I’m curious because as of right now I work in a corporate setting for a restaurant business. I was sitting at lunch today and I realized that I actually do enjoy being in kitchens with the heat, the mess, and the (good) stress and anxiety during a busy night. I figure working for this corporate firm in a restaurant wouldn’t be a bad gig.
But of course a simple Google search came-back with numerous complaints about the firm I work for, how working for them sucks, how the company is terrible, etc. Needless to say I don’t want to end-up working as a part of some soulless corporate machine and I’m cynical as to what it’s like. I tried being positive but that hasn’t worked much. I basically want a career that pays well and which I will enjoy. I do realize working for a corporation isn’t bad if you’re lucky and I hope that I could do just that. I also realize not all firms are like this but I am inherently suspicious of all corporations (even as a business-minded person).
The other issue is that I want a job that I truly enjoy and which is fulfilling…and that pays well. It often seems you do what you love and you’re dirt poor or you do what you sorta like but get paid well. I’m hoping for something different.
Sorry if this sound confused…the past few days I have become very cynical, upset, and lost because what I really felt I wanted to do I now realize I don’t and I don’t know where to go next. I’m not cynical about finding jobs, just finding ones where I am a cubicle rat ala Office Space.
