I took up it for two reasons: money (I need money to pay bills), and the boss seems ok (he still does so far, a far cry from my previous psychotic female boss). However, the organisation seems very cliquish. As usual, females like to eat among themselves in a group (I don't know why and I hate that). But I decided to continue my loner activities. After all , I am new and I don't wish to say anything before knowing how the culture is like. As for planning of activities and budgeting, it is really ridiculous that they claimed to have a lot of money but turned out the money is limited as well. However, I am pleased that money is limited because that means I can only do so much.
However, something in me still feels that I deserve better , a higher pay, a better and accurate title, and a good portfolio that allows me to travel (if I can get into an MNC). Recently, I saw a few job posts that fits this but I do not have the relevant experience. I decided to still send it in although I think the chances of them contacting me is very slim. My long hiatus in employment record is bad , but I still hope to be able to travel and be in a global role. Hopefully, this year (supposedly a good year for me) will allow me to snag a good job with good boss, good pay and an international/ interesting portfolio. I still miss business and finance (not banking specifically). And I feel messaging for business beat is way much closer to my heart compared to the rest.
