I realized today how long I have been at my current job, security guard, for months. First I am greateful to have a job given how long I have been out of one, but the last holiday weekend made me think how much more I want. If I was making more than what I do (higher than minimum wage, but not where I should be paid), it probably wouldn't be that bad. But all that's been in my head is the term "wasting potential", which is how I feel I am now.
I took this job as a stop gap, get some money, and have something recent on my resume. OK done. I thought maybe I would find this job fine and can grow from it. That's not happening. I am not really stimulated at this job, which makes time move slowly. I also don't feel as if people find me worth more than this job. I'm basically a body to fulfill a stores insurance policy.
So I'm sure you are all saying "get a better job". I'm trying, but I feel lost where I should apply. I should refresh on some of the A+ cert info and try help desk jobs again, I should try insurance work again, but not the BS sales jobs insurance companies send me. Or I should just get any admin job.
I feel confused and lost as to my next move, but also afraid of being stuck where I am.
