It’s not an AIBU really but just need to park some thoughts.

We are going through a “surprise” restructure at work (LA). Was announced mid last month.

Am now in a position where I have to reapply for my own job although my actual role doesn’t really exist in the new structure, so have to reapply for something different.

I have a role which I gained with my experience and have done for 7 years I do not have a degree, most of my colleagues do, and we are all being pitted against each other.

I am going to have to apply before I go away on honeymoon in a few weeks and won’t know the outcome until I get back.

Urgh have just been looking at the application form now - it is so shit hmm

Does anyone have any positive tales to tell me sad

This happened to my dad and he felt for sure he would be let go as the two guys he was up against had been there much longer than him and had "better" qualifications. (3 jobs became one so three applicants for one new position)
My dad got the job and all is well in his world now.
Hope thats a little reassuring.

Does your face fit, are you the cheaper option? Always the winner in a restructure, sadly.
