So I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree about 6 mos ago and haven’t been able to find a job. I currently work in retail, which I HATE, but I make enough money to support myself I’ve applied for about 50 jobs and haven’t even received a call. It was really frustrating. I decided to stop applying for jobs that required a bachelor’s and just apply for jobs at companies I thought would be good. Well it worked and I just got hired at a company that I’m really excited to work for, but there are several down sides to the new job. First, its a $1 pay cut. A lot of people think its dumb to take it, but, again, I hate my job and I’m going no where in it. I believe I can work my way up here quickly, and even if I can’t, they give good raises. Right now, I get about a $0.20-0.30 raise each year. The hours suck the new job suck. I’ll more than likely be working 12-8pm or something similar. This is even worse than crazy retail hours. Also, the start date is less than 3weeks before my wedding!!! I don’t think I can really ask for time off either because the training is set up class room style and I don’t want to miss something and not get caught up. There are so many bad things, but I’m still super excited. I’ve only had one job my whole life and I’ve been in it 10 years. I need a change of scenery! I hope I’m not making a mistake. Wish me luck!
