I really don’t like my job.what can I do to help the situation?

Lady_S asked:


I received my Bachelors Degree in Political Science and another in Criminology, Law and Society, in June 2006. I took a year off to take the LSAT and apply to law school. I work at a family law firm as a part-time legal assistant, and I’ve been doing this kind of work for almost 3 years now. Considering I have 2 degrees, the pay is pretty crappy! But I didnt wanna get a full-time job and then say, “Babye, I’m going to law school now.” I thought that would be messed up and not very professional!
Anyways, I’m sooo sick of my job right now! All I do is file crap allllll freakin’ day! I’m a college graduate….I should be doing more and getting paid more! Yes, I know this was kinda my decision, but it just sucks, ya know!

What do you think I can do to ease this problem???
The only thing that I came up with and have done, is that I’m starting an ADDITIONAL part-time job as a Police Cadet, just until law school starts. That’s also part-time, and the pay isn’t great, but its something that I’ve always wanted to do! And it’ll just be until law school starts, of course.
I’m sorry….did you guys not read tis correctly??!! I said I’ve applied to LAW SCHOOL and I’m starting in August!!!
I just wanna know how to get thru this job for a few more months!

    Definitely go back to school if you want. Don’t worry about it being messed up. Do you know exactly what you want to do? That’s the hard part. Figure out what it is that you want and then figure out how to make that happen. School is probably the best answer though.

    If you don’t like your job look for another one. Life is too short to be unhappy. But at the same time you should realize that it is always going to be something no matter where you go. All jobs have some issue or another. You just need to decide are there more goods than bads about your current job. And if you have time on the side try to look for another one in the process.

    Just ask for more responsibilities and at the same time ask for a raise. Say that you need to think more of your future and law entails a lot more than just filing. Let them know you are ambitious and would like to get the most out of the job as possible. The more you learn now the better it will be for law school and as a lawyer.
