My career has been going downhill.
I got my first “real” job in 2007. For six months, I worked as an HR assistant for a big company in Sofia. Then I had several months off work before I came back to work for the same company as a Recruiter for the sales department; got a nice raise, too.
A year and a half later I was still a Recruiter and there was no indication I’d get promoted.
So I went to work for a reputable recruitment agency as a Junior consultant. My basic pay was lower but I had bonuses for bringing new clients and also for successful employee placement. With bonuses, I earned slightly more than my last job.
I lasted six months and then I quit to start my own business – my own recruitment agency.
