I am recent science graduate. I am now employed with this insurance company just this week as a clerk in actuarial department. I thought through this, I can be promoted into a real actuary. This is the ONLY reason why I accepted the job in the first place. I asked my manager since I am not a math grad but science grad with a lot of maths maybe they can consider me on being an actuary and after all, they require no experience and fresh grads. He told me today that they DO NOT ACCEPT NON-MATH grads and made it clear that I wont be promoted with this position. It is a let down so I thought and made myself up today that I will not be staying since I dont wanna be just a clerk with my degree. I don't see any more reasons to stay in the company because:
- Office hours- non shifting which I like
- People are easy to get along
- Very low salary
- Very far from home
- Unpleasant toilets- there are no free tissues or some bloody hand soap
- Small office
- Will stay as a clerk forever which Im pretty sure I would never wanna do
- Not seeing myself improve in any way professionally and my maths are getting rusty and would defo will get rustier.
With these I had no second thoughts of resigning. I would like to tell my HR I would be resigning but have from the contract I have to work for 30 days before they pull me out. Id like to tell her that I would like a job more suitable to my qualifications. I also would like to point put that I am pretty sure am very overqualified by just being a clerk and I will not be able to use my skills in there. I know lots of basic programming languages, have decent grades, speaks multiple language, very good in math.
My question now if this is possible and what are the risk that I am taking? Would it reflect my reputation in a bad way? I really dont think I can stand on compiling bloody files and photocopy and staple documents! I really really need ur professional advises I dont know what to do. I am very new on the workplace.
