Hi, I have 2 job offers. One is a start up, the other is a job scope I have keen interest in. But I am worried I can't pass probation as they have high expectations. I need a job badly and hope to stay long. I worry I will regret not choosing the start up company if I fail the probation in the other company. What should I do ?

Either the market is really bad now or I've really no luck in job hunting.. i stopped work for a year as i just started a family. Started looking for a job recently and it's been 2 months of VERT active job hunting but nothing!. It used to be so much easier and my career was doing quite well back then before i decided to take a break. Is it because employers aren't giving chance to employees who had taken a break? Even if it's only for a year? Feeling kinda depressed....

How do you define very active job hunting ? Do you send resume to random diff industry ?

Not sure if this is a real post but here are a few tips

1. Recognise the anxiety you have is real but do not feed it. And Focus on the Task at hand .
Eg - Dont worry about your tomorrow problem which is theoretical. Focus on just doing what your new company / boss give you as task to the best of your ability. Also know that studies have shown that if your body/ mind remain in such an anxious state of panic, it will be difficult to perform well. Give yourself a chance to relax so you can perform better.

2. On which job to take - my recommendation :Pursue your job interest. Not the company.
Why?? People perform best when their passion and skill are aligned. The company (be it a start up or matured company) is just an avenue to express that skill. When you acquire the skills , you can choose the companies you want to join. Or rather they will chose you.

3. High Expectation and Staying Long.
Before you worry about your boss or the company expectation of you, what are your own expectations of yourself? Did you expect to goof off and laze around ? (Hopefully not !) And if you had expectations over yourself, would it not be that many of your own expectations are aligned to these high expectation set ? If not, ask yourself what is the basis that these expectations are formed ? Eg Are they reasonable ie standards that you can achieve if you have given it all. If so, then relax. Be answerable to your own high expectation first before you worry about other people expectation.

Also, instead of hoping that the job will be there for us. I remind myself constant that the job only pays bills. And no one owes me a living to keep my skills marketable . I owe it to myself to make myself marketable and to make myself financial independent.

Finally, enjoy the fact that now you have 2 job offers ! Recognise the moment ! ie that you have now moved on from the stage of jobless to being employed. Be Thankful as you have move on. Continue to do so and support others whom are not as fortunate.

Cheers ! and Congrats !

I am not sure about him. However , these past 5 months for me I have been using fastjobs using keyword search then just applying for whatever I can find.

I even went and to redo my resume and still nothing.

Edit: looking for admin assistant jobs

Same person who posted. In a way, yes.. I'm not particular about industry as I've worked in both public and private sectors. I specialised in accounting but in my last role, I handled accounting, hr and even system implementation. I was even promoted before i tendered. I've attended a few interviews but all end up with no offers as they claimed that my last job wasn't very specialised. Duh...
Actually i had an offer in the very first job application. But I declined it as immediately after the company offered, the HQ freeze the headcount then 2 weeks later offered again. Then next day they called and said it had to be a contract role instead. My God!! It was too drama for me.. although that was a bank (not some small firms), i don't feel comfortable so declined the offer. After that, not much luck. Sigh..
