I found this site over the weekend and am excited to see what's happening.
I was let go from my job on Friday. There was a mix of factors, but basically, it boiled down to me struggling to prioritize and align with my manager's expectations. It was a huge blow, it was the most money I'd ever made and I was feeling so good about that.
I have been working as a marketing and communications professional for 10 years and have produced some great work, but keeping a job has not been in the cards for me. I've been through acquisitions, restructuring, emotional abuse, and taken some shiny opportunities that didn't pan out. At this point, I think I need to do something different. Something with a bit more structure and something that involves more interaction with people. Oddly marketing doesn't provide that as much as I expected it to.
I'm interested in organizational development and company training. I've taught business and marketing classes before and really enjoyed them. I love having conversations so that makes me think sales might not be a bad fit for me, although I hate the idea! I'm also interested in project management and volunteer coordination, also things I am experienced in.
I welcome any thoughts, thanks for reading this!
