I’ve been a freelance Graphic Designer for the past 7 years. Recently someone informed me of a position available at a highly prestigious firm so immediately I took up the offer. The company only used 5 and 6 year outdated Adobe Programs and my usage was pretty current. After 5 days of employment and me completing their design for a deadline they terminated my services without warning while I was suppose to be employed for the next 3 months on work probation. This was my dream job and I feel like I’ve been stripped out of any luck! Being in what I considered a ”hole” for the past few years I thought my luck had finally changed until this happened!!! Idk what to do I’m feeling so unmotivated…. I’m s broken in spirit
Although it is difficult to see right now, this company has actually paid you a compliment Nikki. They were blatantly incapable of completing the design themselves, so they brought in someone with the capability to do. Yes, they have been unscrupulous and they have treat you badly, but take the positives from this experience, and use them to drive you forward. Unfortunately, things like this happen every day, especially to the truly creative people in business, but at the end of the day, their management tactics can only get them so far if they don't have the talent to back it up. Stay strong and don't give up on your dreams, don't strive to be part of someone else's company, run your own, and then blow the others out of the water! If you ever need to talk, please feel free to message me anytime. Take care, TDZ :)
The situation you are facing is really unpleasant, I understand how you feel now, I myself was in such a position. I decided not to give up and try to find the best options. I was helped to find a suitable job on EPAM https://anywhere.epam.com/en , where many employers from abroad are looking for good specialists and offer an adequate salary, as well as safe working conditions.
