All my life, I've been one of those people who doesn't let others walk all over them, someone who says whether or not they're happy, someone who doesn't take any crap. Well, that has all changed since taking my job, and I'm not very happy about the change.

I feel like I have been "abused" at my job. I feel like I'm treated like someone who didn't graduate from college, someone who isn't supposed to be an accountant. I NEVER get to make any decisions, I NEVER get to put my two cents in, and if I do try and put my two cents in, I feel like my bosses choose to do EXACTLY the opposite. More days than not, I struggle with why I am even here since I'm just doing meaningless work. And by meaningless, I mean having EVERY single little thing I do nitpicked until it's not even close to what I started with.

Well, I was waiting until my husband found a job that he was enjoying, after all, he isn't even using his degree at his job, but I can't wait any longer. I am officially back out on the job market. Not officially, of course I have to keep my current job until said new job comes along, but still, I haven't looked at another job in over 1.5 years, but it's time.

I know one thing is for sure, I cannot do this for the rest of my life... and by this, I think I mean accounting.

Excuse me while I go scratch my lottery tickets :-)

Good luck! It's scary getting back out there, but sometimes you just know it's the right thing. The market is really picking back up! I hope you find your passion and dream job SOON!

I think the good thing is that you clearly still have some of this left within're putting your foot down! And, that takes guts! Good luck!!!

I completely understand where you are coming from. I have been looking for something new for almost two years now while staying at my current job. Good luck!

good luck with the job search.
you deserve to be happy in what you do, i mean a person probably spends more of their time at work than anywhere else. and congratulations in taking a stand and deciding not to 'take it anymore'.
you are brave, daring, and very cool.

well, you deserve to be happy, so if that isn't happening at this job, a change is the way to go. i hope that the job search does not take too long and that you find somewhere where you are able to not be micro-managed.

i am right there with you.
i find myself really disliking my job more everyday because i don't feel appreciated and i don't feel like i can "spread my wings" so to speak and really get what i need to out of it.
good luck!!!
