I'm having a bit of an existential crisis (sorry guys) and I want some suggestions about how to fix it plz.
Basically, I really need a new job. My current one is *fine*, but I've been here for nearly five years, have learnt everything I can, and I'm rather bored of it. I thought when I started this job, that I wanted to stay in it, that I'd make it my career, so about four years ago I started a distance learning masters, which I *need* in order to be promoted / get a job as a professional. I'm nearly done now, but entry-level professional posts are very few and far between. I went for a perfect job internally, but was unsuccessful. This has obviously knocked my confidence somewhat, and has left me questioning whether I want to stay in this profession. I have applied for quite a few jobs and have had zero interviews apart from the one internal.
On top of that, I want to move, I don't really enjoy the town I live in at all. There's nothing much going on here. My boyfriend (whom I live with) works in Oxford, and he's having the same thoughts re: getting a new job. Moving to London is an obvious choice, but again, planning a simultaneous move is going to be very difficult, and I'm not having any luck with the jobs I've applied for so far. I don't even know how to begin looking elsewhere / changing career path.
And on top of this, I've discovered I'm really quite lazy. I should be constantly applying for stuff and trying to move. But I've not been doing that. Gaaah. Help me DiS, HELP ME CHANGE MY LIFE.
(Okay, so not really an existential crisis, but maybe it made you click on the thread, right?)
