They promise Silke training and opportunities for promotion, and she always gives her best to no reward. She has done data entry and taken calls for about every industry. Instead of being able to see her 'butts in seats' jobs for what they are and adjusting her expectations, she soldiers on, overworking herself fruitlessly.
Her parents were never really present in her life and kicked her out as a teenager, so she only knows self-reliance and perseverance, odd skills for office work. Her quiet, unassertive nature makes her easy to overlook, and while she has a calming presence, she hasn't had a genuine friendship since high school. She is rigidly professional at all times, afraid of offending someone. She's hopeful her meticulously organized faxes will someday impress her manager into letting her sit in on the dev ops meetings and lead her to a real job.
