I'm tired of not working. I never thought I would want to give up my free time to go back to work. When I was furloughed and then laid off 7 months ago, I thought it would be short term but instead it has turned into the longest time I have been out of work since I graduated from college. I have 2 degrees from 2 of the top universities in the country. I have worked at 7 companies and on 14 brands. I have been on cross functional teams, worked in matrix organizations, developed products, relaunched brands, reported to Presidents, presented to Chairmen and board members, signed off on million dollar campaigns, promoted team members and even fired a few. But now I am tired...tired of hearing I don't have enough digital experience, tired of being told I am asking for too much money, tired of not having the right industry experience. I have more business experience than the digital expert will ever have. My multi industry experience proves I have the capacity to learn any industry AND I can bring new ideas to yours. I deserve the salary I am asking for because of what I bring to the table and what I am willing to learn to be the best employee you have. In short, I'm tired of not being the exact person as company is looking for even though that person does not exist. I will find a new job soon and the company that does hire me will fully appreciate all I have to offer.
