      Wanted to take a quick poll on whether people are currently happy where they are, or looking for a job somewhere. I’m feeling restless after a few years and considering looking around. I’m also wondering if this is normal regardless of whatever job you have.

      I’ve made the votes anonymous so that people can vote more freely on this potentially sensitive topic, but feel free to make your opinions known!

      I’m happy where I am….for now. That option was perfect for me!

      My issue is actually not having enough time to do the things I want…. I’m pretty much 100% working all the time. It sounds really sad but when I force myself to take time off I have no idea what to do with myself.

      Those actively looking – keen to share your reasons to move?

      @zee I wasn’t sure from your statement whether it’s a good or a bad thing?

      Is time spent on this forum count as work?
      I think you are too driven to rest, and maybe you need a gf to figure out what you should do with your free time. Dating suddenly gives you lots to do :p

      Oh since I posted on this thread I should also reply to the original question.
      I am currently looking but I do have some disjoint experience here and there, it was mostly contract work so when I get a job it will be my 4th job after I graduated and I graduated June 2011.

      I did this mainly because I am young and I can afford to experiment (still live with my parents), right now I am looking for a job I can settle down for a few years with because;
      a) I need to accumulate equity
      b) I need good solid experience if I want to do my M.Fin the university I want to go to requires 2 years work experience and operate under the assumption that you continue to work
      c) Contract work early in your career means that the company isn’t as invested in you as much as full time employees

      @Tonypetrunin – it’s a great position to be, CFA will add a little more shine to the Masters 🙂 I did the same thing too a few years ago, when we were right in the middle of the crisis, with my 20% swing in equity prices daily is the norm…. So I can say it does pay off, good luck!
