Hello Bees. I am in a down mood and want to spare Darling Husband my sadness. I’m sure I can find solace among other job searching ladies on here.
My backstory: (If you care to read)
I have a degree in Equine Science from a pretty good school. I got a job two months out of college and seriously, it couldn’t have matched my dream job description more. I would be working with the breed of horses I wanted, on a small farm, as a manager, in charge of two employees, with a friendly boss, living on site with my dog coming to work every day, learning the ins and outs of running a farm on a small scale. Perfect.
It turns out that while I still LOVE my job description and my daily duties, the farm isn’t what I thought it was and I’m basically looking to move on quickly (due to many different reasons). My husband selflessly followed me to this job and allowed me to pursue my dreams. He basically fell into a job he thought he’d despise but ends up loving it and is now third in command of the company. While I’m SO happy for him, this ties us down to our current city and horse jobs around here in general (let alone something that would help my career) are scarce. We are stuck living with a roommate, I am seriously concerned about the direction of our company, and I need to make more money to start paying off some serious loans but I can’t get out.
I don’t know if there are many things more discouraging than a soul sucking job search. Are there other horse bees out there feeling my pain? Anyone else getting down about where they’re headed career-wise? I guess I’m just looking to commiserate and maybe get some pointers. How long have you been looking for a job? What’s the hurdle you have to get over in your industry?
