Long time no see

Hello all,

It’s been a while since the last time I posted something. Apologies to my only follower (Hola Lau!!). Things got a bit hard over here. The law firm where I used to work downsized. My last day of work was September 30th. Before downsizing there were 32 attorneys (6 of them, women). After the cut, there are 28 attorneys (3 of them women… 2 interns and 1 junior associate). Figures are pretty bad, right? In order to leave behind any bad feeling or thought, I won’t discuss this issue in depth.

Although the news was hard to handle, it didn’t surprise me. The economy is really messy in Mexico…. and there’s still gender discrimination. Gladly, I’m part-time professor, thus I have at least one source of income.

Being unemployed is like a nightmare, but during these hard times I found the long-awaited turning point. Since my college years, I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to know at the entrance gate of a HUGE & SEXY thing (meaning an international public organization or large transnational company).

I’m not asking for a position at an international organization or large transnational, nooo… I’m wishing for an opportunity to sit down at the negotiating table. I’d like to listen to them and to be listened. Afterwards, we (HUGE & SEXY thing + me) will be in a good position to decide if we’ll be good teammates or not.

It’s so frustrating to be rejected before actually being listened or tested…. wiack!!

Well, folks… I’m sitting at the negotiating table this Wednesday December 2nd, 2009. Wish us luck!!
