In which I quit

My job, that is. It's a great feeling - long story short: I really, really needed to quit - but now I have a month at best to find something else. What I'd like is a job in my "chosen field" (that'd be media/journalism/publishing/etc - almost anything tangentially related to placing words in order on a page); what I'll probably end up with is another retail job. The important thing, though, is that I'm leaving this retail job. Hooray, and so on.

Oh man! Good for you, Tim. Quitting is always a hard thing to do. In between possible jobs, you could concentrate on writing up a few articles for publications, but obviously getting regular paid work is the main thing. I'll keep an eye out, anyway.

Just sent through a few links for a few Melbourne jobs. Non client service ones, that is.

I will drink to your imminent success, and keep a lookout on ArtsHub for the right kind of thing.

Tim S, you go, girl!
Check out business analysis / help writing if the lit publishing jobs are too thin on the ground.

Wait a minute - no, forget I said that.

doing the jobs dance for you.

I've only ever quit a job once. It was a surreal experience because it took over a week of my two weeks notice before anyone acknowledged that I'd resigned.

Retail is soul destroying stuff (I actually got made redundant from my one and only retail job). I worked for a company whose entire business plan seemed to be that you could pay female staff next to nothing if you called them a manager. It was a sad, sad place to work.

Best of luck in the job market.

Cheers all!
