The new plan-job search

April 17th, 2018 at 02:33 pm

Hi all

I am going to document my job search and my goals during this time here. I think it will be helpful to me and maybe to others to watch and see

Anyway today I am going to figure out what the plan is.. hopefully talk to where I used to work (already left voice mails. sortof discouraging to leave voice mails. it makes me think 'they are busy with productive jobs' and I am unemployed' anyway!!) and get my resume up to date and posted.

probably figure out some goals and $$

and some 'other stuff' to accomplish during this time.. sortof get my life straightened up.

THANKS To all for your SUPER supportive comments. Crazy situation. Could I have maybe done stuff not to have it blow up so bad.. not sure..I guess not call laura out for the untruths and not get upset.
Regardless. was I happy there?.. No.. and the job is gone. would I have been happy there like it was?. not really. I could have grinned and bared it for a while but would it have shown .. probably.. Laura.. This all happened in 3 days.. vague accusations. some of them i was able to disapprove right there.. then sortof significant escalations. a 1:1 reset set up for yesterday and my submitting info on what I had done at work and info on my performance to the hiring manager and then apparently 1:1 cancelled because Laura said thsi was 'unfixable'

Obviously still in defensive mode..

I will get better.. and I want to do everything in my power to not dip into Dad's money or the savings which means working other jobs outside of my field, short term gigs or doing my own consulting on the side. My net cost to live is $5000 NET/month

Will file for unemployment today

I have a check for $3570 coming Friday and then 3 more hours due to me..after that.

Be creative

    Rachael, you are such an inspiration-- you are just picking yourself up and getting about your life. Good for you! I think your analysis of the chance for success at the old job is correct. Not too likely. I also wondered if CB in her post to your original news had it right. You had intuitively picked up on something toxic in the new job.
    Good luck!

    I will second Carol's congrats about not letting this get you down. Are there any job fairs going on where you are or maybe professional conferences for your professional area?

    Good idea to blog about your job search.

    Again, I'm sorry for the way things worked out, but maybe it is for the best in the long run. Let's pray that is so.

    One door closes, another one about getting in touch with some headhunters, who always seem to pull good-paying jobs out of their hats?
