My employment has been terminated.

I was working as a pharmaceutical regulatory affairs associate at Genpharm Inc.

The company only wishes to have people in that position that do not think for themselves, and become cogs in their inefficient machinery. Quite obviously, I didn't fit.

So, this morning, the manager pulled me into her office, and gave me the good word. I could barely manage to hold in the grin-- I instantly felt as if I had taken some sort of drug...

Now I have to do a frikkin' job search, and I will more than likely get the same sort of position... oh, woe is me.

Monday is a dirty, dirty day for management to pull that kind of stuff.

Bright side: if termination was without cause, your new job search will be with the cushion of a severance payment.

If they offer employment counselling take it.

Cheers to new beginnings. If your savings allow it don't accept new employment unless it's a position where you believe ideas and thinking count for something.

Good luck.

sounds like they did you a favour. :)


do you have to look for a job in the same field? maybe you don't necessarily have "qualifications" but i'm sure there's lots of stuff you can do. maybe this is the right moment to point yourself in another direction.

Are you at least going to make off with some good pharmaceutical grade drugs to sell to the highschool kids until you get a new job?

(And I'm nominating Wednesday as the best 'you're fired' day)

I have no savings... yay for me!

And I don't believe there are jobs where ideas and thinking count for something. But I will delude myself into thinking so anyway.

Oh, there are plenty of jobs I could do. Problem is, I communicate like an idiot verbally, so come interview time, I turn into a moronic 12-year old.

In other words, I will get exactly the same position in a different company, and I'll only last 6 months. But hey, that's life, right?

a job that rewards thinking is entrepreneurial


unless your the lead dog the view is always the same


why don't you go into business for yourself ?

What a wonderful idea. Oh, wait... doesn't that take startup money?

A lemonade stand, methinks. That ought to help pay off the $45,000 in student loans.

Ok, in the interest of prying into your personal life:

Did you say anything specific that your manager mentioned? I know you thought all of you co-workers were idiots, I'm just wondering if you happen to mention it to them last week.

if your inventive it can happen, and if i know you you'd never be happy working for someone else.


sure you will have to start small, and will probably not profit much for the first year or so


but in the long run you would get some sort of satisfaction from your job

and isn't that what your looking for ?

I know a guy who's made a machine that converts pop cans into wheelchairs.

Maybe you could get a franchise or something.

I've been quite loud and verbal about how stupid they are for months now.

Little problem I have-- when someone does something stupid, I can't help but call them on it. For instance, the boss while reading over a fasted study asks,"Why did they not give the subjects breakfast?".

Now, that sort of stupidity permeates the company, top to bottom.

condolances would normally be appropriate, but it seems as if you've been waiting for this day for a long time now. i think congratulations are in order! a good kick in the pants can be a great blessing.

best of luck,

I work for a company that does it on the wednesday.

They do that so that it doesn't ruin their weekend.

When it comes down to it.. it sucks to get fired no matter what fucking day it is.

I think.. in some ways.. I rather get fired soon after having weekend fun. Meh...

Sorry to hear about that Timo! But I think you might have fun looking for another job that you actually MIGHT like!

Good luck!

Quite honestly, I don't know what I'm looking for. I know that the job I had isn't for me, and that's all I know.

You should get an award for that post.
