I was also offered a permanent position and ranked ahead of the others a year after I got hired because nobody wanted to stay in that position but me. So I took the offer. Then the rise of the bitches began.
I see them everyday; Greet them everyday; Little did I know that they were already back stabbing me. The person I gifted a bag with was spreading rumors about me. One even called the head of the personnel to talk about how awful I am to work with. On top of that, my paper that would make me permanent went missing. I was lucky enough that I have two good friends who know me well and saved me.
That was then, now, although the bitches hasn't fallen, the uprising subsided a little but I'm still getting the same question. Whether I'll leave my job to transfer somewhere better and what will be the factor to make me leave?
I did think of it before but the thing is, wherever I go, there will be people hating me and probably could do worse than just spreading rumors and ruining my reputation. The only thing I'm holding on to is the fact that I enjoy what I'm doing, work and life balance and great pay.
Now people from work is questioning whether I have enough work experience from the industry to actually teach, which I don't. I try my best to keep up with what I'm lacking by attending seminars but I know it's not enough. Somehow I feel like I need to leave to be better with what I love to do. On the other hand, I know I have enough to start a business venture and get my industry practice from there. What I'm not sure of is whether I'd be able to manage a full time work, a business, a blog and my post graduate studies all together and all I'm telling myself is "Enjoy the damn work load while you're at it so you'll have something to laugh at when you're older."
Thank you for reading something this long. Any advice would be helpful and appreciated. I'll write to you again soon.
