Thank you for this. Your response is absolutely brilliant and sums up everything flawlessly.
When it comes to my industry — I’m appalled and saddened by what we’ve become. The fact that people accept the robotic nature of clicking content into various folders to ensure that partners providing the garbage — remain satisfied with their page views — is beyond my realm of comprehension.
Once I was told that my position was being terminated — I felt a jolt of panic at the idea of losing the steady income — but then I was relieved. I film the movements of what I do in my head — and it’s maddening that I lasted this long.
Also, the people in charge are over-worked and incapable of providing necessary guidance or even support. You’re left to drift and keep up and then when you’re finally told to “get out” — your lasting service is to train the dude they just hired.
