I’m in my 5th year as auditor and am now Junior manager. After last busy season I decided I needed to get another job because I had a hard time coping with the stress and the hours during busy season. Contacted multiple recruiters and kept my eye on Indeed/Linkedin, applied for a couple of jobs, but at the end didn’t find a new job.
Multiple seniors quit during the past month and this is shaping up to be the worst busy season in years. It keeps me away at night just thinking about how fucked up my life is going to be in the next 6 months and wondering how likely it is I’m actually going to just burn out this time.
How do I cope with this? I am now coming at a point where if I would see a good opportunity at the beginning or mid busy season I might just take time out of my schedule to apply and maybe just leave mid busy season. I would feel pretty bad because I have a good relationship with the managers and partners and they would be royally fucked in the coming months if I leave. I’m just getting worried about my own mental wellbeing. Maybe I just need to vent, but does anybody have a good persective on this situation.
