An unemployed interviewee’s journey: The choice
By Admin H : So here I am missing the interviews, the hope and the admiration for the BIG ones! Shiny and glowing from the outside, rusty and screwed up from the inside: those simply are the “unemployed interviewee’s” words while leaving her work, when she woke up to realize that one of her future dreams was actually her present’s nightmare.
It is when your idol messes it all up and just hits the ground, when your dream comes down to being the worst thing u can ever wish for. It is actually when you find yourself in that spot that revolution happens. At that precise moment you decide to go small. You flush down the image that only exists in your mind “la vie en rose, ou vert $”, and you face the hideous truth.
It is then, when you come to realize that growing somewhere small is better than shrinking somewhere big! When you learn to study the potentials more than the fake image, and when you get to do your “brofessional” hairflip and tell them to just “F off”.
A reality call for all those “BIG” institutions out there: it is us that make you big or small. It is the active audience and that small portion of employees with the guts to risk it all and just state what they believe in.
Stop faking it; stop living in the glorious past! It’s done… You are done! Unless you’re going to work your ass off and prove that you are still worthy of that Holy reputation (agencies aren’t all that I’m talking about), then please rethink your strategies and just accept the critics and the finger pointing. Leaving my old job, made my surroundings feel as if I’m giving up a huge opportunity, but whoever thinks that way had obviously chosen to ignore what cannot be ignored.
As a blogger I came to see what’s behind and emerges from those billboards. I’ve seen teams stabbing each others in the back (as cheesy and ugly as it sounds), and members of 1 team running through the hallway to steal each others’ ideas and take credit for it, creatives defending the illogical and others just giving up… As an ex-employee I’ve seen disrespect and unprofessionalism, I’ve worked with all kinds of people, I’ve worked for the BIG guys which made me learn how to appreciate and admire the struggling ones. I used to envy YOU out there but not anymore.
Cheers to whoever didn’t sell his ability to choose.. Yet!
