SINGAPORE: A young Reddit user wanted to know what kind of impact it would have on her resume as she’s already had two jobs at the age of 23, one with a contract that ended after six months and another which she declined after the probation period.
Now she wants to quit her current job only two days after she started.
u/Rich-Cheesecake-4608 wrote on r/askSingapore that she left her first job after the contract ended because of a verbally abusive manager. As for the second job, the company wanted her to take on two marketing positions for $36k a year, so she decided against continuing there.
“After 4 months of searching and resting as I saved up enough, I started my job yesterday as an admin assistant but realised it was just not for me and it might affect my career goals as an HR professional…
I feel like such a loser and a failure. I want to find a company where I will stay long term and grow with but it’s so hard.
Is my life ruined at 23 if I leave this job? I want to try and toughen it and go through a year but i don’t know. Literally crying and sobbing cause it feels like I can’t stay in a job long term while my friends look like they are doing well.”
Commenters on the post offered encouraging and supportive advice to the post author, some of whom shared their own experiences with either leaving a job quickly or telling her to give it a chance.
A number of Reddit users reassured her that she’s not ruining her life.
Some told her that she doesn’t have to include her short-lived job on her resume.
