I am managing a subsidiary of my father's business which I was hesitant to join but because of family pressure I had to.
My relationship with my father is not very good so once a while I got to hear things which hurt my confidence and self esteem as I am reminded that I am nothing without his support. I admire a father's support to his children but putting it bluntly in insulting manner takes away its beauty.
I am 35 and I feel that if I carry on like this I would be a man with no confidence and zero self esteem in next 5-10 years, my perception of a future is very depressing.
Prior to joining this business, I had worked in several startups of mine for 5 years, so I can say, I got zero corporate experience.
Now, I want to know if I look for a job at this stage will I be accepted? and what job options can i go with? I m ready to do internship without any expectation of reimbursements.
Plz help me.
Ans: It sounds like you are in a difficult situation, and it's understandable that you're feeling discouraged and lacking in confidence. It's important to remember that you have skills and experience from your previous work in startups, and those can be valuable in the job market.
If you're interested in looking for a job, I would encourage you to start by updating your resume and reaching out to your professional network to see if anyone knows of any opportunities. You could also consider working with a career coach or job placement agency to help you identify potential job options and prepare for interviews.
As for what job options you could pursue, that depends on your skills and interests. Some options could include roles in marketing, sales, customer service, or operations. You could also consider pursuing a job in a field that interests you, such as technology, healthcare, or finance.
Finally, it's important to remember that there is no shame in starting out in an entry-level role or doing an internship to gain more experience. This can be a great way to build your skills and confidence and open up new opportunities in the future.
Whatever you decide to do, make sure you're taking care of yourself and seeking support from friends, family, or a therapist if needed.
