This might come off as bitching but I just needed to vent a little bit. Started playing rugby this year, fine and dandy, took a big hit, so I am in rough shape the start of this week, knee swelled up, can barely walk, did not leave bed for almost three days, til today almost. Called everyday at work and made sure it was kosher.
I went in tonight, well I am at work now to see where things were at, work at a large FI, commercial banking. And I just have a ton of e-mails bitching at me. And I don’t really think it is warranted. I am one of the most junior managers in the prov/state. Irregardless, makes me want to almost quit. The job I do not especially enjoy, and there is a lot of tedious maintenance/admin stuff. Now I want to get out of the city I am in, and there is a ton of head hunters lately, so I am into a couple phone interviews for other positions in the same line of work.
I should probably be thankful I have a decent job that pays okay, but I want to move both out of the city and out of the job, but I am stuck due to, house/car payment/bills etc. and not much of an escape plan saved up. I want to get out of this line of banking, but I am pondering whether or not it is just the city I am in and the massive size of the small portfolio I am dealing with. 140+ clients with only about 20 million total borrowing. The new offers are much smaller but larger dollar amounts which I figure I might enjoy and it would be in a lot nicer of city.
I think I might be at a crossroads where I say fuck banking and really figure it out, travel/mba or something a long those lines or just accept it.
The new job I am looking at is 20% pay raise extra week vacation and all moving would be paid for and my bonus owed. So I don’t know if I should continue in a field I don’t exactly enjoy, but at the same time I do not have a back-up plan. As of now I am thinking if I get the new offer, I would take it, change of scenary seems to be what I am really wanting and it would be a fairly well paid gig, 70-80 plus bonus 4 weeks holiday. I am 25 here by the way, still a young pup.
