Within less than a week of putting my CV out there, I’ve gotten several call backs.
One of which I was extremely excited about.
I was asked to interview for a marketing position in a small dried goods company. They only dealt in international clients, all of whom spoke English. For this reason, they needed a fluent/native English speaker, particularly one that could help them break into the US market.
Perfect! And my extensive education in food technology was a huge plus! By the end of the interview, they had practically hired me.
But there was one big problem.
One hour by train and a 20 minute walk (including crossing a major road with no cross walk) in a large industrial complex stood between me and this great opportunity. With my limited Turkish abilities, it wasn’t possible.
I really wanted to make it work. I wanted it to happen, but what can I do? The pay wasn’t outstanding, but I feel it was negotiable. The job was exactly up my alley, plus the great benefit of doing all communications from the safety of an office.
An office practically a life time away.
If it wasn’t for that long, creepy walk after the metro… It could have been.
But it can’t.
It’s not you…
