Feeling depressed about work. watch

    I started my new job last week and I want to quit. The hours are flexible, the pay is minimum wage but the job is not what I applied for. I was employed as an event co-ordinator/marketing assistant but I spent my time sorting out the company's contract and handbook for them and I am only paid minimum wage. I absolutely hate law and made this clear to my employer but she doesn't care.

    I know with every job you start off small and work your way up, but I've never been employed to do things outside my role unless they were absoulutely necessary. I've cleaned up the office and made tea for my previous employers and never had a problem with it.

    The other employees do what they are employed to do.

    If I quit I do not get JSA, but I am fine with that. I have enough money to live on and I am working on starting my own busines. I only took the job to help my mum out. Both her and my dad have told me to quit but I've never quit anything in my life.

    I'd rather use this time to apply for ANY job that I will get either experience or more money from.

    So should I quit or not?

    If you can possibly stick with it, while also looking for another job, then I'd do that. Is that a possibility for you?
