I’ve been temping since I left Chester last year, and it doesn’t really get any easier. I am really missing working in an office on a permament basis, and although I was at my last role for 11 months, I always knew I would have to leave.
Temping feels quite a soul destroying thing to do, since no one is usually interested in talking to the temp or even remembering their names! As a temp, its unlikely that you’ll be included in the office jokes and traditions, like putting kisses at the end of emails, going to lunch (and accidentally taking longer than you should!) or going out on a night out. You just have to keep quiet and get the work done.
The problem I have is that I honestly don’t know what I want to do on a career type basis. I like organising things (people, events, items), I like economics, I like blogging and I like drinking a lot of tea. Sadly there is not much call for an economist girl writer who drinks a lot of tea.
This little ramble has been brought to you by the fact that I am bored of temping, and have far too much time to think whilst auditing paperwork. (The job and the company are nice, but it feels very lonely!)
