About 2 months ago I got a temporary job as an assistant via an agency and while it’s a nice job and I like the people there.
I don’t think I’m a great match because there are long periods of just doing nothing every single day.
While I don’t like to be overworked and stressed, I also don’t like to be doing very little all day. We aren’t allowed to read when there are no customers, and the computers are monitored pretty strictly so I probably wouldn’t be able to do something productive that would improve my personal life such as doing a course or something.
Last week I got offered a job in a law firm, starting in 5 days.
I have told the agency about the job offer, but haven’t been able to tell the manager herself as she is off sick. I would feel bad for leaving them without much warning because my contract was supposed to end in mid-April of next year. Some family and friends have told me to just leave, while others have said I need to stay until the contract ends.
Will it look bad on me?
The job offer is about 4 times the amount of salary I am getting.
