I work for an event planning company, so the holiday season is really busy. We don’t get to spend as much time as we’d like with our families, as we are constantly working events. But that’s the nature of the business. Last year we all received holiday gifts from the owner – a book about how to plan events efficiently and effectively. Was she trying to tell us we weren’t doing our jobs right? There wasn’t even a card attached. A friend of mine works for another event company in town. Her boss gave each of them a bonus for working so hard during the high season and an additional 3 days of PTO to make up for the time they had to spend away from their families working events. Jealous doesn’t even describe how I felt. I’ve asked my friend to keep an eye out for openings at her company. My resume is fully updated and ready to go!
