Hey,guys!I haven't post much recently.You know,I got a new job,and it's my first regular job.I was excited about it.But now,I'm a little frustrated.They wanted me to expand the overseas market.But it seems so hard for me to do it alone.So I opened an ebay store on the behalf of my company.But no one ever bid my products.I just don't know why.I was thinking of quitting,I kind of have the feeling that this is not the right job for me.I love English,I thought this job could challege myself in English.But now,it turns out different from the way I thought it to be.Actually I don't even have anything specific for me to do.All I do the most is anwering those annoying calls that trying to earn from us. I've told the general manager that I want to quit.But he said I need to stay and see how it goes in the future.So I stay untill now.

hi dear gxnfly. it is a typically difficult situation. with a regular job performance is undoubtedly a prerequisite. one has to plan in advance and then implement the plan . the fair output has to be reflected and the results are to be available for anyone to see. especially for the boss. then only one can claim to be permanent or ask for extra facilities and powers and promotions . it is a self moving channel or else the exit door is wide open!!! try to put up a brave show. and all the very best!!

hi gxn! well, i am not really in your shoes, but i think i will have to agree with your general manager. give it some time and give it a try. try to accept the new opportunity as a new challenge. i think that is a very good opportunity presented to you, to open a new market overseas. not everyone is given the chance that you have got. so i say for now, do give it a shot. but if you are not compensated, talk to you GM about it. otherwise, you may miss on finding out your potential if you quit. take care cear and God bless you!

From my experience jobs are rarely what you expect them to be. If you are really unhappy then I would start looking for another job. Maybe give it another month and see if things improve. Since you've talked to the manager maybe he can help you get what you really need from this job.
