Lady PMET with mental illness trying to press on at work despite office bullying

 

Hi Gilbert, 

How are you doing? Have life been good?
 
I started my work with dramatic entrance, with ISO audit coming just only a few days ago.
 
For the first week, I have been staying late until 10pm and working over week ends to  cover up for the ISO audit.
 
As a blur sotong, I made a few mishaps here and there in the workplace and moreover there’s no handover by the previous girl.
 
As a business development executive, I handled multiple roles in sales, marketing and admin.
 
Though my company/school is small, relationships among colleagues are complicated and very political.
 
The boss is a profit-minded capitalist, who seeks to exploit opportunities.
 
The company also imposes heavy penalities for those who are  even late by a minute, and will deduct your pay if you commit any errors.
 
The school recruits a lot of Indian foreign students as well and they comprised  about 80 percent of the population.
 
I try to work hard , work place bullying does occur, and they always try to target the weak, so as a newbie, it is somehow inevitable that I get bullied, I even get a warning letter for repeating the same mistakes!
 
This role will let me become a devil one day………… Nevertheless, I enjoy interacting with people.
 
Hope you are fine and well, and hope you can promote your good work.
 
Singapore really need humanity as staying in the corporate world will make you brutal as time passes by.
 
The suppression of self-expression in the workplace also make me feel less lively at work.
 
It’s understandable  why local business cannot grow much with such intolerable work culture.
 
Hope you won’t find the email boring. I will tolerate my work until it’s enough
 
I try to maintain my stress level as sometimes I can still hear voices in my head.
 
I liked my current role now but whether I can hold onto the job is another issue.
 
I have hard time absorbing information and have a tendency to make blunders.
 
Nevertheless, it’s a choice I have made and I will try to stay as long in this job as possible.
 
I still handled business calls at home because I have a mobile line and it can be a headache.
 
I hope I have the better skills to deal with my people and work. I don’t want to be a failure.
 
Hope my nagging won’t trouble you. I will press on…
 
Regds,
 
Jenny

    Jenny could be working for one of these schools – BMC, FTMS, SIC or Stanfield.

    Here in Melbourne also a lot of such schools which focus on getting ppl PR, some bullshit cookery or hairdressing. Basically it’s to get PR and not to address the skill shortage. Thank god they stopped this loop hole as there are too many unqualified people ruining the market. Fake qualifications, fake experience and fake references. Sheesh, talk about ethics.

    Hey, I don’t think you have mental illness, what’s normal anyway? In Singapore, being abnormal should be considered a badge of honor. I have many friends in places like Hong Kong and Europe who pride themselves on being on the fringe.
