I’ve been pretty busy with school recently since everything will end two weeks from now. Hooray, freedom.
Because of this, I haven’t been going to my part-time job for a week. I know I wouldn’t be able to focus at all on my tasks as a marketing coordinator and so I wrote an e-mail to our director, requesting for a LOA. Little did I know that the company has been bought and is now under new directors.
You can imagine my “what the hell” moment when I read her reply.
. . .
I would have wanted some kind of closure that would appease my worry. Was I fired because of the new directors? Or was I fired because of my performance.
“I have wanted to tell you this in person, but given your situation, I’d like to inform you that we no longer have a need for a marketing coordinator/tutor, the position you have held.”
Now they’re asking me to go back to the office to claim my last salary but I’m not sure if I can face my colleagues at all. This is my first job, and this is also my first time to lose a job.
Was I fired? Was I laid off? I wonder if there is a proper closure for something like this, it sure feels like there isn’t.
