A girl in the company, who started not long after me, recently put in her two weeks. I'd heard through the grapevine that she hated the transfer the company made her take (from a job at the company's corporate office, where I started working, to another building where she served in a role not unlike mine) a few months back and that she'd been looking for something new.

I wasn't surprised when I heard she was leaving. I was happy for her, even.

But I nearly swallowed my tongue when I learned that she'd taken a position with the company I interviewed with in the fall.

Nothing like starting off your Monday morning with a slap in the face.

A feeling of worthlessness is settling down around me.

Keep in mind that she may take that job and end up hating it, too. Or that she might be right for that job, but you might have hated it in the long run.

I know you've been frustrated with your job for awhile, but I believe we are where we are for a reason. The right opportunity will come along (I know, those are yucky words when you're in the thick of it.)

They may have been looking for something different during the search where they hired her than they were looking for when you interviewed. I hope that makes sense. Just resolve to work that much harder at finding something more fulfilling.

Oh A, it is too early in the work week to start feeling worthless. Hang in there girl, corporate life is sh!t wherever you go, trust me!!
