer at what I do but it's a very niche field. Appreciate your thoughts.

- CenturyLink ChuckNoarsStrange they would outsource sales overseas.
If you were a top performer at Oracle, there are other companies with similar services that would be glad to have you im sure. Why not go into sale with one of them?
- Yeah they restructured sent 70% overseas for cheaper labor. And they consolidated everyone else in Colorado in the office. I had been working remotely for a number of years. When I was let go I received a letter from the unemployment office confirming my job went overseas and that I qualified for additional assistance but already had a new job then. I have applied at other companies and interviewed. But haven't found the right place/job yet in part it's timing and in part its location.Feb 20
