Job Stress 2011 Edition
I started a new job last June, a new field in a different Bank. Unfortunately I should’ve listened to my gut instincts and not gone with it but needless to say I didn’t do that. Instead I ignored my gut and got the job. It’s something entirely new, I have no experience in it, but I only have a vague idea.
My stress arises from the fact that there is no one to teach you what is right and wrong in this job, that I am alone in this department and I am learning as I go along. The mistakes are in fact highly sensitive so I am in a a pile of manure. But that’s not the only problem, my direct manager is an ass, one who chooses to not do his job but in fact drop it on my head, especially since it’s of finance nature. I get assigned tasks which I know zilch about and when I ask for help I get vague answers even when I ask for explanation, I am then delegated to my senior manager.
This is the main reason why I have decided to quite banking sector, quit the private sector in full. My contract is for 1 year and renewable however I am choosing not to renew it as I hate this and I have become even more stressed out ever since. I just feel like I want to explode, whoever said private sector is the easiest field to get into is a dumb monkey!
