How I Chose The Wrong Job by wunmi590(m): 3:26pm On Feb 21
I just want a lot of people to learn from my experience look before you leap.

I got 3 employment letter last year, and to resume the same day. Two on the mainland and one on the island.

One of the two on the mainland has a better salary than the other two, so I went for the better salary, as an upcoming father.

But believe me I didn’t know that they were only using money to entice people and then tell them to leave at their own time.

I received the shocking of my life when I opened my mail on Thursday to do a handover to a colleague on Friday last week.

I couldn’t cry, but I just had to hold back my tears and I brought out my phone and looked at my 2month old baby and moved on.

My advice, please don’t be in a rush to chose a job or switch that job and lastly always be prayerful that God should direct your path.

That was how I lost the 3 jobs

I feel your pain, move on and be hopeful.
You can't give up now as you got bills to pay, family to care. God will give you a better offer.

Hi, your story is rather disheartening.
It's not your fault, you never knew. They are wicked and selfish, as they use workers to their advantage. I feel your pain.
I pray you get a better job soonest. I wish you the best!

I actually saw the sign the 5th week I entered, but there’s little or nothing I could do, as I have sent mail to the other two that I have gotten a job.

I really appreciate your prayers

Next time seek spiritual guidance to select instead of using your judgement.

Calm down

But please clarify:

What exactly do you mean by "leave at their own time"?

What's worth doing is worth doing well, I don't think it's out of place to state the name of the company and what they're into, that treated you in such manner.

It's unethical and the populace need to be aware and avoid such organizations.

Sad. I can imagine what you're going thru.

I was in this same dilemma some years back, I'm glad I made the right choice of turning down the offer, as govt brought out new regulations and the company had to fold after a few months.

After that, I got some other offers, but I decided to decline them all and now I regret that decision.

Sometimes, these things are beyond our control and you shouldn't beat yourself up.over it.

You sound like a good man, may God open many more doors for you.

Op you were very smart to have brought out your phone and looked at your three months old baby, believe me that child's guardian angel will definitely make a way for you. Just mark my words, in no time you will receive a call for another job.

It is well... God will open another door for you.

Think of it, If you could get 3 job offers at once in this harsh economy, God can do even more for you.
