I was fired Tuesday. I had an interview Friday, and I have two interviews on Monday. I am so happy I'm having some luck finding something. Plus I've been doing some transcription work online. Already made $20 from my first 4 projects since I've been unemployed. With all the job applications and transcriptions, I don't think I've ever worked harder. I don't care if I have to get up at 4 in the morning for a job, I'll adjust. I'm gonna need a lot of energy drinks, but I'll do whatever I have to. Especially if it's not a customer heavy job, I don't care.
I had my first job interview in a long time yesterday. I was so excited, I forgot to get the interviewer's name, I forgot to ask what position they were interviewing for. I get there, realize I didn't get the person's name when they called me so the person at the customer service desk didn't know which manager they needed to call for. The interviewer asked why I wanted to work there, I started selling myself as a customer service type person thinking it was for a cashier type of job. Then they tell me it's for a stocker. I'm fine with that too, I was exaggerating how much I love customer service anyway, but what I said isn't really relevant to a stocker. I checked when I got home, I didn't even select stocker as an option on my application. Again, I'd be fine with that, I just wish I prepared a better answer for that question. If I get the job, I'd be really surprised. I got the vibe that the interviewer didn't like me and I have no experience in stocking.
I got fired two days ago. I thought I'd be able to immediately apply for a different project in my company since it wasn't for attendance or misconduct issues. My manager told me when the next class for the other project started and didn't mention I'd have to wait. Turns out I have to wait three months to start at another project. I can reapply in about 2 months but the new hire class would have to start at least three months from now. I'm really stressing now. I was hoping if I didn't get a job somewhere else, at least I'd have this to fall back on. I'm nervous. It's been 2 years since I've had to worry about job applications and interviews. I'm still looking on the bright side, maybe I'll find somewhere even better than my last job.
Got caught doing homework at work. Boss is pissed at me. Wouldn't be so embarrassing except that I'm in my 30s. Fml
I fucked up. I'm a trainee, and sometimes we have school days where we don't have to go to work, but just go to school for a day (which starts much later than work). I thought today was a school day because it says so in our calendar, but on our last day there we were told that it had been rescheduled - the thing just is that I forgot about that. I just realized when I was sitting in the empty classroom for a while. Now I seriously have no idea what to do. I can either go to work, which would not only be quite embarrassing, but also means that all my overtime hours get cancelled, but I NEED those hours. Or I could go home and hope that nobody will ever find out; which is likely to happen because I don't see how they would, unless my teacher suddenly gets the idea of calling work to ask whether I'm there, which never happened before. But of course, if they did find out, I'd get fired.
I thought today was going to be a good day. Finally showered after too long for me to admit. My hair looked nice. Put lotion and perfume on. Ate breakfast. Anxiety before work was minimal. Except for working out or doing yoga, I did all the things that make me happy and relaxed. Get to work, take one long annoying phone call, then go to a meeting where I'm fired. My sales metrics were way below goal for too long. I didn't even realize it was that bad until now. But it's a call center with different projects and they suggested coming to HR in a few days to apply for another project. There's one for FedEx that's not sales heavy at all. I've heard you just help people with their orders, the only metric is handle time. Their next class starts in about two weeks. I'm hoping I can get into that one. If not, hopefully another call center will take me. I'm 25 and that's the first time I've ever been fired. I've had 5 jobs, including that one, and I've always given notice before quitting. I'm hoping I can get something that's strictly customer service, no sales. I just need something fast, bills are coming up. If you're a praying kind of person, pray for me please.
Have you ever felt like empty eventhough you've gotten what you want? Sometimes, I cry when I'm alone (and I dont know what the reason). I dont even know why this happens.
I always know that in life we always have so much we still need to learn especially while still young and growing. But when I'm actually in the situation where I started stepping towards my goals, that's when I realized how much how I still don't know and still need to learn. Knowing something is just stuck in our minds but realizing something it's something we embody.
Last week I was feeling really crappy and anxious at work. I wasn't pitching the things I need to as part of my sales metrics because I didn't want to be a bother to customers who probably hear the same scripts every time they call in. My metrics suffered, which made my anxiety and depression worse. Unless some easy sales fell in my lap, I wasn't getting anything. But my coach told me every member deserves to hear the benefits of whatever I can offer. That really helped me today. I pitched everything on nearly every call and no one's been rude about it. If I remember it's not just trying to meet my goals, it's trying to help other people benefit, that helps me want to offer it more.
3 hours and 23 minutes until my day off starts. I'm having to count down the time until my break to get through it. Not even an hour and a half until my break. And after my break, the calls will pretty much be dead and I can relax for most of the last 2 hours. Personally I'm hoping the calls will slow down after I come back from lunch. I'm exhausted.
