November Remix

After a literal week of attempting to contact my HR representative (with no answer to my 7+ calls) I am happy to say I have been offered (and accepted) a job elsewhere.

I am extremely lucky it happened so fast, especially since I was chosen from around 400 applicants. Sometimes life amazes me, particularly since I was told they were looking for someone young and vibrant and many times I forget that I fit that bill.

So I am looking forward to my first day on Saturday as a showroom assistant for luxury condo sales downtown. Of course, I’m also having a birthday party for myself Saturday night (so I had anticipated not working that day) but I am so grateful at this point to have a new job that I will make it work.

I’ve been having a bit of trouble with my resignation letter, and though a friend of mine told me to just call the store and quit I told her that I would rather have the chance to articulate what happened (even if only one or two people get to see it). I suppose it doesn’t matter if the letter is too harsh (which I feel it is at this stage in the writing process), in my book they are the one that burned this bridge, and discrimination should be called out when it is happening, right?

  2. Totally congratulations on the new job! I’m so happy that something wonderful and fortunate happened for you! And an early Happy Birthday! I hope you have a rousing party on Saturday!

    As for the resignation letter, call them out. Make you sure that you send it certified mail so you know they received it and save your receipt. That way, if it ever comes in question later, you can prove that they received it, they were aware, and yet they did nothing.
