They promoted 2 people last week. One of them started working there after I did. This isn’t the first time this has happened.

They know I work hard and efficiently and treat everyone with respect. Management always has me training new hires and such. I’m also one of the more experienced video editors there but clearly that has no merit for cliquey office politics.

I want to get out of this negative teenage mediocrity environment.

I’ve been trying to get a better job for a while now and this shit just keeps adding motivation fuel. I’ve been brushing up on my web design skills. Gonna continue those online courses I signed up for recently, learn responsive web design, redo my website and perhaps freelance a bit to build a portfolio so I can apply to web design jobs.
