I recently began a new job in a field that is drastically different from my education and background. I have a degree in Marketing/Communications, but wound up working in Insurance, as my position as a marketing coordinator was cut with my last company.
I started with the insurance company about a month ago as an Executive Assistant- I feel disappointed that I am off track with my career, and am finding myself to be very bored, and do not foresee myself continuing in the Insurance field to get my license etc. Going from having a position in my desired field, to being an assistant in a world I am not necessarily interested in has taken a toll on my confidence and motivation.
Although I am just about 25, I feel a TON of pressure to "get it together." I want to build a strong career and foundation and know that I have the ability and passion to do so, but I am stuck.
What advice would you give... Stick it out? Or move on? SOS!
