    Ok im working part time now one day a week at a retail store. I have been working there since my college years, i am now in my final year of university with one term left.

    In short, i hate my job even though its one day a week. I have been there so long i just get fed up of everything im doing there managers, supervisors, the shifts where im constantly standing for 8 hours with 30 min break.

    Now i have two places at charities where i volunteer, the reason im there is because im volunteering and gaining experience in the subject i am studying.

    I have saved up 10K working, if i carry on volunteering i will most likely not have a paying job for 6+ months as volunteering will take up my time so i would have to leave my one day a week job.

    Should i :

    A: Stop volunteering for work experience and just man up and work until the end of uni ( 6 more months) then quit once i get a new job (however long it takes)

    OR

    B: Quit my job, live off my 10k for 6+ months and hope all the work experience lands me a job quicker in my field right after uni. In all calculations i would lose 2-3k from the time i quit until say september 2013.


    Help me people, even a quick post stating either A or B would do but if you want to explain why then please do.


    Thanks a bunch!

    I would leave your job, I did and I'm so glad because I didn't realise how much I hated it until I left. Some things aren't worth it.

    I would just stick it out. Second option is quite a gamble with today's job market, you could end up waiting longer than 6 months to land another job (no matter what the government says or what schemes it brings in). Just not wise to leave a job right now unless you have another paying job to go to.
