Loreen immediately went to Doris’s office when she received the call. Charlie grabbed the chance and quickly went downstairs.
He saw Claire walking out, looking worn out and weary, as soon as he reached his car.
She was exhausted from the heavy workload of the hotel project. She said helplessly, “I have too much work on my hands, 24 hours are not enough.”
Charlie said heavy-heartedly, “How about dividing some of the works to other people? Or maybe just don’t do it.”
“No way,” Claire said, “I was appointed as the director only recently, I need to work hard to strengthen and solidify my foundation at the company, otherwise, my cousin will swoop in whenever he sees a chance.”
Claire was extremely annoyed when Harold’s disgusting look appeared in her mind. The bothersome man kept going against her and always did things detrimental and inimical.
On the way home, Claire closed her eyes to rest while Charlie focused on driving without disturbing her.
Meanwhile, in Doris’s office.
Doris informed Loreen of the new appointment, which made Loreen a little surprised and bewildered.
It hadn’t been long since she was appointed as the administrative director, and now she was transferred to the sales department. Why?
The explanation that Doris gave her was, “I think you are very capable and talented, it is a waste of your talent to work in the administrative department. I took a second look at your resume. You have the background of business management and marketing as your degree, that’s why I think sales are the most suitable position for you. Besides, sales and marketing are more important to the company than any other division. I can assure you, if you commit to a good job in the new position, you’ll have a better prospect.”
Truth be told, Doris wasn’t bluffing.
The sales position was indeed much more important than the administration.
The sales department was an important department that generated income and revenue for the company, whereas the administration was more of a housekeeper of the company where it was in charge of trivial matters.
Loreen didn’t give it much thought nonetheless. She felt that if she could perform excellently in the sales department and bring actual profits to the company, the chairman might notice her eventually!
So, it was great news for her!
The first thing Loreen did after coming out of Doris’s office joyfully was to call her good friend Claire.
As soon as the call was answered, she said excitedly, “Claire, I’m the sales director now!”
“Really?” Claire sat up, apparently happy to hear the news as well. “That’s really great! You should be working in the sales department from the beginning, it’s an overkill for you to work as the administrative director! Now you have more room to showcase your capabilities, I’m sure you’ll be able to yield something great soon!”
“Hehe!” Loreen blurted in her gleeful tone, “What about we have dinner together later to celebrate? Invite Charlie too.”
Claire said in an exhausted tone, “Frankly, we’re arriving at our home soon, besides, I’m really worn out today. We’ll take a rain check on the celebration, okay?”
Loreen knew that Claire was busy with the project lately, so she quickly said, “Of course! You’ve been working too hard recently, with all the meetings and overtime. Go home and rest, we’ll celebrate when the project sails smoothly!”
“Okay,” Claire said, “Once I’m done with the workload, let’s get together and have fun!”
Loreen chuckled. “Deal!”
Loreen felt slightly dejected when she ended the call.
She didn’t have many friends in Aurous Hill, her only friend was Claire.
Now that she was transferred to the position of sales director, she was given a much bigger stage to prove herself, but she couldn’t find a person to celebrate her achievement with.
Just as she sighed, disheartened, her phone rang suddenly.
It was from Harold!
