Is your input heard at your company? Please be real.
Sometimes. I mean they can't just ignore the person who's handling almost all of the projects the company is involved in ...
No, and if it does, it takes ages.
Rotten to the core!
Lol…Please…I’ve too much melanin. Why would anyone bother to listen to me? 🤷🏻♀️
Melaninos unite!!! But I do love getting the occasional “oh I wish I had your skin color, I bet you don’t get sunburned easily.”
I’m not sure that they realize they make things more uncomfortable by making comments like that. Are you supposed to say, thank you.., I was born this way?
Yes, I worked really hard to be born in this skin thank you for acknowledging my efforts
Mostly. But my job is to impart my knowledge.
On a small scale level, yeah, my manager is pretty open and takes on board concerns
Not at a company wide level though, we're all just replaceable cogs.
but even a cog is worth everything in a gear train, if only one fails all stop turning
Oh it's heard, right until the price tag is discussed and then everybody goes deaf
okay "human", you don't belong in this world. now go to your shitty apartment and pay rent
When I worked in an archive, the procedure was you could come and research for free, or if you were abroad/couldnt make it here you had to pay an hourly rate
for us to research it for you. SO many times I had excited emails about finding their family history from a dude in Idaho or some shit who went quiet after
the price was revealed.
well that's how the apple rots, I suggest crafting a resume that speaks for yourself instead of your ideal and send it to struggling companies you like
