I’m so sorry! Can you call the company you canceled the interview with this week and see if they are still hiring?

@GreenEyedMoon: I’m so sorry you are going through this :(. I know it’s hard but keep your spirits up and your confidence so you can find another job. Right now it might be hard to find something but come the first of the year, companys are done with their budgets, managers back from their holiday vacations, so you will see a lot more jobs opening up.

I’m so sorry. Don’t feel like a failure. None of this is your fault! Keep your chin up, this is just a small bump in the road. You’ll find a new job soon and can get right back to wedding planning in no time!

If I were you, I’d call back the other company that you had an interview with and see if they’re still looking for someone. Second, I’d ask for a reference letter from your boss explaining why you were let go (not because of your failure to perform or misconduct, but because they were mistaken about the requirements for the position when they hired you) and that for the short time you were there, you showed great enthusiasm, they would hire you for another position in a heartbeat if one were available, and they were sorry to have to let you go.

Don’t worry, it will work out.

awwww that’s so frustrating!  No one likes being fired especially right after starting a new job.  keep your head up and focused on the long term, I know it stinks but things happen for a reason.

I’m sorry πŸ™

I second the suggestions to call the temp agency up though – and ask your supervisor from Japanese Company if he can pass your resume along to anyone else who might need an administrator who speaks Japanese. He obviously likes you, knows you’re a good worker, and most importantly, most likely has connections and can network on your behalf!

ETA: I’m temping myself right now, so I feel you on the money situation, and on the sitting-home-feeling-worthless situation. :/

That really blows…so sorry to hear that πŸ™

I would call the other opportunity back and ask if there’s any way you can come in for an interview. All is not lost. πŸ™‚

I would call that temp agency and tell them that had made the error of placing you somewhere and they should find another place for you.

So sorry’s  you went thru this, but don’t feel like a failure.  Listen, even people with accounting experience aren’t able to fulfill all positions so remember it’s not you, it’s the temp agency’s fault for not gathering correct information!!

Good luck on the possible hires!!
