Default I just quit my job

Worked at a call center a year before I did an internship my junior year of college, came back and they didn't hire me till 8 months later after I graduated. Came back, my old supervisor was gone and the guy on his team who couldn't manage for shit got promoted. Spent the last 3 months fking hating it, gave my two weeks, but he told me to just leave early today(last day was this Wednesday). I told him pce ******* and left. Haven't felt so free in a while, can focus on finding out what I want to do for a career now and get my life together (health, social life, etc)

great job burning bridges

and a 4 year college trains you for your career, a bachelors is not meant to help you figure out what you want to do.


btw what was your degree?

Call center jobs....lol. Cannot believe there are people out there that make careers out of this. I'm surprised you don't hear of any call center mass shootings.

It's an entry level position, gets you experience for other listings down the road...nothing unbelievable about it lol.

I'm a business analyst for my company and the only one for my department. There is a call center that is within our department and I just couldn't do it. I guess it can train you for roles further down the line in the company, but the first options are always people that have actual business experience from another company over just being a call center employee.

Meh, I have a good reference from when I worked there before. Political Science, although I did a bunch of finance courses I probably could've minored in that. I didn't really get good guidance with choosing to go to college or my major till it was too late. I probably should've done something in business or got some IT certs and entry-level experience instead. I made sure not to graduate with any debt tho

I'm looking into that and a bunch of stuff, gonna teach myself something useful like excel or salesforce. I would get back into non-profit research, but my internship was in DC and idk if I wanna move there just yet.
