    I absolutely love this post. I have myself gone through phases where I questioned my choices and I would definitely agree with Amanda. Look for something while still employed. I think it’s vital that you learn what makes YOU tick and what you can imagine doing for a long time and into the future.

    I definitely agree with Amanda about finding the opportunities to learn while you’re there. I don’t love my first job out of uni but I see it as an opportunity to get really confident with making phone calls to people (I have to make a lot of calls in my job, many to people who don’t like what I need to tell them), to learn to prioritise my tasks and manage my time, to network and get comfortable with talking to people I don’t know. This job won’t be forever, but you may as well learn as much from it as you can while you’re looking for something better!

    I HATED my first job too! Hated it. I agree with everything Amanda has said, especially about staying employed while you hunt but I would also heavily encourage you to start the job search straight away!

    I kept putting it off by thinking “I want to make it a year in my first job before I move” because I thought it would look better on my CV.

    I made it to a year and then it took me another SIX months to land my next job. 18 months is a very long time to be doing something you on’t enjoy!

    On a positive note, the job that I had to wait six months for was literally my dream job and I love it! So there is hope :)

    This post hits me right now. Just got a job offer from a company where I think I’m having doubts saying yes to. (It’s also my first job offer) Reading this made see the positivities of getting that job. I am also relating to Sarah since I don’t know what to do after getting a degree and license.
