I hate my job! Or do I?

Thanks Peaches!
I am currently filling out apps. I have a couple of pretty good leads. So *fingers crossed*

Good luck for the job hunt, bakergirl!

I can say with absolute certainty that I hate my job :D

*sigh* not any good news. Im waiting to here back from a couple of places but the other places I've tried either aren't hiring full time or not at all. I am still collecting apps. :?

Any more news yet?

New job sounds OK - sort of an business management type thing - will be doing HR stuff, risk management, managing the admin staff and financey stuff.


:rock: (yup, I'm being sarcastic)

Should leave plenty of mental room for thinking about more intersting things :D

Woaw, sounds pretty intense. More challenging, I'm guessing? Is this the kind of thing you wanted to do, or is it just a way of getting out from under your current evil boss? And is it at the same company?

Mainly the latter.

It sounds like there's more of a mix of things - luckily I'll have to some staff to do some of them for me. Still feel uncomfortable with asking people to do things though:roll:

It sounds fairly easy, for the same pay. Think there's a homeworking option as well some days, so I can continue in my preferred lifestyle ofslobbing round the house in pyjama bottoms :D

I'm terrible at telling others what to do as well. I've had an intern all summer and it's made me so uncomfortable telling him what to do. Half the time I don't know what to do myself. :?

I'm working from home right now. I LOVE having that option!!! That's why I'm on here so much today... :oops:

Zebra, I hope it turns out well!

Ok, back to work for me... :type: I've got some SERIOUS deadlines coming up. :shock: :nails:

I used to have an 'emergency spreadsheet' to open up when I saw anyone senior/sneaky approaching.

Nope, I'm never sure what to do either....and always a bit worried incase they refuse to do it :roll:

Aw, there, there, Suze. There, there, there, there, there :goodman:

I wouldn't say I'm having a horrible week, but I am starting to feel slightly uncomfortable about quitting the job. Not because I regret the decision itself but rather because I haven't told everyone, and I don't know how to... :worry: Tomorrow there's a tri-weekly (is that a word?) meeting of the heads of all the departments and I know my leaving will be on the agenda. I feel like such a quitter, and I don't want to talk about my reasons for leaving either :roll: (I don't see my coming clean about my hate for the countryside going down too well with the rest of the country dwellers...)

To top this off I have to present the plans of the interpretation department to the board afterwards. Horror of horrors... My heart is telling me to pull a sickie, my head is telling me that I need to be a pro (and I'll need to use my boss a referee for later, which in turn means I'll have to be a saint for 7 more weeks :halo: )

I'm looking for a new job now. I had forgotten how much I loathe this process too. :worry: ATM it seems that I get to choose between applying for a job I kind of don't want in my home town or applying for a job I really want abroad. Unfortunatley the chances of getting the jobs I don't want are pretty slim, and getting an interview abroad seems even more unlikely :P

Rant over :lol:

Oh, don't pull a sickie biscuit. Better to get it over with, I promise (and as uncomfortable as you feel about it now, you'll feel even worse after). As for the explaining to others, can you just say 'for personal reasons'? Are these the type to pry? Barring that, can you just lie?!? (My young son is terribly ill and we need nearlby access to hospitals and top medical care... :boohoo: )

I'm sorry for you that you couldn't make the job work out since you seemed to really like it (at least, last time I checked ;) ). I'm STILL trying to find something I want to do, because it seems that everytime I find a job I think I want to do, it turns out I don't really want to do it! It's starting to drive me kind of batty. My latest 'calling' is to work for some kind of environmental cause. At least that's the conclusion I came to with my career counsellor. I just don't have the energy to start that search as I probably would need to, er, actually know something about some environmental issues. I just can't deal with working for 'the man' anymore! :hammer:

Hope you can find something biscuit. You're brave to look overseas. My whole life (practically) I've wanted to move away for work but have never had the guts.

What's this quitting crap? There's no reason to remain in a place that doesn't make you happy. Don't pull a sickie. You'll regret not don't the right thing. Do it right and you'll sleep at night. :wink:
