The list of permanent hires came out at work. I was not eligible but the silence was deafening. Unlike many of the others I rushed to congradulate two friends who have helped me learn the ropes. I was genuinely happy for them and I was kind to those who did not make it this time . My mentor who is a great guy also was promoted and will be departing soon.
Any sucsess that I have encountered was due to the help of wonderful patient coworkers. There is alot to learn and every day I learn something new. I hope the rest get the spots they wish for.
I wish more people would have been happier for their friends. Yet the natural disappointment and envy is understandable.
