Parents keep nagging me about jobs
I graduated college almost a year ago & my parents literally continue to pester me about finding a secure full time job. Trust me, I've been trying to find a stable legit job. I even went in depressed mode when I was just working part time feeling as though all my job applications were being tossed into a dark abyss. Luckily I was able to find a full time job...for now. I am working in an office filling in for someone who is on a leave of absence. Whenever this person comes back I could be out of a job but its good job experience & the first break I caught.
I am still applying for career jobs like crazy hoping to catch a break & get called for an interview but my parents keep pestering me about federal jobs. My dad works a federal job so he's pushing me to do the same. They send me all the job postings they find -some I can't even apply for because I am not a current federal employee. It bugs me. Yes I get you want you child to find a good job, become financially stable & move out of home again but its not as easy as they think with this current economy. I think they think I'm just being lazy & not trying...when in reality I AM trying its just catching a break is the hardest part. Its getting to the point where I easily get annoyed & feel as if they are pushing their job desires onto me. I even get into arguements with them about it & it causes a lot of tension between us. Today I told my mom to actually read the job posts she is sending me because if she did she would realize that I can't even apply to them since I am not a current employee for the company. I told her that she is sending me useless information. She got all huffy puffy & said that they are trying to help me & said they want me to find a good job so I can move out because they are tired of my attitude towards them. I get both sides. I'm not trying to be ungrateful but seriously? Panicking & not being able to catch a break in the work world is already hard on me as it is. Its not like its my choice to not have a stable job & to be 20+ living at home with my parents. If I had it my way I'd have a secure job & be financially stable enough to live on my own. I just wish they would stop forcing all these job positions on me, especially when they are jobs I don't realistically see myself doing or in a place I couldn't see myself living. I mean I understand they are trying to help me but there is a fine line between giving advice & forcing.
Ugh, I don't know what do you think about this situation?
