some interesting stories. Thanks for sharing. I have just joined this website today.
i was recently in a senior position earning in excess of $140k per year. The job was busy..with some stress.
some recent organisational changes From a national manager (who was a mentor) to a state manager who knew nothing of my role.
i had been there 2.5 years and all of the team I started with had left, so I felt like I was being pushed as I was always being blamed for not providing my colleagues with their requirements. Two of my colleagues had no experience in the industry I worked in (technical) but still management blamed me and constantly defended my colleagues in experience.
i stared to get long emails from my colleagues to me with my manger ccd in blaming me for issues and what I had not done..
this behaviuour by inexperienced colleagues led me to a point where I had to re-sign..my manager would not do anything to resolve.
i had a car accident 4 months before this time where I was a passenger which I had ongoing physio appointments etc.
i have the reason of my resignation to my manager due to stress and being micro managed by inexperienced colleagues along with the car accident. He offered no assistance or remorse..
I managed to seek some counselling through my current accident claim..I have now been advised that I have depression and a mood disorder and have had for some time.
i am hopeful of working through these issues but I now don’t have a job and have two young children and my wife only works part time.
i have applied for over 40 jobs since 4th April but now feel guilty for re-signing a well paid job - Centrelink is a joke as I have run out of savings and putting everything into hardship mode before I consider selling car ..but still I can’t get anything to work with them..
i am trying to come up with different lines of opportunity or jobs to apply for but until Centrelink officially recognise me as now in a disadvantaged position I can’t get any help.
i am really at a wits end (my family is trying to help) but I get angry with the ‘system’ as people like me can just seem to easily disappear into a hole and never get out. No one would know..I have been told it’s my own fault for quitting without a job..I have never been unemployed before..
just wandering if anyone else had any ideas as everything is compounding - accident, new found depression, feelings of worthlessness because I can’t get a job, my wife now stressed out.
