So a brief recap: I hate my job. I hate it enough that it seriously causes me physical anxiety and stomach aches and makes me feel like an all-around lowsy human being. Lately I’ve been moody, withdrawn, anxious, emotional and a general wreck because I am so unhappy here. I am actively looking for work and have sent out at least 200 applications/ resumes with very little luck. I have had precisely 3 interviews. The first one I felt like I knocked it out of the park and would at least get a second interview. Not so much, they hired internally. Second one was for a sales position, and I was offered a second interview (scheduled this week) but I’m not too keen on sales. I might revisit that, though, if I am offered a position. The third (last Tuesday) was for a job that I am really crossing my fingers for- it is something I know I will be good at and enjoy doing, a friend of mine recommended me to the recruiter, and it is a fantastic company to get in with…but I haven’t heard anything yet and I am going bonkers!
So here’s where I need your help. It isn’t even 10:30 am and I feel like I am going to BLOW MY STACK today at someone. I have no patience for all the nonsense I have to put up with here, and no desire to be especially nice to anyone today either. That is sooo against my nature that it kinda scares me a little. I am always nice to people. I enjoy people. But todaty? Not so much. What I really want to do is write my resignation letter, stoll out those doors and never look back but that just isn’t an option, seeing how I am somewhat attached to that whole “pay your rent and bills” idea. Please help me get through the day, bees! Help me avoid strangling the next idiot who tries to tell me how I should be doing my job (I am the regional lead for my position, and I was asked by the national director to take this role. I train everyone else on how to do my job for crying out loud!! I think I know what I’m doing!!)
Anyone else in the boat with me? Let’s help each other row to shore, ok?
