So, I’ve now been living back at home for three weeks, back to the same job I’ve had since I was 16 and spent the best part of the day training newbies up. Newbies who are 16, in their first year of college and their first job. So why is it that I’m still there??
Don’t get me wrong I’m not knocking the fact that I have a job, god knows I’m thankful for that. It keeps my topshop addiction at a healthy level and allows me to look forward to the upcoming week of madness that will be Glastonbury 10!
My point is, whilst working in a little well known establishment that old people seem to generate towards, often I get told, ohh there’s plenty of jobs when you graduate, you wont be stuck here forever, what you doing after university?
Well at the moment it seems nothing. If you don’t live in the capital, journalism jobs are far and wide. So what’s next?
Carry on in shop work, move into admin, hell I’ve even contemplated applying for a teaching assistant job, don’t know why, I hate kids. It seems this crazy period of transition from student to ‘grown up’ makes you do very odd things and I dread to think what I will be applying for next week, come Monday morning.
Just hope im not still in my current job in another years time, training more newbies.
“What do you do then? Ermmmmmm”
