i find my self on the possition that i miss my ex job. I used to work for cruise line industry, and i know that people who has been working on it will tell me that it`s a very hard and stressing job, but i miss the traveling, the knowing new people and my free time. I start working at the restorant, but after few years i worked at the on board shops, witch was a very nice change and nice job, i had a lot of time off... i do not want to go back because a start a little family, but i miss it big time.

Life go on whatever happens. Don't ever look back although the former looks more beautiful than the present. Search and find new things around us with new work in which we live. I'm sure we can be more happy for it

i sometimes miss my old job, working with horses. but life moves on, and i enjoy what i do now i've got a great boss and work mate. what about trying something else in travel, like being a travel agent. if you worked with cruise's you'd know the good places boats etc. which would give you an advantage on information. plus be able to stay with your family.

There is nothing wrong with you asking your old manager for your job back. You need to do what makes you happy and the sooner, the better before they find a replacement for you. They'd rather take you back than somebody new/ unexperienced. As far as the money, I would see what they have to say first. Call them up and see if they have any positions open. Explain that you've worked there before and see if they'll let you back. There's probably some position there for you and your particular skills.

good idea. first, you should try and do it. second, if you fail in asking your ex job, don't lose hope, you can go to another compangy that is the same as before. to be frank, it is very normal to miss ex job and ex things.

Somehow, I miss my old job. I used to teach English to Korean students. And I love doing this job. But sometimes we have to face some changes in our life. Since, teaching is not really my profession, I have to leave my job and focus on my real profession. I really miss my students.

I am still in my first job and I am a teacher. Teaching for me is a great experience and I love to interact with the kids. I teach people of all ages. And that's the best thing about it. I feel great when I think I am imparting knowledge onto someone else. I am also thinking of doing an MBA and if I complete that and go to business I think I would probably miss my current job.

I sometimes miss my old job - the people there were great. But the entire program got cut, so we all had to move on. :( Still, I was lucky to have that job. And I had a good time while I was there.

In fact I never miss any of my ex jobs before. I just love my current job as it gives me lots of freedom and my own space to do my own things while being attached to a full time day job. Just love it!

Taking a decision to move from one experience to another is one that must be done after much thought. Sometimes, it can "come back " to hunt you but if you did it consciously after much contemplation and sharing with persons who have your interest at heart then move on. Look back with pleasure at these wonderful experinces and use them as stepping stones for new ones. Perhaps you need to examine other job offers that will give you a mixture of some of those experinces that you miss so that you can still enjoy these peaks and at the same time widen your horizons. Please note marcelinka life is dynamic and perhaps you may be on to a new level. I am going to give you a new challenge! Are you ready? Here it comes Why not log these experiences and set up a websites about it and ask for comments and perhaps set up a new writing piece that could be a book later about "Your ex job". What do you think? Please respond. Think creatively!

There are two jobs that I miss very much. In 2006 I worked in a kindergarden, and I loved that job. It was a very international place, the children and my co-workers were from many different countries. It was very interesting, and I learned a lot about other cultures. I enjoyed working with the children, the language problems sometimes made things difficult, but at the same it was an interesting challenge and the children learned their new language (Danish) really fast. I also miss a job I had in a nursing home. It was such a great place. I had some very nice and caring co-workers and the residents were very nice, too. I really enjoyed working there and I always looked forard to going to work in the morning.

I miss my ex job too. Not my ex but the one I had before that. It's actually the same kind of job but in a very different place, better location, better co-workers, better projects, better contractors, even a better canteen. It's a pity I cannot go back, but I can really feel your pain about it. I think what's left for us is to go on, eventually our next job will be even better than the one we crave now.

for me, i miss my ex job very much. i graduated from a teachers' colleage, so i found a teaching job when i graduated. the school locates in a small town, but the quality of it is no2 in the city. last year, i had a badly cold and coughed for about 2months, after that, i have one of the teacher's professional disease-throat problem. so, i hate the job at that time. the next reason why i quited my ex job is that my boyfriend works in another city, and the company he works is good, he and i decide to set in the city. now, my boyfriend and i are together and happy as before, i choose another job.however, when my ex students chat with me online, i miss them very much, and my ex colleagues, ex school, ex job,...

hello marcel, I used to work in a call center, i left because i felt i needed a break. but it seems that i took a break longer than i should have been. you got lucky that you were on a ship and see the world within your eyes. the job hard and stressing too, but i guess i shouldn't have consider it as an excuse to leave the company, most specially if i was just on training.

Me, too! I miss my previous job in a bank. Most of us availed of the early retirement offer in 1994. It was a good-paying job although we have to work long hours at times especially during month-ends, quarter-ends and year-ends. It was a bit stressful working there as we have to work with the required promptness, best quality and accuracy to serve our clients. It was nice working there as I got to interact and get to know more people. (... and, it was one of the best paying banks at that time).
