Hi all, i guess this post is a bit of a vent but i would love some advice...
I am turning 22 this year. I did a 3 yr degree in marketing and have been working in the advertising department of a large fast moving consumer goods company for about 2 years. My day to day work is much the same of an admin assistant..in other words I'm the girl that does all the tasks that everyone else hates doing. I have been deeply unhappy in this role for the past 6ish months, to the point of me coming home in tears most afternoons. My OH thinks I'm depressed and has no idea what to do or what to say to me when i am in this state and I'm worried that this is putting a strain on our relationship. Whilst i get along with most that i work with, they are all a lot older than me and i really feel like the odd one out. I have lost most of my friends since leaving school, so he is all i really have..I feel like this job is poison but I'm too scared to quit without having another full time job to go to..
I wouldn't say i enjoyed my degree, i just had no idea what to do when i left school and was pushed towards uni. I have been looking for another marketing or events job for a little while but no luck as yet. I think i could be happy in the same career but at a different company...it just doesnt seem to be happening for me.
So....I have started thinking lately that maybe i should just make a complete career change. I always wanted to be a vet growing up and the only times i am truly happy these days is when I'm home cuddling my pets. I'm not prepared to do a 5 yr uni degree to become a vet but i have been considering doing a qual in vet nursing. If there are any vet nurses out there i would love to hear a little more about your job and if you're happy? How easy is it finding work? etc.
