After what happened today, I am a little pissed off and glad to say that I have indeed learnt some valuable lessons in life. And let me stress, particularly life lesson pertaining to my career.
- A phone call last Friday evening while I was enjoying my dinner sounded something like this: "Hey, are you in the office. Oh, then it's alright. I'll sort it out by myself."
- It rang again and this time: "So, you know what happened. Apparently something went wrong. You made a mistake. First thing Monday morning, come to my room and shall go through the event."
That explained the uneasiness in me for the past weekend. I was told that I did something wrong. Feeling unaccepted, I walked in to the office today. Faced my boss and taking in bullets when supposed I am not the only one to blame. Right after that moment, I walked out and checked through the whole artwork again. Thrice I examined it carefully. In the end, we did no mistakes and of course I walked back to my boss and showed her.
Conclusion: Do people always make assumptions without going through the facts ?
- A situation which goes something like this: 50% increase in the basic pay, at least an additional benefit, new environment with new medium to work with, a level or two higher than the current position.
They asked whether I am still looking. Almost gave up, but then I said yes as I needed a fresh place to work in. I don't like it when I am too comfortable. Not a healthy sign. Supposed to get back to them on when I can start, but then again, standard protocols must be complied.
So today I called again to confirm and they told me that "it's going to be put on hold". What to do now ? Almost told everyone that I am leaving. Embarrassed and scared.
Career guidance needed badly.
Conclusion: Keep the big mouth shut !
Basically, those are the 2 things that still bothering me up till now. Off to bed now, an early start for me tomorrow.
Oh god, help me.
