I've been in my first Oz job for nearly ten months and from time to time get an email from the agency who found me the job showing their latest vacancies. I usually delete without reading but decided to open this one so I could unsubscribe. I noticed the heading of the attachment looked familiar so opened it to find my job being advertised. I am currently on a few days leave so called my boss in Sydney and asked if he was replacing me. He asked for the details of where I saw the ad and said he was only checking the local jobs market and he would call me back. When he finally did today he said he has now decided to close my branch as sales in WA were poor.
Business in all four company branches has been tough and sales have been in decline from before I started and my boss has always said that I would need time to steady things and start to build business, I even brought this up at the interview and was assured he knew it would not be a quick fix.
so now, just as things slow down for Xmas, I find myself looking for a new job. At least I can now look for something decent.
