Miastar Posted June 16, 2017 Share Posted June 16, 2017 I have worked for 10 years - half of that was spent working in retail whilst I studied at school, college and university. I got a graduate role which I was at for 2 years. The company then relocated and I didn't want to move with it, plus there was no progression and I wasn't enjoying working there any more. I left and pursued temporary work closer to home for a year, and have worked permanently at a charity for another year. I am over qualified for the role and it is very low income, however it has been so beneficial for me to work in this field and it is related to the work I did in the graduate role. I am however a bit confused about my next step. I'm fearful I wasted 2 years in temporary and low paid jobs (although I purely needed money at the time and the jobs were all excellent experience). I'm 26 and worried I've "messed up" and don't know how to go about the right steps to put things right. I feel angry at myself when I see how successful some of my peers are - and like I've been stagnating. I could be a lot worse off, but I just feel like a failure and I want to ensure my next steps take me to a worthwhile career and future. Has anyone had a similar experience? Link to comment
