Re: FW: Request for feedback on my reliability

In addition, maybe I should make something clearer than shines through
in my previous e-mail. Because we've never been in contact before.

I assert that I have never before heard even one official word from
Tommy Hilfiger about why they would either not want to work with me or
have an opinion that I would not be suitable for any kind of work.
Next to that, _also unofficially_ I have never perceived any tension or
spoilt relation with any colleague inside Tommy Hilfiger, ever. I have
worked productively and positively until the morning I was told by my
recruiter not to come into TH offices and not contact TH anymore. Which
is a right my recruiter had.

So if someone actively decided to terminate the work relationship with
me, I do not know who, on what level, even in which organisation, did
this - and what the dynamics were in that decision.
(My recruiter is not exactly held in high regard in this business, which
is something I discovered later.)

That's just for your information.
I realise that I need to live in a world where I am not told things,
because we all have our own professional role. But from my side I'd
rather make the picture clear.

Kind regards,
Roderik Muit.
