So then...

About Me

Welcome to my blog. My pen name is Eva James. I'm an aspiring writer paying the bills working as a legal secretary. Bullied by my boss in 2008, I looked for another job but the recession hit. Feeling trapped, I started this blog. Trevor Griffiths, legendary theatre, TV and film writer said at the outset, "I like the writing a lot: smart, cool, placed. If you were prepared/able to take your prick of a boss on, you'd marmelise him." I was unaware back then that it would catalogue one of the most extreme cases of workplace bullying in the UK. I've found another job, but am subject to a gagging order. I'm still blogging, of course. Just don't tell the lawyers!

Workplace Bloggers Anonymous

I’ve been accepted on a PGCE teacher training course this September!

My secretarial career is coming to an end! WHOOP WHOOP!  You can imagine the quiet Mexican wave being performed in firms of local solicitors.

Want to know the best part? I’m not actually going to be teaching in schools. Nope. In 2013 I’ll be teaching adults who need to improve their skills for the jobs market. Now, I know what you’re thinking, BBTB will immediately have to rename her classes ‘Workplace Bloggers Anonymous’.

Shame on you, cynics! I shall teach my students to master Twitter first.

I’m kidding! Just look what blogging and tweeting did for my secretarial career. It’s thanks to that I must radically improve my own skills for the jobs market. But outside school, it’ll be business as usual for Eva James - especially if it’s business as usual for UK employers.

Very best
