Rob is standard

(no subject)

Earlier today, I had the follow-up chat to my evaluation at work. They're gonna move me. I didn't live up to the expectations my boss had of me when I started at Sales & Marketing. This is not my fault, and I shouldn't see it as failure. As she said: "You are pure gold, and full of qualities and potential, just not in Sales." So for the next few months I can keep myself busy with the Marketingplans for the outlets in the Hotel, but all Sales-related activities have been taken away. No more travelling, no more phoning contactpersons, no more representing the hotel abroad.

F to the u-c-k. That's what made the whole job interesting. In the mean time I also have to decide what new direction I want to take. Do I want to stay at the hotel (for both my boss and the lady from Personell have told me they don't want to see me leave)? Do I still want to try and pursue a career in Sales, but elsewhere? I don't know. At least I'm discovering what I'm good at and what I'm not so good at. I can tell I like to work on a project-basis, give me a project and I'll dive right in to it. Research is also a big quality. I speak four and a half languages, I like to work with people and guests. I like to entertain. I do NOT like telemarketing.

A logical choice for me would be to go back to 'the floor', back to F&B. Thing is, I've had it with irregular hours, working nights and weekends. How the hell will I ever find a job that seems tailormade for me? At least I'm still safe until march next year, after that, time will tell.
