Thank you bro for the word of encouragement.

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

You can still send them another email that you made a mistake and you are now ready to work with them..Just try first

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

Sorry

Dear Op,

If you can get three jobs same time, it means you're good (be proud of yourself). Don't think too much about this, brace yourself up for the sake of your small family. I believe you will land a great offer in no time.

Regards to your little one and wiffy.

Don't be hard on yourself. It simply wasn't your fault as you chose the offer you thought was best for you.

Sorry about what happened. I do see your posts and you are quite an optimistic and calm man. Congrats on your upcoming fatherhood and better jobs ahead.

Calm down

But please clarify:

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

They won’t sack you, but the things you’ll see ehn? E go big pass your eyes.

Any organization that has a high staff turnover rate is most likely a bad one. Except it is KPMG. lipsrsealed

Try contacting the HR of the other 2 jobs to see if any of the offers might be reopened. Walk in and try to obtain a personal discussion

Terminations are politically motivated 80% of the time. You didn't get on very well with the higher ups??

Maybe you are not qualified as they may have seen from the few months you have worked.

It is called probation period, getting a new job is not for relaxation but sitting up. No company will keep someone that they think is PURE (Previously Unidentified Recruitment Error).

Some company will upskill u, but this one decided to move on with a better person

You were once jobless when you later had that job. Now that you're jobless again means that you will still be employed again.

Re: How I Chose The Wrong Job by Proselling: 7:15pm On Feb 21
I sympathize with the OP but that is as far as it goes.

It would be nice to hear the employers' side of the story.

Companies do not just let go of very 'good and productive staff '.

Even for the most reckless companies, your numbers will always com in to play in time of greatest need.

But then again, it appears you are really good in what you do since you got three offers at once, you can recreate that scene all over again.
