I feel so embarrased to go back because I feel I got paranoid about some of my colleagues… so I took sometime off and then coronavirus hit with a lockdown. So I have not been gone back…
In the meantime I had thoughts of changing my whole career. The job really is not something I want to do for life and if I go back I have a feeling I won’t do anything to change that. The only reason why I was there because I got on with the people but now I feel they don’t like me.
Right now I am studying an Accounting qualification from home. It is really difficult as I am two days into it, but this is what I want. I am also looking for an apprenticeship position so I can do my training on the job for this course…
I guess I won’t be going back, but I won’t tell them that yet becasue if for some reason this doesn’t work out I am screwed
They’ll call you if you don’t show up for work.
Well, I have not been able to go in due to lock down measures. They will call me but I am zero hours. It means they can offer me work and i can refuse and vice versa.
Go for it @anon80629714
I am in a similar position job wise with this lockdown, and I know how hard it is firsthand to decide what to do as these are big decisions.
My opinion is you’re better off doing the training with a firm, as they will want to keep you and their investment in your skills in their company. Sounds like if you landed that opportunity you will be made
Good luck with it.
If you keep saying no I don’t think they’ll keep you.
How long is your course? You can tell them that you want to take your vacations.
It is a tough decision isn’t it. And quite daunting. Yes I am looking at apprenticeships. I am fine with being paid much less as long as it is more than the universal credit wage. I am happy with apprenticeship wages as long as the experience comes with it.
Well, there are students who come to work there once a year and they’re still on the books. Either way, I don’t think I want to do data entry for long anyway.
