I keep oscillating between “everything will be ok, it’s ok to be an administrative assistant” and ” I will go stark raving mad if I have to spend another year, including another six month Siberian cold winter, in this lonely place.”
The thought of throwing myself into the arms of the OSCE again, has even crossed my mind, though not seriously, because they no longer pay their interns.
I’d love to continue working in refugee resettlement, but the shift there is also to greater reliance on unpaid interns.
Ah, I know that it’s difficult – I have had this problem in the past. Refugee resettlement is tough even in great economic climates – and I can only imagine how tough it is in a bad one…Good luck…
Now, see, I was under the impression that every resettlement worker drove a Lexus and bathed in fine wine.
