Life change move to new city- Accepted job and it’s wrong
So I have been high level exec asst working for COO and in compliance in nyc at investment firm. I have always had executive assistant titles but that’s not the real description of what I do. I am more of analyst, associate, and HR wrapped in one. I desperately wanted a career change started working with a few career coaches over the last 3 years.
I wanted to leave nyc and with pandemic I did. I took of leap of faith moved to Phoenix. When I started search there were many director of operations roles jobs but those dried up. So August hit knew my nyc company had layoffs coming. So I told myself I needed something to get me started in Phoenix and left my nyc firm.
I did what I said I would not. I accepted another executive assistant job. It’s been a month in the job I am miserable. I joined technology management consulting company and it’s very sketchy . I am just not comfortable. I know I should be grateful but it’s horrible. I hate to be on search and have to Potentially reach out to references but I can’t do this long term. Everything is micromanaged, company misled on 401k and have to wait a year, no coffee, no phones. Asked to come in late use vacation time was an issue. I only took role out of wanting to get situated knew it wasn’t long term thing. I just can’t handle the founder referring to me as administrative assistant and HR and cfo making sure to put me in my place as executive assistant. Every conversation they mention title 10 times.
Thoughts on leaving job just joined.
