A History of a Have Nots
I got laid off in 2008 from my last ‘real job’ because I worked for a real estate company and they closed shop. It’s been a string of temp jobs since – and nothing’s been promising. I always know when a meeting is gonna be my last by the prickly feeling I get between my shoulders – and the feeling is always right. Last temp job: I put sticky notes on the piles of papers I had to work on in the following week- instructions on where I was in each process – for no reason at all at the time. I left on a Friday and got an email that evening that I wasn’t needed anymore. The online job ads are phony and no one wants to bother to pick up a phone. I would even take contract work if it was straight from a company and not a temp recruiter. I’m not picky anymore – but my dream is permanency. It always has been.
