I am in third semester of pastry and bakery of a public Institute (I.E.K in Greece)
I want to have an internship when I finish my studies in fourth semester
My problem is that I am not sure how to achieve this and the things below are my main problems:
1)Lack of experience in everyday life and workforce (I never have worked)
2)Lack of good communication skills
3)I don’t know what my abilities are as a person
4)Lack of confidence
5)Βad conditions for workers in market because of crisis,unemployment and austerity (an example: you work for 8 hours and you are paid for 6 and the salary is 60% of the minimal)
I am in 6th year of recovery from disorganized schizophrenia. 3 years in remission and pretty stable. 32 years old.
I have achieved to make some friends but I think that my functionality,insecurity,immaturity and my complexes may cause problems long term.
My main goal of studies was that. To meet some people and go out of the house.
Now I want to pursue the chance to get in the workforce. I feel it is very difficult because of the above.
Is that the case or I just catastrophize and I look only at my feelings.
I constantly doubt and I don’t know if I must trust my insticts because my surroundings and my doctor press me to make the next step.
I am tired of quitting another chance of some certification.
