Hi, For about a year and a half I worked in a call center troubleshooting cell phones. I quit because my supervisor was being a dick and I was turned down for several promotions. I was accepted into another job working at the helpdesk for the hospital in the city I was living in at the time. This job just involved talking calls, tracking problems, and forwarding issues to the next levels of support. It wasn't challenging for me like my previous job and I felt like I was walking in there every day like a robot that was only programmed to do certain things. I could reset passwords, but that was the extent of my troubleshooting. The pay was good though, but that's the only thing I really miss. After my probation period I asked my manager if I could write some IT certifications I was told they would have to be related to my job (I don't think theres any IT certification that specializes in just transferring calls), so I was denied the further training. I was with my ex during that time and when we broke up I was too depressed to continue working there. I remember us having a fight and she said that there are a lot of jobs out there that the person doesn't have to do much of anything to get paid well, and I was one of those people. The person that just sits there "forwarding calls". I took that to heart, but it wasn't the only think that influenced my decision to leave. I felt that IT was slowly leading me over a cliff and I would never get the experience to where I wanted to be. I went back to school and became and electrician instead, but now that I'm finished my schooling, I'm having difficulty finding work. With no income its hard to pay off debts, so I keep asking myself if it was the right choice to make. When I resigned from my last job I was quickly replaced so I can't beg for it back. An ex friend told me that I was too rash in my decision to quit that job, because it could have led to further opportunities. I couldn't see any, and my depression wasn't making things any better. What do you think? If I could get this job back, should I continue with it? We were a helpdesk but weren't really treated as such. The IT administration there disabled most of the helpdesk features on our computers so I just stood there and waited hours sometimes to answer a call. It was so boring, but maybe I should have been glad I had a job. I know I've made a similiar post to this before, but I'm lost on this one. Me and my stupid decisions Thanks for reading.
