Finished a project today, but I can't shake the idea of wanting a new job (ok, new career). I should be plenty happy to be in the position I am in, but the gratitude is just not there. I feel like a miserable shmuck.

I might do that if I was in your shoes.

Still unsure. I have been stalking their website, social media, and shop for few days. I concluded that the business is really bad. I didn't find a customer or review. They don't even have a signboard in their shop. It's a custom phone case shop btw.

I thought about the shady way too, but it could further damage my resume. I have not sent a reply yet. I'm going to discuss it with my family again.

Anyway, many thanks Seesaw.

Always a good idea to discuss with your family.

I rejected the offer a week ago. I saw so many warning signs. My family didn't think they will be able to survive.

I'm just getting 2 replies from my applicant. No interview invitation yet. I hope I get one soon.

I decide to take a break from job searching. I feel wear out over this problem and other relationship problem.

Love this thread and new to the site...
Work is my problem most of the time and feeds my anxiety/depression. I'm insecure about my abilities and generally do the minimum to get by which leads to more anxiety. Oddly, I've been promoted several times in recent years and am a senior exec. Procrastination, work avoidance, surfing the web and chatrooms consume most of my day. Could be self sabotage to create the storm my life needs. My counterpart at work just gave his notice so I feel like the last man standing. I have no idea how I'll handle my job and his...

I did not get the invitation from those 2 companies. I guess maybe I'm rejected.

On the other side, I get another offer again. This is from the company that I applied 6 months ago. I originally wanted to go to that company, but they did not reply/see my application. When they contacted me, I was already hired to the current company. Now, they're offering me again. I hope this one would end well.

Good Luck! I hope you get it! I just want to point out that when I got my current job (been here 13 years), I put in 2 to 3 resumes daily for 6 months and got 3 interviews. You just have to keep trying over and over again until something matches up.

A little vent today.

I get 3 offers this week, but none of them are right. Bad company reviews, slow/no response, or unprofessional word (One of them used bad slang word instead of formal one). The good side is, at least they make my current company looks so much better.

Didn't know where else to post, but I have to get this out lest I...

Was reading a thread on PC talking about how mental illness impacts people in their professions, and I feel like the post was targeted toward me. The general premise was that there are people here on the forums in careers where they care for others, and teachers came up specifically. That the poster would be upset to know that their child's teacher was mentally fragile, especially children "developmentally disabled."

So I'm a special education teacher, and I already struggle with imposter syndrome so much. I fear constantly that I'm doing a disservice to my students by teaching at all. I'm not sure if this person was thinking of me, but unless I shake this feeling I'm not sure how I go to work on Monday.

I am a caregiver also. My client is disabled and so am I on several different planes both physical and mental. I do the best for my client that I can do. That is all anyone can expect of me. Sometimes I feel that my client's family believes there could be a better caregiver for him. I just get a feeling... However, my client likes me, so that is that. His condition demands as little change in caregivers as possible. His needs come first, not the opinions of his family.
