Today I have a guest post featured on Mustard Seed Money. Below is a short snippet but be sure to click over to read the rest on how I got my foot in the door at my dream job.
Don’t Burn Bridges
First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Mustard Seed for giving me an opportunity to do a guest post on his blog. Mustard Seed Money will always hold a special place in my heart as he was the very first person to leave a comment on my blog. As a new blogger, it’s a great thrill when you receive your first comment. In some aspects, you feel legitimized because someone took the time to recognize your post and leave a comment. So for that, Thank You Mustard Seed! Now onto the post.
My initial job out of college was working as an auditor at a large CPA firm. It’s a great experience as you’re basically forced to drink from a fire hose when you first start and are thrown into the fire. It’s also a highly intense and stressful working environment with a very high turnover rate. Because of this, tensions can run high.
There was one partner that I spent a large amount of time working with. We’ll call her Amy. Working with Amy could be difficult at times as she was easily stressed out and was not very mature considering her experience and status within the company. Amy was also very passive aggressive. She would never tell you to your face if she had a problem with you. But she would tell everyone else behind your back.
