I'm lucky that I've been in jobs that are related to what I studied however I'm finding work incredibly dull - constantly thinking about holidays to get me out the office.
My last job I enjoyed the small team I worked with, we got on brilliantly and my confidence soared. At some points I was even taking on an assistant manager role when employees were off. However the management was shocking and the work/life balance barely existed.
I looked for another job and got one that's temporary however I'm still not enjoying it as I don't feel part of the team. I'm the only person in the office who is doing my job and the rest are doing the same roles. My desk is separate from everyone elses which leads to me being left out of conversations and I feel I can't join in because it's difficult to hear what they're saying.
Many times I've said bye and been ignored and when there was a team gathering, one of the managers was making eye contact with everyone but me.
I'm trying to involve myself in conversations and appear smiley etc but I'm losing my confidence again and feel like I'm just hiding under my desk. Plus the team rarely tries to start conversations with me.
I may be over analysing but that's just how my brain works. Sorry for the long post just wanted to share incase anyone has had similar experiences.
All I want is to enjoy what I'm doing and feel part of a team - does anyone have any tips on these situations?
