I am not exactly sure where to start, but I am an unemployed college educated woman in need of some financial help. I had been working a contract position for the past 3 years and left for a permanent position at a different company. I was told great things about the company and the benefits. Upon arrival at the new job I found out it had all been a lie. They lied about the work hours, the PTO policy and what the job entailed. The person I reported to was in another state, I was the only person in my department in the office and there was no training nor onboarding process. For the two weeks and 2 days that I was there I went to everyone I could trying to figure out how to do my job but with no success. My boss never showed up to meet me and Human Resources told me since the position was new they didn’t know what I should be doing and that I should figure it out on my own. I was fired at the beginning of my third week and the reason that was given was ‘we hired you prematurely, we are not really sure what to do with this role’.
I don’t have any savings and this now puts me in a horrible situation. I have always held a job and have always done my best to be my best in whatever role I had. I was shocked that they would sell me on this dream, know that I left a job only to fire me 2.5 weeks later because they didn’t have it together. I have a mortgage, student loans, a car payment, amongst other bills. Unemployment is up in the air because I was only there less than 3 weeks and I left the previous job voluntarily.
Fortunately I never stopped looking for jobs, but haven’t at this point had anyone reach out yet for any interviews. Just reaching out for help because I don’t have parents to go to and I’m truly nervous/scared/stressed about where this has left me financially and what I am going to do to keep my home. I am behind on everything and close to foreclosure at this point. I am trying hard not to beat myself up over this because I truly tried my best to figure out what they wanted me to but it was almost like a set up because NO ONE would help me. Even after 2 weeks I didn’t have access to their system. The entire 2nd week, my boss never reached out to me. What more could I have done?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
