Yesterday was as bad as I expected it to be. The retail lady (lady used very loosely here) who has been scheming for my boss’ job was, indeed, announced as his successor yesterday, and had a very smug meeting with the team. This was followed by a meeting with the senior members of the team wherein we tried to bring her up-to-speed on basic concepts such as PPC, SEO, etc., as well as what merchandising the site for the Christmas holidays would entail.
I shit you not.
I am so out of there. I think I’ll grab any contract work that I can, and take some time to look around and decide what I want to do.
I’m for sale. I can’t offer you my soul, because that has been systematically destroyed over the past two years, but I can offer senior-level experience in web development, design, information architecture, search optimisation, and multimedia (Flash, video editing, etc.).
I’m alternating between relief, terror and absolute, black depression. And I’ve been awake since 3:00 am.
