= vaguely scary.
I can't remember probate! and I have no idea if i'm being offered (potentially) a good salary or not.
I'm trying to get a career type job rather than a I just need some money please job for the first time now. I don't like it.
I liked that....
I'd probably still be there. But I'm not sure if that is depressing or not
is you know its about the long term and as such motivation is a bitch, endurance. Im at 18months without a break from 9-5 right now, longest ive ever worked straight (yeah i know poor me) and its becoming a real chore.
five years of constant work now and previous apathy has resulted in accountancy. Not good.
ever having one of those.
since I was 16, though in my first year of uni I didn't work at term-times, but worked when I went home on holidays/some weekends at the same place.
The first real job is a big step though- working during the week is knackering! But on the plus side, you really enjoy your weekends more.
withing 5 months, my sister is a teacher and everyone i know who has become one has become like a old person, due to the adult nature and responsibility in the job.
a Probate Advisory job.
It's 17 k which sounds GOOD. I have no idea if it is.
I want to move to LDN though in a few months.
It's times like this where I don't feel Grown-up at all.
is dont be suckered by salary, not that this is high but theres always a reason a job pays well or doesnt. Finding the balance between enjoyment and £ is key.
also dont jump to london...way shit up first its like a mad rush for grad and it might not be right for you.
and probably live reasonably well too. It isn't a terrible starting wage (17-18k is what I'm looking at) but I can't imagine you'd want to be on it for too long
so 17k will be slightly better
at the moment.
I am really clueless in some things.
I've not had a 'proper job since I graduated 18 months ago.
I only graduated last Summer. But for some perspective, my rent is £360 a month, and after tax I only earn £960 a month. I've made no progress getting out of student debt, but I've not got into more of it and I have a reasonable life (buying stuff, going out etc). Still a shit wage though, can't wait until next Friday
Oh man, I REALLY need a new job. :''''(
from my local William Hill today.
I've no idea what goes on in bookies and have fuck all apprehension of gambling.
With any luck they'll accept me. I hope so I can't rememebr the last time I could afford anything!
to be a first step on the road to a glorious career in the meeja, but now I'm not sure I can be arsed and I don't know what else I could do in the way of a career.
I should probably have anticipated this before I spent three years getting a degree, really.
