Unfortunately the job did not work out. Still not convinced on what happened. I had a good feeling about the interview, though I did find it odd that when looking for a person with a strategic and long term view that they start asking about everything since graduation. As I told the recruitment agency I found that strange. According them I was not strategic enough in my thinking etc. Just about everybody that knows goes like huh? Oh well over and done now.
Anyway that is past tense now and though I was very upset as I really wanted the job I am past that. However I am not going to continue my job. The stress is high, the job is being downgraded and to boot one of the advisers (previous director) found it necessary to try to humiliate me in public including screaming. I did stay calm but afterwards I was a mess. Management by intimidation. Not my style to work with. So at the end of my contract I am going to leave. No money suffices to have to put up with that.
I’ll be fine, SO is extremely supportive and something new will come along again, I am convinced of that. Maybe this is an opportunity for something new and different.
In the mean time we are concentrating today on one thing only SO is running his half marathon today!
