Yes. I’ve had it where I am right now. I won’t go into depth as the length of my dissastifaction of my job covered in my previous posts 2 months back and to this date it’s still within me. I’ve been low on and off over the past weeks and I’m wasting my energy and time here. I’m deep down miserable and I know that I need change which is why I am studying my degree (with a possibilty to study extra) plus seeking new jobs not related to what I am in atm which leads to below..
I did interview for a part time role (bookings role) last week but although I didn’t get that job, I’m on the waiting list which is still better than ‘unsuccessful’ :). This would be my fourth time out of the five working years but it can’t be guaratneed that a position will pop up in the next 12 months. Key is to keep on applying. I’v applied for a few more in the past week and I have one lined up after the long holiday. Have yet to hear from the others but I know that 3 I won’t get a call back.
It sucks when you’re the only person who is available to cover the front and aren’t allowed off on Fridays and be around in the afternoon. It sucks when you’re in a place for way longer than you expect and knowing health records has high turnover rate. I wonder why I am here -rolls eyes-. It sucks when you’re skills are best suited to other positions, (policy, research, health promotion..), your current job is stagnant and are no longer interested in pursuing any more opportunities in the place. It sucks when people are chasing after the boss after numerous times or when callers call about a query that is totally not relevant to the scope of the role. I totally no longer enjoy my role. It sucks when you’re study leave hasn’t been approved at all this year. It sucks when your role is not going to change -sigh sigh sigh- unless i make the change (see above). I haven’t been applying much over the past year but this year has been my turning point. This year may be the time to go for me as I’ve applied for a heap of positions in the past two weeks and will continue. Unfortantely I havent been offered anymore exposure outside of my role which frustrates me. In fact that I may be showing signs of resentment to this job. Anyways, enough said.
That’s my thoughts atm… 6 months of this year to go and opening up to part time may mean a higher chance of me securing a positon. Time will tell..
Anyways Over and out!
