Got dream job now not sure I want it

Post by nattynat19 » Wed May 16, 2018 1:37 pm


I have recently been successful at gaining a position as a trainee high intensity therapist. This is something I’ve worked towards for the past few years. Re-registering as a Mental health Nurse so I have a core profession, Completing a top up degree in mental health and giving up my job to study. However, I recently started working for a local college teaching health and social care as a temp and I love it. I can be creative, I’m knowledgeable about the subjects, I get on well with the students and staff, hours and holidays are excellent. I have been offered a permanent contract at the college so now I’m in a dilemma. Do I leave a job I love for the job I have always wanted? What are people’s experience of being a trainee high intensity therapist? Is it what you expected etc? And what’s your work/life balance?

If you love what you've been doing, why not postpone the training and see whether you still love it in a year?
