    Hi hq overview! So I just wanted to see if I could get advice or anyone’s personal life experiences. To sum it up I’m 24 on my first week of my third corporate job and I already can’t sleep and don’t want to go back. My two previous jobs were in finance so I thought that was the issue, but now I’m out of finance and I still hate going in everyday. All 3 of the companies I worked for are voted top places to work in my area and were all 15,000+ employees. I’m starting to think corporate life isn’t for me. I used to love waiting tables and bartending because I got to move around and talk with people constantly. Now I sit at a desk doing mind numbing tasks thinking about something more all the time. I’ve always had a huge interest in real estate because my mother has been in the business for 10+ years so I was thinking about getting licensed and possibly bartending on the side or maybe getting a job at Trader Joe’s? And who knows maybe I’d make a career out of one of those places! I have NEVER had anxiety, sleeping issues, loss of appetite or sense of purpose until working a corporate job. Every job I’ve worked I’ve always been great at so not to toot my own horn, but I know I’m smart, have a great work ethic and people genuinely like working with me. Also I should add I still live at home because I love my parents so I just haven’t seen the point in moving out yet cause I’ve saved so much and only have a car loan of about 10k other than that no debt. Please feel free to share any life experiences or struggles! – by hq overview melksteak – –
