Happy Friday everyone! Next week I have some guest posts prepared for you since I’m sure you want me to get back to recipes instead of talking about temp work. So today is the last day I’ll talk about my summer job…
So TODAY is day 3 at the new assignment. Textbook people are humorless, but I sincerely believe it is because they have no windows. The permanents seem to like their work, but they don’t like small talk or get-to-know you talk.
The manager is a go-getter, by-the-book, every-jot-and-tiddle type of woman. Her underlings are a blonde all-American type and a happy Bahamian woman with great clothes. There will be 2 more temps in our stuffy office before summer is through, and I’m curious to see who will join our team.
So as I mentioned yesterday, I had a beautiful first week at my summer job – at a cosmetics lab. It was really cool to see how modern Orthodox Jews combined kosher laws with fashion trends. The office was across from a beautiful lake and my desk had a perfect view. Also they were always feeding me. I got along with everyone – especially the sales and marketing team, however as a summer temp, when the temp agency told them I was pregnant & would need time for appointments etc they tearfully told me they would need someone more… Well less pregnant…because tradeshow season is cpming up etc etc…
“Not to worry,” the temp agency told me, “We have something better for you.”
They moved me to the Events department at a Textbook Publishing Company. I tell myself I am thankful for work in the windowless office where my cubicle is hidden behind a filing cabinet (don’t put baby in a corner), the people are grammar police and I thank God its only for the summer.
The cosmetics lab was more fun.
So as I mentioned before, I am working as a receptionist for a cosmetics lab this summer. I was told the dress code was “smart business casual” and since I’m working for a cosemetics company, make-up is a must. Here is my first week’s #outfitoftheday.
It wil be interesting to see how my style evolves as I become more visibly pregnant.
