My Career Struggle- Episode 4

Hi mama.


It would be ideal if you I need your recommendation on a work environment related issue, I feel you would be in the best situation to exhort me, as others generally appear to get enthusiastic about it. I am a new alumnus of Psychology, I’m through with my administration year and I had been work looking since I completed until mid-June when I was advised to go to this enlisting firm situated in Ikeja to present my CV and they could interface me up with an occupation that fits into what I need. I went after positions that are Psychology, Education or Human asset slanted in light of the fact that those are the things I can do well with. On arriving the man that talked with me extended to me an employment opportunity as the advocate in the enrolling firm. His terms were that I fill in as an assistant for 3 months and he will pay me 25,000 after which I would be offered full work and my compensation will be explored. It wasn’t the best of offers yet I acknowledged and began working in June.

At the time I began, there were 5 different staff, 4 of them take a shot at the field, landing the positions and the individuals that need the occupations and the last staff filled in as the cleaner/task man. So I and my manager alone work in the workplace. The four staffs dealing with the field were contract staffs so they procure as they work. I acquire month to month and work 5 days every week except he demands I chip away on Saturday so I get a day in the week off which isn’t awful.

So around three weeks prior there was a misconception between my chief and the staffs on the field since they were not meeting their objective and he would not pay them for their work in June, I comprehended his estimations since they hadn’t met even 10% of the objective and they had been getting transport recompense from him. They all, in the end, quit working, on the third of July, the cleaner fellow excessively quit working, so I’m right now his lone staff and I should be filling in as an “advisor”

So he called me on the fourth of July for a concise gathering where he revealed to me all that went down among himself and all the staff that left. He likewise said that God had called him into Full-time service, (in case I overlook, he’s a minister and he runs his congregation in the extremely smaller than usual corridor here with only 2 individuals and his family as the assembly, however, I don’t have an issue with that) yet I would, in any case, be doing directing increasingly like “otherworldly guiding” for individuals that need assistance, he additionally said that since the cleaner is gone and it is simply himself and me so I would do the cleaning including the latrine, at that point I would likewise be altering his books, (he is a writer, and he has a few books he hasn’t distributed at this point), I wasn’t so satisfied with the new position terms yet I figured it was better than being at home sitting idle. So I have been doing this since this month and my entire explanation behind composing this presently is each day he thinks of new position jobs that are not what I anticipated

A week ago he completely changed my activity from being an instructor to being his aide, I had been requesting a rundown of my expected set of responsibilities since the principal day I began yet he hasn’t been reacting, a week ago he requested that I compose what the activity job for an office aide ought to be and send it to him, I composed it and at the beginning of today during the commitment, he lectured about sets of expectations, he said they are” restricting” and he can’t work with them or give me one since he works dependent on the heading of the Essence of God.

Additionally in the wake of demanding that I was unable to get Saturdays off in light of the fact that they were the “assessment days” (the staffs on the field used to come around to give provides details regarding how the work is going), he has now said I can just take Saturdays off than I previously wanted to chip in someplace once in a week to do what truly satisfies me yet he is taking that from me now. At some point a week ago he approached me to go with him for evangelism “he attempted to term it road advising”

The fundamental explanation I am composing this is simply to ask this one inquiry. Is it ordinary or ideal for the manager to simply change worker work jobs in the middle of business or am I simply being not persistent in my work?

If it’s not too much trouble just counsel me since I’m really unsettled here, the main way I could be upbeat is on the off chance that I find a good pace I needed to and that is going to be detracted from me as well. Much obliged to you for listening to mama

One thought on “My Career Struggle- Episode 4

  1. You should resign and get out of there as soon as possible. You read psychology for goodness sake, you should be able to read the writing on the wall. You would be so entangled in a web that you wouldn’t even be able to explain.
    So not worth it even for a higher paying salary.
    That’s not a job, it’s just someone using and manipulating you physically, spiritually and mentally. The damage this might cause you could take years to repair.
