I’ve been seeking work for a month now. I recently quit my last job due to very dangerous work environment that caused me to have anxiety attacks, panic attacks, stress, and depression. Something has happened to me that caused me to worry about if I was going to make it home in the morning.
I am venturing off into different areas of work, but I can’t get very excited about them. I don’t want to waste anyone’s time, or my time, going through the interview process for a company I can’t find any interest in. I don’t want to show up to some job I hate everyday just for a paycheck.
I want to find work that is satisfying, interesting, challenging, rewarding, and allows me to help others. I’m a very empathetic person, a great listener, and I’m a person who doesn’t take things I hear or see at face value. I like to research and formulate my own thoughts, opinions, beliefs, etc...I like to be physically active. I’ve had jobs in the past, example: Administrative Assistant, Front desk receptionist, and sales, and these types of jobs drive me nuts! I don’t like to sit for long periods of time. I don’t like to be around a lot of people I don’t know. I have very high anxiety and being in a restaurant or convenience store puts me on edge and I can’t concentrate on anything but bad things that could possibly happen. This got worse after I was held up at gunpoint a few months back. I don’t mind working by myself because I tend to start a project and I don’t like to stop until it is accurate. I am very detail oriented and I don’t mind change in the company culture. Also, I take time management, seriously.
Given what information I have laid out in this post, what would you think would be some jobs would be a good fit for me? I’m being very picky about my job search. I’m literally spending over 4-8 hours a day searching for jobs, scrolling through employee reviews, creating different types of resumes and cover letters. I am having success with employers reaching out, but I just can’t get excited or interested in these companies. What should I do if I can’t figure out what I want to do? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
