I was fired last year and it was the best thing that could’ve happened. I recalibrated my priorities both professionally and personally. I’m working roughly half as many hours in a different type of role and a much happier overall

Congrats for being in a better place! Just wondering though, how did you talk about being fired during interviews?

I almost got fired from EJ. Resigned before it got that bad. Found a new firm that’s a much better fit

I found a great mentor at Principal. It’s less about the firm and more about that mentor. Jones didn’t say a peep when I left. Once you take a step back, EJ isn’t planning. It’s selling
