Thi sis my life in a post. 

 

I dont have a degree so I am VERY lucky to have a job with a great company andd awesome benifits not to mention the starting pay is over what I would have made if I had finished my Degree. 

 

But, I have NO intrest and the feild and since I am newish (under a year) I dont have a ton of work and the work I do have I find my self finishing very quickly. 

 

 

 

I am so bored and the work is so easy that at the end of the day i find myself drained just from trying to find somthing to do to fill my head. And I just want to veg when I get off. It makes no sense and I hate it. 

 

 

 

But since I dont have my degree or a year of experence I can not move into a more intresting postion. 

 

 

 

 

 

I hate life some days

I understand

I had an administrative assistant job right after I graduated and I HATED it.  So boring, nothing to do, and when I had things to do they were the most boring, uninteresting, unchallenging, stupid crap ever.  And it paid complete crap.  And to top it off there were quite a few bitchy women working there.

Ugh I hated that place.

I totally understand. I was bored out of my brain at my old job. Eventually I got reprimanded for using the Internet too much for non work-related things (totally my bad, I shouldn’t have done it) and that was the wake up call I needed to quit and find something else. 

I’m sure you’re keeping your eyes open for another job, but I wanted to offer my sympathy – I know how utterly draining and depressing it is.

@Ibblet:  I feel ya. I’m a secretary, but my boss says I do the work of an AA. I get paid well but I sit on my ass all day and surf the bee. I’m desperately trying to find a new gig that uses the Master’s Degree I am close to finishing.

OOPS, meant this post to be a reply to OP.

I feel the same way some days.

My job was very enjoyable and stimulating, until all the work I was doing (and doing well, mind you) went to a guy who was transferred into my group. I don’t really understand why that happened – plus, I got a promotion right after it, but I’m doing less work than when I started here. It’s confusing to me!
I haven’t done much about it because I don’t really understand what happened, but plan to ask about it during my review this year.

In the meantime I am not very motivated at work. I get my work done, but could be much more efficiant if I felt that it was appreciated.

I think the trick for you might be to try and start making connections in the field you wanted to get into in the first place! Connections are a good first step to any career path.

@cruziiq:  I was only there 1 year!  I did a few things related to what I do now (and by related I mean barely related but enough to help me get my current job by streching the truth a little bit).
