In a bit of a panic as have found out that my job is ending at the end of July. I can't afford not to work!

I just don't know what sort of job to look for. I mean really I need to do anything but do ideally want a job that I like.

School admin would be good but I don't know when those jobs tend to be advertised. So I am looking at admin in general but they all seem to want immediate starts which I can't really do. If I go for something like working in a shop or cleaning is it unfair to still be looking for a different job?

I just don't know what I am good at. After almost a year in my current job I feel utterly rubbish at everything, like a failure, and like I am not good enough for anything.

I loved admin (school hours would be amazing) but I don't know how competitive these are. Plus I am not sure if I could sell myself in an interview after having my confidence knocked by my current role ...... big case of face not fitting there.

Why is your job ending? What happened?

If you like admin then go temping. It's a great way to testing out a job, seeing if your face fits and getting your foot in the door.

Job is ending at the end of July.

Basically it seems that I am being pushed out. I know that people always say it isn't them but in this case I think it is the case. I have tried so hard but nothing is good enough. Temp contract - always promised it would extend after probation. It has really knocked me as I have never had an issue getting on with people before and have never been bad at a job.
