I’ve had 4 jobs since 2020. And I’m getting ready to start my 5th since COVID hit. That’s a record. My husband moaned taxes for 2020 were going to be a nightmare.
March 27 – Job 1 ends – worked HR for about 6 months, and family decided to sell company, and then COVID hit – Filed Unemployment claim, don’t receive any checks until June.
August 17 – Job 2 – P/T HR – that lasted only 2 days!!! A manager wasn’t present when I was interviewed/hired, and when he returned he had someone else in mind for the position…they had to do the interview & after (I can’t prove it) – they just told me it wasn’t working. Training was going great! WHAT? No worries, because I got a call from another company…
August 31st – Nov. 6th – Job 3 – Law Firm Receptionist – swore I’d never work for the legal industry ever again (and I mean ever) but it’s been 15 years… thought maybe it be would different in another state, and easy job of just answering phones…should be fun. It wasn’t. Quickly put out my resume again.
Nov. 16th – Jan 12th – Job 4 – Admin Assist for Metal Fabrication – GREAT 6 hour daily job and good pay. Loved it, but with family owned companies, there is always nepotism and the daughter decided she was going to keep doing payables after all, which was my primary function so they kept me long enough to help clean up old files at the end of the year. What just happened? Requested Unemployment claim to be reactivated.
Feb. 12th – Job 5 – last Friday, I get a TEXT from a head hunter. They must have been someone I reached out to last March? They have an opening for a contract job lasting until end of June. AND without even being interviewed, I can start tomorrow or next Wed. WHAT?
