I knew it was a possibility, but it was just confirmed that my contract will not be renewed next week – so Berybury will be extremely unemployed.
I’m not very upset, and I’m not in the woe-is-me phase yet, but I am FRUSTRATED!
1 – I’ve already been having a hard time finding a different position. I called a company back regarding an interview I had last week, and they said they went with someone else because I couldn’t start immediately – I had told them I wanted to give my current employer 2 weeks notice. Had I known I was being let go any way, I would have just quit on the spot!
2 – I had an opportunity to go abroad with my family and visit my sister, and I wasn’t even going to have to pay for it. I passed on the opportunity because I wanted to make a good impression on my employer. Now my dad and sister are going on a great European adventure and I’ll be off of work any way, stuck at home. Grrrr
3 – My current employer made me write a defense for my position. I did that 2 months ago and was led to believe everything was going well and in the works. When I finally cornered my manager today and made him tell me the status, he said they knew they were never keeping me. How come no one wanted to notify me??!!
This company already gave me a bad taste in terms of letting employees go because something similar happened with a co-worker back in December, but I feel I was really deceived about the status of my contract. Why have weekly meetings, continually assigning me work and singing my praises, if you well know I’ll be gone?!
I’m done venting. You’ll probably get another post from me when I start freaking out about my unemployment and financial situation, but I’m trying to delay that reaction.
Hope everyone else is having a better day!
