I found out my boss has been sabotaging my job applications. What should I do?
now, the work i do is valued much more than $12 an hour (filing zoning permits, variances, etc..) and I think i do a very good job. I have great working relationships with the clients, civic groups, government staff, etc... I even use one of my long term clients as a job reference. in addition, I have travel often on public transport to the client sites, and sometimes walk up to 5+ miles per day.
I now believe the boss is trying to keep me around as long as possible because i am difficult to replace and he doesn't want to pay market rate for a paralegal or associate attorney.
my major is mathematics with a minor in computer science with a 3.15 gpa. So i think my market value is $20+ an hour. i've also interned with a mortgage insurance company last year but i couldn't get a full time offer from them. There is an Ivy league and a large state school where I am so the job market is super competitive
