I cannot go into too much detail on something that I have been dealing with for over a week now but I feel like I really need to document not just the good but also the bad and challenging here on the blog. Plus having everyone's support makes the journey easier.
For the last year some changes were made at my work that I didn't totally agree with but I pressured through them and tried to have a good mindset that it would get better. Unfortunately it did not get better, it got worse. In the last couple of months things started taking a turn for the worse and the work environment eventually became an unsafe one that made me really question what I was doing there.
Not every day was horrible and these changes were not something petty such as a change in my position or in the way I did different procedures. It was behavior from other employees and management that would and should not be acceptable in any work environment.
On Tuesday of last week there was an incident that allowed me to make the definite decision to no longer continue working there and I resigned immediately on Thursday after returning to work after taking off Wednesday as a vacation day.
This was definitely one of the hardest decisions that I had to make but at this point I knew I did not need to put up with this and I needed out. Mindy, my other co-worker and the office audiologist also resigned at this time. Thursday was packed with filling out paperwork and filing reports. We applied for unemployment and the job searching began.
Today I had my first interview at a law firm.
Everything went very good in my perspective.
And it must have because I was just contacted an hour ago for a second interview.
Tomorrow I am going to be interviewed and get to meet the attorneys at the office.
I am very hopeful and looking forward to this new adventure.
