Marc will become famous soon enough
Default You've got to be kidding me...

I started my new sales job for an online marketing company Monday. I spent the whole week in training and was pretty optimistic. Then the CEO and COO fly in from headquarters in CA this morning and abruptly announce the whole office is closing, all 35 employees here in NC are terminated. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I just signed a 12-month lease extension at my apt with the expectation that I'd have this job, and I left my last job as a freight broker for a logistics company because I had this offer with the marketing company.

Now I'm left shocked and angry trying to figure out what my career will be. I'm even considering the local BMW dealership ... selling cars. Or real estate, but that might be insane. Or even doing affiliate marketing online from home.

So shitty that I wasted my whole week training, and had all these hopes and expectations, and now I get terminated. Oh well ... just venting. I know such is life and this happens. It's a learning experience for sure.
