I quit my job last year in the medical diagnostic industry where I was global product support manager. With that company I managed a team of 7 engineers, was a regional sales support/product manager in UK, did training for customers and service engineers and did strategic marketing over a period of 18 years. Prior to that I was a medical technologist working in the clinical laboratory for 18 years. I am now trying to find a low stress job with medical benefits in Myrtle Beach, SC area but seem to be hitting dead ends every time I apply for positions here. I don't seem to be able to position myself for jobs I know I am capable of, but employers most likely think I am over qualified for or because I have no specific experience for the job. I have many talents including project management skills, organizational, leadership, writing and computer. How do I market these non medical diagnostic skills to get into a position that is not in the medical field? Any advice is helpful.
I got my dream job offer. The only catch is it doesn't start until the beginning of April. The other issue is that my company is known for immediately cutting the benefits of anyone who says that they're leaving. I love my manager and want to give him as much time as possible to find replacement, but I also can't afford to lose benefits for the next month and a half. Is there any compromise?
The day i quit
Before being hired by the former manager, i informed them that i had some health issues. I was told they understood..however when i couldnt come in amd called hours ahead of when i was scheduled..i was still told to come in plus a doctors note and then before i had quit...the manager tried to guilt me into staying...telling me he had a cancer patient who could be there working. About how i should be..even though he was aware of my medical issues which caused me physical complications a times.
My Boss Retracted my Job Offer
I was so excited to switch over to another department after being overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated. My new position had the same benefits, but with better pay, great hours, and there was also a balance in the workload. I gave my two weeks notice to my supervisor and did all the prep work for my fellow coworkers. On my last day, I got a call from my future supervisor, that the offer has been retracted due to my current supervisor explaining I am not qualified for the position, but would gladly take me back to remain working in my current position. I found out my supervisor is known to sabotage people leaving the department. So I took it to HR, with documents and anything I could use as proof against her accusations. Though I did not get the job offer back, I did get another interview and was able to move to another position.
I quit because I felt like there was no future where I was at.
So after 6 years of the same day in day out grind and the massive disrespect from my "superiors" on a daily basis, I quit, I do not have another job lined up just yet but I still feel better than I have in years. like a million ton weight has been taken off my shoulders.
3 Important things I learned from QUITTING my job
I hated my job, my life, myself so it was time for a change. If you are unhappy simply take charge of your life because after all, it is YOURS. I learned this 1- Make things better for yourself because we only get one life to live! Take long walks, smile, laugh, spend time with your family, do the things that make YOU happy. 2- Find a job and surround yourself with people that care about you and appreciate all that you do. Remember that you work hard and deserve good things. 3- Don’t stay at a job that you hate. Yeah the $$$ may be good, but it’s just NOT worth it. Good jobs are sometimes hard to come by, but they are out there!
Why I left #MaxEnterpriseInc ...
I didn't meet my employer face to face and I didn't receive my correct pay I still have my last check which I could not cash at the bank or anywhere else, a lot of check cashing places wouldn't cash their checks stated they owed them money...
My #Xerox/Conduent advice
This was a terrible place to work. The manager were very good, with one notable exception, but the horrible support, low pay, and continuous barrage of angry customers takes it's toll. 1/3 of the managers quit within a 1 week time frame and that is never a good sign. They said they were working on improving things, but they were saying that the entire time I worked there (1 1/2 years) and things didn't improve much at all.
