09Among Others


I landed a contract role as a customer support rep

    • with zero people skills
  • at an education startup

It was my first taste of working at a tech company

The people were smart, funny, and great to work with

I worked there maybe 6 months before their bubble burst

they shuttered completely

  • the same day they announced it to 50 employees
    • “We tried to keep the lights on as long as we could”

sent us all home
wondering what went wrong
