As I look at the year in review, I realized, it’s time to bitch about my job again. You may recall that I wasn’t sure about this job. And I went into quit after orientation because my heart and my head told me that this wasn’t a good idea. But when I talked to the big boss, he talked me out of it. He told me what a great opportunity it was. The deal is they hire you on contract at a low salary. He promised me he would do everything in his power to get me hired on at full salary just as soon as he could.
Yeah, it is such a great opportunity.
He just got fired.
And all my political capital walked out the door with him. I talked to my direct supervisor today. She said that she was sure I was fine until my year contract was up, but she wasn’t sure about a permanent job. The whole place is being restructured.
Career wise, I am right back to square one.
