  11. 11. What Other People Have Done…Melissa’s Story “I was working my third year at the front desk at my university. Each year, I had a different boss, and my third one was terrible. He took credit for my work, didn’t respect my schedule, and forced me to work an additional 6 hour [graveyard] shift after I already worked 8 hours. I couldn’t take it anymore. I quit and walked out on the job. Then I emailed all my co-workers to explain it all. I regret the way I ended things, but I’m so glad I left.” Contact Heather at heather@comerecommended.com 11
  12. 12. What Other People Have Done…Jenn’s Story “I joined a startup on a volunteer basis. As their need for me grew, I joined the team, but they never paid me. I grew passionate for the company, but still was never paid. After a few months of intense work, I felt like I was being taken advantage of. The founder agreed to pay me but fell behind on payments. The company ultimately folded and I was left with the mistakes I made. The founder still contacts me, but I’ve learned my lesson.” Contact Heather at heather@comerecommended.com 12
