Ok this thread is work related and i'm a little worried and feel a little trapped at the moment, well here is why. I left school at 16 met my current girlfriend around the same time, where both 20 now and have a beutiful daughter, a mortgage, bills to pay, luckily enough so far we have had no credit cards or loans so other than the mortgage we are both in no debt what so ever. I have worked for telewest broadband for about 3 years now and despise it, we have had new recently that 6000 jobs are getting cut due to the merge with NTL, now our department has had no news yet wether or not we are staying or going and they are sacking people left, right and centre for the most stupid reasons, so in my eyes it doesnt look very good. I really would like to find another job but feel trapped as the whole family depends on my income and i really cannot afford to be out of work for any amount of time, the job i do now is easy, too easy that after 3 years i feel that i'm just wasting my time here, there are no prospects or benefits and i really would like to get of here sharpish, ive been looking into a few apprentiships in Joinery and Electricians but the ones i have seen are more aimed at school leavers on low pay. I'm not really sure what i should do, should i hold on to find out if my job is safe and stick with the job i hate, or risk it and look for a job that i might love. Also does anyone have any idea how easy jobs are to find these days, only ever applied for one job and been here ever since.
