When we first met in 2011, I was a staff accountant for a Japanese company.
Come on, I know you all remember those stories. Does Russian Hat Man ring a bell? Haha
It was a great work environment and I was very well liked and respected.
While I loved my job, after 5 years of accumulating more tasks, I felt overworked and under paid.
Then I got p r e g n a n t.
From a mental standpoint, they were super supportive.
From a business standpoint, they saw a young girl in a rough situation and tried to take advantage.
Instead of fighting for a job I loved, I packed up and left.
Talk about a Sicilian temper, huh?
I should have fought for a secure job I loved instead of just up and quitting.
I totally could have spoken to my manager and pleaded my case.
That’s how I ended up where I am today.
I’m a biller for a very large company.
…and by biller I mean a glorified paper scanner…
For the first few months, I hated this job. Then as time went on, I made friends and became comfortable.
…and by comfortable I mean I hung up pictures of Mushy Face in my cubicle…
Then I hit my o n e y e a r m a r k and found out my job was being centralized.
Management assured me that I still had job security, but I would be doing admin work. Bleh
The double slap in the face was when they made the SME in charge of centralizing my own job!
Good thing I learned from my mistakes…
Every muscle in my body is itching to say “I quit” and walk out.
Instead I’m taking my time to find a company I can grow with.
I need a job that makes me happy, is secure, and can still support my little Mushyface.
What do you think is a valid reason to move on to a new job?
**I have a big interview for a supervisor position (doing what I used to) today. Wish me luck!**
