I was offered a job three months ago.
It was a job that I had been seeking for the past two years. I wanted to go back to being a trainer and a company offered me a chance to do so.
Things did not start off well and I knew by the end of the first month, it was a wrong choice.
I decided to stick with the choice anyway , but did bring up to my boss the problems that I faced working in the new environment. He seemed understanding and supportive up till one day my probation was to end. He didn’t even drop the bombshell, he got into a meeting room with HR, half the world across from me and had HR give me the news that they don’t think I am a good fit.
It would have been nice to get a “Good luck and Goodbye ” from the man who hired me. But it looked like he was too much a coward to do so.
I amicably accepted the compensation offered and left the office, after packing my stuff.
My life currently has screeched to a stop.
I was looking back at my Changing Directions articles and realise it was the one thing I was secretly wishing for. Being pulled forcibly out of the corporate environment. But in taking the new job, i had to let go of the online part-time work as well and so my fall back plan had disappeared too.
I wanted to make sure I do not lapse into non-activity and decided to start journaling my Jobless days.
