Not everyone likes the first job they get. You have to make the best of it, learn what you can, make friends, net-work and be cheerful and helpful - EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO PRETEND!

Don't gripe and bitch openly about your job. When you leave that first job you may need good recommendations from the supervisors that you worked for. If you exhibit a negative work ethic no one will want to hire you for a better job!

Do the best you have with with what you got! You are young and you have your whole life ahead of you. Stick it out and do a good job. Sometimes very good opportunities come up that you never imagined would ever happen and you are the right person for the job!

{Info from Google: Wudang Mountain,also known as Taihe Mountain, in the northwest of Hubei Province, is perhaps the best known of China's Taoist holy mountains and also known as the site of an ancient architectural complex both at home and abroad. It was listed by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 1994.

Wudangshan stretches 400 kilometres and covers an area of more than 30 square kilometres. Wudang Mountain's beautiful scenery of tranquil valleys juxtaposed with precipitous peaks offers three main areas of interest to travellers :Ancient Taoist temple complex, Wudang kung fu, Spectacular natural scenery. Etc. Etc.}

(Sounds like an interesting place to work at.)

Hello Buding

Organise your life, so u can do what u want, at much as possible.
Start by deciding, what it is u want to do. Then aim at it.

Apart from a very small minority (probably not even 1% of the world population), most people do the sort of job that is not what they would classify as 'ideal'. Jobs are a necessarity to pay the bills, but should not be a goal in life, the goal should be all the hours outside of the office. Your place of employment seems fascinating, praise yourself lucky that you're not doing the same sort of boring work in a dusty office in a suburban place in Europe or America!

Hey everybody gotta start somewhere. I worked for my dad when I was 8 till I was 15, I hated this job so much. At 16, I got my first real job and I hate it and feel so miserable there. This summer, I worked as a fruit seller in a small stand near my aunt motel and I hate it because there's so many insects outside and the customers pissed me off. Now, I worked in Tim Hortons and I like it there and I got the job that I wanted because I have experiences from my past jobs. Keep your job for a little while to get expenrience, it'll be worth it someday.

i am glad that you are thinking about it when you are only 21... when i was 21, i knew nothing but needed a job to survive. Take time and well equip yourself which will allow you to take the one you want when the chance is approaching you. Good luck
