    Hey all,

    I started a higher apprenticeship at a top firm, now nearly 5 months in I'm not enjoying it. I dread going in every day and just find the job way too stressful. I'm however, in two minds- I know that its a great opportunity but if i'm not enjoying it is there any point in staying?
    The contract is 4 years and i'm not sure if i'll survive that long.

    What shall I do? :/


    Thanks

    I don't see the point in staying unless its absolutely necessary for you to have the qualification for future plans; if u have a backup plan then I would leave-if not figure one out before leaving

    If it is a 4 year contract and you dislike it after a few months, then I would quit. Sometimes those good opportunities are not meant to be. Quit, move on and find something better.
    Good luck my friend.

    There is no point in being miserable for the next four years. Find something you want to do that is beneficial to you (not just financially).

    Really hope you find something you love. I wish you a long success (:

    what sector are you in like IT or Finance and what is your daily routine is there any particular thing that stress you out? Maybe it's good to try and fix it before looking at quitting because it's a great opportunity you don't just toss it away when someone else could've had it
