So, we finna have testimony service TUH-DAY!
In 2013, I was laid off twice for non-performance reasons. I had recently graduated from business school with hopes of being an HR consultant, but it NEVER HAPPENED FOR ME. Interview after interview. Rejection after rejection, you know what I’m talmbout! I was completely miserable.
I was shacking up and while she was a sweetheart about it, I really didn’t have any mulah. No coins. Ducets were low. Savings and unemployment only went so far.
We decided to move back to the DMV and things got to poppin. The only problem was, I worked a bunch of contract jobs or permanent jobs at companies that didn’t amount to anything. So, here comes this great opportunity while I’m 6 months into yet another contract position.
It offered a significant bump in pay AND it was permanent. Mind you, I had neeeeeverrrrrrrr made what I was worth AND had more student loan debt from business school. It wasn’t the type of work that I wanted, but that gross income was calling me. And at the same time, I had an offer for my dream job. It would have been less pay but it was EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED with MF BLOOMBERG! Dream job! BUT – it was a contract to hire. So, what did I do like a fool, turned it down and went for the money.
Get here and realized that my boss was janky, underqualified, lied to me about what was needed, and me an her been getting into it ever since. I despise her. Loathe her. Happy when she don’t come in the offfice.
Today, I just accepted an offer to GO BACK to a company that I had contracted at, but for a PERMANENT POSITION.
WITH A RAISE.
WITH A SIGNING BONUS!
