Work, blah, blah, blah

It's 8:45 am and I'm not at work. Hallelujah! I have a ridiculously stupid training session to attend today, so I won't be making an appearance at work.

Yesterday, the company president took my boss, a coworker and me to lunch. A delicious meal, no doubt, but everything else was nauseating. Watching President interact with Boss was enough to kill my appetite. He adores her. He thinks that the sun shines out of her ass. He doesn't care that she cannot manage, that she makes outrageous, ignorant comments, that she lacks in intelligence and common sense.

President thanked me for "taking so much time" filling out my supervisor review. It gave me some hope. Until yesterday. Nothing is going to change.

It's only mildly disheartening. I know that I need to leave.

My latest plan (has anyone else noticed that I have a new plan biweekly?) is to make an appearance at this job fair tailored to my field. It'd be stupid not to, honestly. The internet job search is obviously not doing much for me.

Here's what makes me uncertain: I know that my internship supervisors (my internship was at a division of my company) have gone to this job fair in the past.

How risky is that?

When you register for the job fair, you have the option of having your résumé automatically distributed to all of the companies represented at the fair. I can't imagine not taking advantage of that. And I can just imagine that my bitch ass ho internship boss sprinting at the company president, waving my résumé above her head.

So what's a girl to do?

It's not like this company is above firing a person for looking at the options out there.

Not even close.

If by some chance your current employer finds out you were at the job fair, react confidently about it. "of course I was, I need to be certain I'm working to my fullest potential, and to do that, I need to be aware of my options" any employer who holds that against you is BAD.

Fuck it. I say go for it. I agree with Amy.

I agree with Amy and Bill. You need to go for it. This is what you need to do for your career and your happiness. You seem miserable in your current situation. You need a change. They've already read your supervisor review and know you aren't satisfied.
