Since finishing my last review project, I’ve been patiently waiting word on another project, one that will run much longer too to join.
Last week, I was sent by e-mail, a Japanese proficiency test, one much longer and more difficult than other Japanese proficiency tests I’ve taken. So I figure I am on track to start working the following week. Wrong.
In an e-mail yesterday from the project manager, I learned, I am not to be among those slated to join the project. What makes this more stinging is I have turned down other work on the expectation I’d be on this project. So now I am scrambling to find work.
It may just be that in discovery work, former employees of the entity subject to pre-trail discovery, are not allowed on review projects, as this project does involve my former employer.
Anyway, as I heard often in Japanこの世は、そのな甘いもんじゃないよ！
