Where to begin. I’m a temporary assistant to 3 marketing reps and the marketing manager. The manager has made it very clear that this is a long-term temporary assignment that will not go permanent. I would need a BA in marketing for that and even then I would need at least 2 to 5 years of experience. I share the position with another temp. She also shares my dislike for the work. It’s tedious, boring, and “bitch work.” The marketing reps are very pretentious and treat us like second class citizens because we’re not educated like them. They pass along all the shitty and annoying tasks they don’t have time to do even if it’s something so simple that’ll take them two seconds.
I’ve been doing this kind of work for 10+ years now and although I don’t have 40 years behind me of shitty jobs, I’m getting fed up with not being good enough to be given a chance to prove that I can do more. I’ve decided to go back to school and earn a degree doing what I love and something that will make me feel fulfilled in my career. Still, that’ll take time and I’ll be stuck doing these degrading jobs until my time comes to do something better.
