So I lost my job today. One of three, but the most lucrative and professional of them all. Luckily, I can pick up more hours at the other two and pay the rent and bills, but sadly they don't contribute to my professional growth much. I guess I can't say I was fired, since it was a temporary position that potentially could have lead into a salaried spot, but I certainly could have busted my ass more to keep it. It also taught me two things: lie to HR about certain shit and cold calling sucks dick. The reason why I say lie to hr is because had I not been honest and said that I am not motivated in sales and do the bare minimum, I would have gotten a job in marketing. I should have just said "sales isn't for me, but I excel in the marketing aspect of it, so put me in marketing full time". That's what really fucked me on this one, since I was very enthusiastic when speaking to the marketing people. I realized the error of my ways, though, and left on a good note. No punching/screaming/stealing shit. Except I took a vitamin water. FOCUS: When have you been canned? Did you do any crazy shit? What did you learn from the experience?
