So I Got Hired
At a staffing company.
This is definitely not in my industry or what I studied, but I have the soft skills for this job. I’m really nervous, my boss is a stearn man and the office is really small. Everyone is the same ethnicity and its a 24 hour on call type of job. He even told me that I may have to come in at 3AM once I get comfortable. — Not sure how happy I am about that for $9/hr.
$9/hr is better than $0/hr being unemployed — err freelancing
Freelancing I was paid $11-$14/hr
But stability is more important!
I never had a job that paid this small, I’m not above it, but I’m just hoping I have the opportunity to ask for a raise. I’m not even sure if this makes me sound like an asshole because I never ask other people what they make. I always felt that was too personal of a question to ask.
I need to pray. To say this is weird for me, but my anxiety level is so high that I feel that praying to a divine entity may calm my nerves.
So many thoughts.
What if I hate it?
What if they’re mean to me? (sounds silly right?)
I just want to be competent.
