Default Quit Without A Job

I've quitted my job (due to lack of job satisfaction) with a finacial institution without securing another job first. That was 4 months ago. I am still on the look out for a suitable job. Should I continue to wait, take a contract job first or lower my expectations and go for a less ideal/lesser-pay job? My initial confidence is diminishing.

you quit just because of a lack of job satisfaction? bad move.

Yes. I am full of regrets now. Not because I like the job but because I could not find a similar/better paying job and with a good organisation too.

lower your pride and ask your boss to re-hire you back if possible. you should've asked for an internal transfer rather than quit. but no use crying over spilt milk. move on.

I heard they have already got someone for the position. Even if they havn't, I guess it will be not be easy to face the colleagues and all. Embarassing.

I believe you must be female, 30 from a VWO organisation. Good luck with your next job, remember it's not the end of the world dear. It's just s J.O.B.

Hi Roy,

No, you must have mistaken me for someone you know. I'm way older than 30 and was working in a financial institution, not VWO. Of course it is not the end of the world, it's bread & butter and a blemished job record.

I was in the same boat few years ago. It took me 1.5 years to find a suitable job. After 3 months of unemployment and boredom, I took on a temp position. The company offered me a perm post after months of working there. So I would suggest you try temp positions if you still can't find anything suitable after a few more months. Otherwise, will not look good on resume

Thanks, whyworry, for your suggestion. I will have to settle for a contract job if I still cant find a suitable by end of this month. My concern is, once I accepted a lower pay, it will be difficult to bargain for at least my last drawn pay in future.
