Ok. So this happened, again. I am really bad at quitting jobs, I usually get nervous, don’t know what to say or how to act. Anyways, I was working twice a week for a CUNY college and it got extremely crazy because besides having to work at the office, I had to meet with 2 mentees weekly and submit time-sheet and log-sheet every single week.
CUNY pays students a ridiculous salary ($9.85/h before taxes!!!) So, it is basically less than $9 dollars per hour after your taxes are deducted.
I sent a Facebook message to my boss and I told her I was quitting because I am very busy at Baruch, which is true. I am a full time student there and it requires a lot of work! My assignments are extremely long and after finishing it, I have no energy for anything else…
The other 2 jobs I had at CUNY previously I quit in a different manner:
Call center: I went to my boss office and I told her I had to quit to prepare myself for an internship (I got an offer to be a scholar at the Federal Reserve Bank at that time).
Assistant to the Director of the CUNY Service Corps program: I walked into her office and told her that was my last day. (I know it sounds horrible) but a week notice didn’t make sense in this case because the college was going to be closed on the following week… Today I would have done differently.
I also worked as Welcome Ambassador, but this job had a short term contract so I didn’t need to quit. lol but I refused a second offer to work as an Ambassador again.
I feel much lighter and now I freed some hours on my week. Oh! I bought a desk too, so I can study at home 🙂
See you soon,
