UNI GRAD KEEPS CHANGING JOBS, ASKS HOW COME HIS PEERS ARE EARNING MUCH MORE

While people are trolling or sharing how great their career is, I cant help but worry over mine.

Having spent a few initial years at business firm, I left when the company was cutting manpower due to covid19. I didn’t get laid off but the company had very long working hours.

I went into the special needs industry as I had a passion for the kids and the school accepted me. However, things weren’t what I thought it would be as the SN teachers aren’t ‘protected’ by the school at all. What that means is that the SN kids can attack you and get away with it scott-free. I felt very upset as I felt that us teachers, should have at least a basic form of protection from the school. But nope, not one.

After leaving the SN industry, it was tough returning to the finance industry as I had been away for a few years. I managed to finally get a job after 6 months of searching.

Things didnt turn out as planned and I left after 5 months.

Once again the job search begins.

Sometimes, I look back and wonder if I made a mistake anywhere and would have changed something if I had the chance to. But back then when I was applying for the job, i wouldnt know how the company and job would truly be like until I’ve actually started it. There wasn’t much I could do or change actually.

I’m just really disappointed that my career has turned out like that. It has been around 8 years since I’ve graduated and my peers are earning much more with better prospects too. But thinking about it I don’t think I’m very much far off from them in terms of aptitude and attitude. I was willing to work and give my best always.

I cant help but feel that you really need the element of luck in building a career and finding the right job. I must admit I totally did not see myself having a career path like this.

Anyone else’s career did not turn out as planned or you know of people’s who didn’t? Is that common among most graduates?
