Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • Job hopping with an intention

    Does moving from a permanent contract to a different job on a fixed term contract, 1 year and a half after graduating, in order to a) get away from a bad boss and b) get experience of your profession in another sector, with a view to going back to your original sector, 1 or 2 years afterwards when your contract is up, make your CV and job history messy? Will it be hard to go back by making you look disloyal and uncommitted?

    Hi Ybe7,

    I'm not sure if it would be bad, just because it depends on the industry you are working in. There are some industries where the turnover rate is fast, so people don't stay in the same job for very long, and others where you will stay for many years and just be promoted through the company. Maybe try researching the two jobs, as well as your industry, to see if that is the case.

    Based on what you have said, taking a new job might be a great idea. Coming out of university, it is always a good idea to get some more experience, as it will help you get a better job afterwards. Coupled with having a bad boss, I think a change may be a good idea. But definitely do some research beforehand to make sure it's the right fit.

      Thanks for your answer. It's definitely the right change having done the research. I just know that it's an industry where people are expected to stay for a long time. But I don't want to do that early on in my career since I know I want to go back anyway.
