I can’t wait to go fulltime on freelance…</o>
Right now I work at a publishing company. For some reason I have three bosses, and also have to oversee our magazine dept. I NEVER get heads up on ads, catalogs, etc, and always have to bust my butt getting the fargin’ thing done. Just had to do a 48 page catalog in two days, along with a mailer and an ad. </o>
Today—no different. Got pulled away by one boss to move boxes of books, then yelled at by other boss for neglecting the new catalog. Worked on catalog, got 6 pages of new products done only to be told to change formats. “No problem,” they said. “You can just cut and paste.” I explained that you can’t just cut and paste into new fonts, etc, you have to go back through and re-apply the style sheets and stuff. And then was told that I already was informed of the style change yesterday. Check e-mail. Nope. Well, I guess I wasn’t paying attention well enough, because when I asked yesterday about the format, I was told that the format was the one from last year, which I went with.</o>
Must go get beer or something. Cigarettes aren’t helping.</o>
Why is it that almost ALL people I’ve done freelance for have been happy and grateful, but the place I work for is always super demanding?!!? Well, to be fair, not always like that, but seems like most of the time it’s like that.</o>
</o>Luckily, I should be able to go full freelance soon.
