It looks like the firm I'm with hasn't won a “real” project in many months, therefore presenting the inevitable, less work to go around. It's hard for a big firm to win projects when others are bidding cents on the dollar, but as the saying goes, "you get what you pay for"; at least we kept them honest by being their Peer Review. As the other saying goes, "Life is like a Bowl of Chilli, what you do now, may Burn your A$$ later", lol. The only ones not affected were the “Designers”. Maybe I should go back into that line of work? You know it’s bad when the one’s that are left are the “cream of the crop” & they have to be let go.
So all this week I did lots of networking besides send out my resume. Just by chance a call to a fellow colleague to give him my new email (to replace my work email) & luck just happen to strike. So I'm praying daily for the opportunity to be fruitful to stay in Houston, because all my other friends have taken from 4 months to over a year to even get an interview, so I'm very thankful because I'm looking at having to move to NYC or LA to get a job ASAP with my talent. Even thou I have a family (a wife & 2 girls & one on the way) I'm fearless in pursuing avenues to other cities; you can say I have the "fortitude" (thank God the lessons learned from playing “Football” & from my Religion, I apply them well to my way of Life & Career). And as they say on the Streets, "sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, to survive". So now with time on my hands after TCB, it's back to fine tuning my Revit Skills & praying for those calls or emails to come in. Oh, & one last thing in case nothing else pays off, I'm putting an APB that I'm for Hire & I wouldn't mind packing my bags whether you pay for my relocation or not. For me BIM "is a hell of a drug", I just can't wait to do it again, and again, and again, he he he. Peace & Hair Grease, I have to get back at learning new ways to utilize the Revit API.
