Today, my boss sent me a Word document that he wanted me to make into a PowerPoint presentation for him. It was a set of proposals for the board of directors about cost-saving options. The third option was to eliminate my position in the company. FML

And add some "special" sections. Take a leaf out of fight club ;)
Assuming it's real and not a mistake an oversight or test that had to be the stupidest boss in the world. If you're being fired anyway might aswell go out in style. the industry we call them, cigarette burns

#20 It sounds like the boss is asking OP to create a proposal that will potentially eliminate his position (and thus leave him jobless) anyway. Unless the company somehow spares OP, he really has nothing to lose here.


If it was the third option then there are at least two other, better options and well two out of three ain't bad.

Also, even if they eliminate OP's position that doesn't mean a loss for f job b as they may be able to slot him in somewhere else.

agreed seeing that had to have sucked! But you got a heads up, thays a plus! So do go look for something new and save all your money just in case theres a break in between.


In most states the future employer can only ask a few questions. "Did so and so work for you? How long did they work for you? Would you employ this person again, yes or no?" Saying anything outside of that can be construed as libel, and you can sue for lost wages because they prevented you from finding work.

Make THE BEST POWERPOINT PRESENTATION EVER. Then, he'll see he'll miss your PowerPoint skills if he goes that route. Add effects and sparkles and clapping sounds, and... well, maybe not.

If you eliminate the position, that means nobody can take that position because it won't exist anymore. I think you're looking for "getting him fired so the OP can take the job".
