Career ChangeI dont really know the proper way to write this story about needing a job, because i dont need a job...I need and desperately want a career! I want something that i can grow and evolve with. I want something that when i leave to go home I'm fine with taking it with me. I dont want to have headaches or an attitude after i put my 8 hrs in. I know that your not going to love every aspect of your work and i know that your not going to love every job you take. But i want to at least have a "job" I can tolerate thats within my career.
I took a job when i first moved back from college in a field not within my degree and that literally sucked my soul out. From the 1st day of being trained i hated it. But it was with a good company everyone told me and it was a "big kids" job. even though i hated it i stuck with it because its the responsible thing to do. Plus as long as the weekends came and I could afford to go out i thought i could cope. But after a staying a year, receiving a performance award, and 2 pay raises, last month I quit...
I have been looking into what im really passionate about. After talking with people who enjoy their careers, and thinking about my past experiences and interest I want to work with youth again. Ive read and been told if your doing what you enjoy the money will come and honestly right now its just me to support so being content the 40+ hours of week people have to work out weights pay. But i have no clue where to start a job search for careers with kids that dont involve me going back to school right now for teacher degree or social work degree. I worked in a residential facility for intensive treatment for 2 years while in college and my degree is in Mass Media if anyone has any suggestions please let me know
I dont mean to sound whiny or scrambled in my writing, just had to put the thoughts that were swimming around down somewhere
