So You Got A New Job, Huh?
Set-back No. 1. At the end of my first week, I received a resignation. This was someone who I was looking forward to working with. This individual explained that he/she had been unhappy in the position for the last three months and that it had nothing to do with me.
Unfortunately, I now had a hole in my staff that would have to be filled -- and that took take effort which could have been channeled elsewhere.
