_She says she lost her job this week, but one former Bausch and Lomb employee says she's already been contacted by recruiters.
On Tuesday, Valeant Pharmaceuticals says nearly 500 Bausch and Lomb employees were notified they'd be losing their jobs.
Samantha Duffy says she was one of them, but she says she's keeping a positive attitude and taking this as a chance to get a new experience.
Duffy said, "I'm not sure I want to jump right into it right away. I kind of want to take a little bit of time and kind of access what I want to do and see what's going to be best for me. I told myself I wasn't praying to get laid off. I wasn't praying not to get laid off, I was praying to put me where I'm supposed to be. What's next."
Valeant Pharmaceuticals says some of the employees left immediately. Others will leave sometime before early next year.
