i'm working for this little company in the city of london and i used to like the job(i'm an offices jr) the lowest of the lows

its in insurance(underwritting IFA) very very dull!, i don't want to stay in insurance because i can't see myself working in an office for the rest of my life

But the thing is if i leave what do i do? i have no idea or clue as to what i want to do with my life(sad i know)

its a rite bitch!, the money really good where i am (i think) and i'm only 18

Also i got a feeling my boss are going to have a word with me or maybe even firer me?!? <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    You helped me so I am gonna help me!! Right.. so the money is good.. pick up your work a little bit and try to find another job doing what you want to do.. if you do quit is there anything you can fall back on? Are you skilled at anything? How easy is it going to be for you to find a job and do you actually need this one?

    Okay so there's no point staying in a job that you don't like ... however you don't want to cut off your nose to spite your face now do you?!? You need to sit down and think about what you can see yourself doing for the rest of your life and then work out how to go about getting this particular job. In the meantime, buck up your ideas at work and save a bit of money up. That way, if you do find that you need to return to school/college/etc then you've got some funding behind you.

    Go and do something you want to do, you only have one life, don't waste it. Money isn't everything.

    You spend on average about 8.5 hrs a day at work, so make sure you do something you are happy with !! if your relationship with a partner wasnt right you would change it, so d othe same with ya job !! Money isnt everything, it is more important to do something you enjoy.

    Okay, i dont know how long you've been working at your job, but if its good pay stick at it for the meanwhile while keeping an eye out for more interesting offers. The aim of this is to show that you can stay in a job for a considerable amount of time, because the impression that i get from prospective employers is that they like to see that people stay in their jobs for a reasonable amount of time as recruitment itself is a time consuming and expensive process.

    let us know what you finally decide <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
