I've been notified (1.5 weeks ago) that the company I've at for 13 years is being sold to merged with another. The new entity has no plans to maintain an office or employees in my country within a year or two.
For the first time in a long time I'm looking for work, but with a timetable of 1/2 to 2 years.
I'd be insanely lucky to fall into the long term coding positions I've held. 2 in the last 20 years.
