New chapter, new beginnings

Yesterday I was told that my department was closing, that the Marketing Department would no longer be running, that I would not have a job. Oh well that’s flipping brilliant isn’t it? Nope. Not at all. I was sat there in shock as I did not even make it to the ‘yay for being here for 6 months’ moment. No banners for me.

How do I feel?

There are no words, I am angry, disappointed, frustrated and feel extremely let down by the company. We worked our arses off to do what we had done, we redesigned the website after intensive research, re-worked and re-wrote the website content, wrote content for a brochure TWICE and well it has all gone to waste. Just used and abused, thrown in the trash like we didn’t do anything for the company. Crazy.

So what happens now? 

Now I look for new opportunities, now I take the experience I have gained from being a Content Writer and use it within the next career path. There is not a set career path just yet but whatever I decide, I will work just as hard and carry on gaining skills. This gives me chance to become a much stronger person and continue writing with a smile on my face.

Here’s to a new chapter and holding my head up high!!

    I’m very sorry to hear about what happened to you. It’s very sad.

    Up until recently I worked as a Content Writer for a marketing agency, and I was only at the company for 3 (almost 4) months when my time came to an abrupt end and my contract was terminated. Not only that, I was weeded-out of the company in such a sneaky and sly way, and I felt as though I had been used and unappreciated for the hard work I had done. Instead I’ve been penalised, despite being a new starter. It makes me sad and angry because I’ve been put in a bad position financially because of my job loss.

    Anyway, onwards and upwards. I’ve decided to take this as the opportunity to find bigger and better opportunities and to pursue my dream of working in magazine journalism, as well as trying to find opportunities to go self-employed (because I’m sick and tired of being messed around by employers on a regular basis.)

    I can see that you’ve written posts about working as an au pair and Avon rep, but I understand how hard it is to break into the media industry. I wish you the best of luck.
