Whether any of you care, I don't know... and I don't care if you care or not. I am in a pissy mood and I need to vent just a little.
But damn, I'm so sick of my job. I've been working in retail (Crap) sales for two years now.
I mean, this is not a bad job for a 20 year old college student. I make better money than most people my age. I wouldn't be surprised if I got offered a management position sometime in the near future.
But still, it is so lame. I hate people, for one, and it's my stupid job to go up and initiate conversations with these people and sell them **** they really don't need. I really don't give a crap about them.
The bad thing is, I'm actually pretty good at it. There are some people that I could probably get to eat out of my hand... They listen to everything I say, even when it's complete crap and I have no clue what I'm talking about.
Last week I took my first vacation in many months hoping this feeling of dread would go away. Well, I made it back to work on Tuesday and felt the exact same way.
This leads to my dilemma: In my past when I've started feeling this way about a job, it usually doesn't end well.
It's lead to my poor performance and eventual quitting/getting fired.
I nearly got into it with my boss the other day.
However, I've got bills to pay as we all do, so I'm stuck biting my tongue until I can find something new.
I need a little advice here. I'm looking around for job postings, and everything just looks like complete dead-end jobs that require too much time for skill investment. There's always more retail, but I'll just be jumping in the same boat at a different destination.
What do all you college students, or what DID you alumni, do while you were in college that you enjoyed? I'm really just looking for some suggestions. I'm finished with retail, and food services simply doesn't pay enough.
I've been looking for some computer related work, but no luck so far, so that may just need to wait until I get a little more college under my belt.
I've even gone so far as to contemplate joining the military. I mean, there's always room for advancement there for a smart guy with a little work ethic.
Sorry for my ramblings... Just sometimes gotta get it out before it gets out by itself.
