I need a new job…
I’ve only had my current job for a little over a month, but I’m becoming so depressed with it. I’m doing something I enjoy doing (writing), but the actual work itself isn’t something I want to be doing, mainly because it’s so meaningless. I work so hard, but at the end of the day I feel like I haven’t accomplished much, which is a very depressing realization.
Part of it stems from the fact that my colleagues care so little about the work we’re doing, and they almost go out of their way to give as little effort as possible. I almost feel as if some of that is starting to rub off on me and make me care even less, too. The fact that I’m only making an hourly salary despite having obtained my master’s in December just makes me more upset. I mean: I know, I know — you shouldn’t expect a good job right off the bat out of college. But I have two years of experience in related fields from my undergrad years (I took a post-graduate internship and another position after my bachelor’s, too).
The only current upside is that I may be making some good business contacts, but I’m not even sure of that.
