I feel so stressed out as a young person, trying so hard to carve out a career, starting really from ground up.
I did well at University, and obviously this isn't really what is important, while, what I am trying to say is that I applied myself. I got some experience in the form of voluntary work, however, I don't feel my work is of the quality it should be at this stage. I just don't have that knack that others possess.
Job searching is on my mind all the time. I sit on my laptop trying to do some work, I get a headache thinking about the stress and pressure of wanting to get my first job in industry and it makes me ill. I feel like the world is going at 150miles an hour. I can't even check out the news without feeling ill.
It is driving me to insanity, to the point that is all I think about. I can't switch off and give myself a break. I'm 25 and I feel a bit behind all my peers. Each day morphs into the next and its the same old. Days off consist of job hunting, looking at my CV, checking out linkedIn, checking emails. All for same purpose.
