When isn't a good job?
I should be very happy,
because I've found a job that pays good
money and everything in my life is wonderful,
but I'm not happy with the job and I've
only been in it for a month and a half.
In this job, I'm supposed
to be in a greater position of responsibility
than I've ever been and in past jobs I've
been used to knowing what I'm doing and
getting on with it.
But here I spend most
of my time sitting around waiting to be
told what to do. I've never experienced
this before as I'm very independent and
I have to ask if there's
anything I can be do, all the time. I feel
like I'm wishing my life away and I feel
like a child.
I actually know exactly how you feel;
let me tell you, and perhaps it'll help
you (Perhaps not!). I've been there.
My boredom threshhold is low, I like a
challenge at work. I took on a real exciting
new job that turned really boring, really
quickly - the "mngmnt" just changed
priorities, and all the exciting stuff
So, like you, well paid, good working
conditions, no challenge. I made the decision
within weeks; "I shall leave, as soon
as a decent opportunity arises". And
What I must not do, I realised at the
time, was something that would damage my
employer (and me on the rebound) or something
that would damage me - like leaving before
another job came along.
It wasn't easy - it won't be for you,
but all I can advise is don't do anything
hasty - it's much easier to get a better
job when you have a good job.
