The years of experience makes me angry, because it means that even new grads are much less likely to get the job. The library doesn’t pay me a lot; I’m living paycheque to paycheque, and on welfare. Lots and lots and lots of people work at jobs that are boring or unfulfilling, and see that as a perfectly okay means to an end (money).
By the way, I read your article about the reader who hates working. In recent years, our culture has tried to sell us a line of crap about finding your passion and doing what you love and not settling for work that doesn’t deeply fulfill you — but it’s bullshit that ignores the fact that the majority of the world’s population works to get food and housing, not for emotional or spiritual fulfillment.
Part of the reason for that is that you’re running out of time to jump around from job to job so much.
At 22, it probably hasn’t done you that much harm, but pretty soon it’s going to mean you have a really checkered job history, and that will mean that the jobs you’re most interested in won’t want to hire you.
because at some point if you do discover that there’s a career path you want to follow, your future self is going to be so grateful to your current self that you built up the kind of stable job history that will make it much, much easier for you to do that.
Speaking of things your future self will be grateful for: If you can find a way to afford it, go back to school and finish a degree. Write a novel, write a blog, write whatever it is that you’re driven to write.
Decide that your goal right now is steady income and work you can do competently, and maybe some time to write too. Funding your ability to live your life is the core of success. As a total side note, and thus something I am putting down here in tiny print: It’s not that common for employers to post jobs they’ve already filled. And sometimes they post a job in good faith and then end up not needing to fill it after all.
Let that be enough for now, and see how things unfold from there — but measure that unfolding time in years, not months. That’s nothing personal, and there are far more jobs that will actually be filled through a regular hiring process.
Right now I am working eight hours a week at the library, and although it isn’t a difficult job, I don’t enjoy it.The latter has happened to me twice: I called the employers to inquire about my application status and they told me that the person they were supposed to replace wasn’t leaving anymore (what the fudge, man????? My greatest dream is to be a novelist, but we all know how slim those chances are. Probably exactly what you’re doing — quit a bunch of jobs and gotten really frustrated with the whole thing. Here’s the thing, though: You’re probably going to have to work most of your life to bring in income.Even for me to get a job in technical writing or as an editor/proofreader is hard because everybody wants you to have a degree with many years of experience. If I go back to retail it’ll be a few months before I quit again. Sure, it’s ideal if the work you’re doing happens to be something that you like and find fulfilling long-term, but that’s a bonus.So the litmus test right now shouldn’t be “is this fulfilling me?” or “can I happily do this for the rest of my life?
