- Wedding: June 2011
So I was once a more active bee but since my wedding have just been reading and staying low key, but I just needed to vent. Sorry.
I work for a nonprofit (Habitat for Humanity of my local area) and have worked my ass off for them for little pay (like most nonprofit jobs) for years. I love the work that I do, and I love the help that people get from my work. We have store called the ReStore where we sell donated furniture, appliances and building material. A few months ago we had to let the old store manager go. At that time I was asked to fill in while we found someone to fill the role for the long term. In that time I have been able to exceed in sales, bring in new volunteers, get the store looking better and improve the general morale. I really like doing it and decided to apply. Today my Exectutive Dirrector pretty much told me that I wouldn’t get the job. She hasn’t even looked at my resume (which is highly qualified) and didn’t even talk to me about it the actual possition. I am just disapointed and feel like I could cry and eat ice cream for days.
I don’t know how I will be able to continue to work there knowing that they thought that I was “good enough” to take over a mess, fix it, work 50+hours a week for my entire summer and then not be “good enough” to actually get the possition. It just feels like I am not valued no matter how hard I work and how much time and energy I put in. 🙁
I could use some pictures of cute things right about now.
