No More

No more internship!!!!!!!!! At 3PM CST I officially finished my internship. Yes, I am finished with the not so fun place of internship. No more Petty Girl!!!!!!! Do you have any idea how much that means? You HAVE no idea.

That girl is extremely threatened, and therefore, territorial. Until today, I was not “allowed” to answer the phones. I could only make appointments with her supervision. Everything I did had to be overseen by her. She never let me do anything on my own but copy, file, and clean. Well she wasn’t there today.

She wasn’t there yesterday either which meant there was a lot of work that needed to be done. When I arrived this morning at 8:15, files were piled on shelves needing to be put away, and the phone was ringing off the hook. We all pitched in and by 10AM we were almost caught up. That was a relief which brings me to the point of the day.

Since everyone was busy, someone else had to start answering the phone. Well, guess what? On my last day, I started answering phones. And, shock of all shocks, I could answer the phone and not sound like I had no clue! Can you imagine? I even set some appointments without assistance. Wow!!! Who knew?

So I’m on to the next challenge. That would be finding a new job. (Did I ever tell you how much I despise call center work?) I want to work in an office and not have a sales quota. Let’s face it, I suck at phone sales. So my next goal is to find a position that will allow me to have a career, not just a job. After the Bachelor’s my objective may change, but for now I want a job I’m good at. And if today was any indication, I definitely want to change my current employment to something more suited to me.

I’m only looking forward. Who wants to go backward?

  3. Yeah, that last sentence makes sense to me because I would have hated it at least as much as you did.
