Eight years ago, John Stenger moved to New York City and landed a dream job with a large book publisher. After only eight months, Stenger was fired.
“My supervisor had a very strict understanding of what an office worker was supposed to do. That meant never being more than five minutes late unless there was a train excuse. I was not allowed to have a single typo in an email and that was impossible for me.”
Stenger remembers the last thing that was said in the exit interview.
