Sometime later this week I’ll be back to major unemployment again.
I plan on quitting my current job because of the following reasons:
- I am seriously not a salesperson. Sure, I only took the job because it had designing in it (manual or digital, doesn’t matter), which was a major part of this Designer Sales job. But ever since I started (and I was all alone and on my own too— I didn’t even have any additional hands-on training by shadowing someone… what the heck?) I have not succeeded in generating any sales. The clients I was assigned were major pricks.
- The pay really worried me big time. It was like diddly-squat! Sure, we’re guaranteed we’d get paid per lead for the first 8 weeks, but right after 8 weeks, then it’s either you make a sale or you don’t get paid. With the way things are running for me with this job I can’t afford to take that risk— spending so much time working, designing an ideal closet, and after talking and discussing with the clients and then they don’t purchase, then I get nothing.
- We all got bills to pay and getting paid diddly-squat isn’t going to get us debt free. This is even a full-time job and yet you don’t even get leads for the entire week. It’s dreadful.
Thus, my reasons why I’m quitting this job. I already began updating and submitting resumes to temp agencies and applying for job openings at job boards everywhere. Of course, I get the occassional emails from “recruiters” who would actually offer me a work-at-home job with such a high pay. I almost fell for that Junior Distributor job that was offered to me by ING. Turns out they’re scams too after contacting ING about this position.
My UI is already expired so I’m going to have to contact EDS again and see if I’m qualified again. Ugh, I seriously hate this recession and I seriously hate being unemployed, knowing you got no money and if I end up borrowing money from my family, that’s extra debt for me.
Yes, 2009 had been a pathetic, awful year for me… and I had so many plans for this year too.
