Working alone as an accountant was most likely not meeting her need for human interaction. Tricia found and applied for a job as assistant director in a national chain retail store. She was quickly hired to work alongside 2 other assistant directors, one of whom had more management experience than she did, as well as both full time and seasonal employees. Tricia was highly motivated after training commenced but was not aware of the current state of the store and would become increasingly dis-enchanted over a period of a handful of months.
