...oh boy -- job hunting

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 12, 2018, 12:03 PM
I must have really checked out from this job as of late. It's been a good run, it really has... but I'm officially done. At least I'm pretty sure. The only difference between now and the last time I left a job is the fact that I really have to get the clean break. I've got bills to pay. I can't just disappear like I did the last time. Granted, I'm also not in the midst of a mental breakdown.

        But yeah... I didn't think I'd end up writing this much, but apparently I needed to vent. Only solace is knowing I'm not the only person at this job that isn't happy about last week's announcement. Regardless.. I've been typing away at this all day while at work, between phone calls and such. Also... I've been job hunting all day. The way I see it is, at least I can view this as getting paid to look for another job. Not that I'm not doing mine currently. I'm just copying & pasting links to job openings of interest/I think are worth checking out, for me to actually put in for once I get home from work.
            My biggest concern is what I'll do when/if I get a call regarding an app/resume. I've never had to worry about job hunting while currently working at a job. I'm sure I'll figure it out. But anyway... If you're wondering wtf has led to me seeking other employment, I'll share the tale below.

    Last year, our office manager happily retired shortly after finally deciding on his replacement. His replacement has been wonderful. He's been understanding, approachable, and overall easy to work with or talk to when needed. About two weeks ago, we got word via company-wide e-mail that he'd be departing. Since he joined our company, he became the HR manager since the multiple duties the previous manager had have been split to different people.. But this guy was a crucial part of the management system.

    I was hopeful his replacement would be hired from outside the company. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. 

It shouldn't have been such a shock that this guy was leaving us about a year after starting. He came from what is essentially Corporate America. We're a much, much smaller scale. We like to have our fun while also doing our jobs. I think he just couldn't implement all the changes and improvements he would have liked due to some resistance from the power above him. It sucks. It really does.

    The person they selected from within the company definitely has a number of us younger employees ready to turn tail and run. If I didn't have a car payment in my name, I wouldn't have a problem with jumping ship before lining something up but... I'd much rather not do that. I'd rather be fired and be able to collect unemployment. I also know I'm not the only person that is bailing or wanting to bail because of this change.

    This person from within that was selected is 100% clique-y. She is not approachable. She was a skill for belittling you so subtly you don't realize it until moments later/after the fact. She definitely has her faves that won't be treated equally to everyone else. Not to mention, multiple workers in the clerical department had complained about this person's attitude and treatment of them. This leads me to believe that he did not get to actually select his replacement, or have much of any say in the matter. I get this person has previous management/supervising experience, but her attitude toward others absolutely blows anymore.

    She hasn't actually even begun her duties in this position, and she's already walking around like a f---ing hot shot. It really pisses me off seeing it. I have little reason to be concerned, but she has problems with people. I'm probably also one of those people. One of the other people from the department she was originally in is freaked out by her getting the position. This is because this particular person has been having mental health issues, which is something she had to talk to HR about due to it affecting her attendance beyond allowed paid days off. This replacement will have access to that type of information, and it has this one worker genuinely concerned that it'll be used against her.

    Some of us are feeling like this chick is going to target people... or if she won't be targeting... feel as though she's going to do little to support us if there is a problem. Workers shouldn't ever feel that way about the HR department.

NJ-based, self-taught traditional artist getting back to doing the art thing. I'm trying to explore new mediums, draw some stuff I didn't really draw before, step a little out of my comfort zone. I'm also totally open for commissions, down for art trades & collabs, by the way.

side note: this deviantart account sat for two years unused and entirely empty before i finally returned to start making and posting art. form account can be found:


Nothing really beats searching for new job opportunities while at your current job. I really must be checking out if I'm seeing this as getting paid to job hunt. 

    The incoming change to HR management truly was a final straw for me. :|
Inktober finale dump in-progress.
I'd say sorry, but if I don't post tonight they'll never go up.
Finished one piece shy of hitting my goal of 15.
Not sure I'll be adding a 15th piece or not. I might just so that I have a pretty art piece for the cover of my binder these are all in.
Just had the epiphany that I'll be joining everyone in the drawing-a-day Inktober panic. To hit my goal of 15 pieces for my half-marathon, I have to do six drawings. There are six days left to October. :scream: :scream: :scream: 
I am going to be completely blunt/unfiltered---
    How in the actual FUCK do you host a contest and say "traditional art entries are not accepted." Are you for fucking real? Just how far up your ass can you put your brain?
