Well, the time has come. I was finally let go from my small marketing company that I’ve worked at since June. It was never a good fit- I struggled mightily the whole 6 months I was there, and finally, on Monday, I was let go. It was mutual- I wasn’t doing well and that was frustrating, and it was frustrating to them. They said they would be happy to give me a good recommendation, which is great, I’m just not a marketing person. I’m an academic, through and through, and that’s where I belong. Now, on to the job search!
