I'm Grateful For, Or How I Became Unemployed
Yes, you read that correctly. My super-cool-sounding social media job is no more. Truth be told, it's been a difficult road since I started at the new company. Without being disparaging, I'll just say that I've known for a while that it wasn't a good fit. Despite those concerns, I worked my tail off to do the very best job there was in me to do, and at the end of the day, they weren't displeased with my work or my work ethic -- it was a money thing and an industry thing and a cloudy view of what social media could do for them.
