Fort Worth, Texas and Asia. Question: Hi, Alan. After 31+ years with a Fortune 500 company as a Vice President, I have just received notice of my job elimination. The severance package offered is one year. However, I have spent the last 2-1/2 years living overseas in Asia, during which time I received my formal Vice President title, about one year ago. At that time I received a letter stating that the “intent” of my assignment was to be for four years.
