Feeling lost and very discouraged. I can't seem to get the job i want. Should i wait out and take a break or just take up a contract job.

I am feeling quite discouraged not being able to find a job in my desired industry. I don't mind taking a contract job but i'm just wondering will my future employee look at my resume and think it's messy with so many different kind of positions?

I think nowadays many different positions and jobs have transferrable skillset, so i believe it is fine for you to try and explore into other job while gaining skills and knowledge and experience and at the same time, try to upgrade yourself or apply for your desired industry.

If you are feeling lost and discouraged, it is important to consider your options. Taking a break can be beneficial if you need time to relax and clear your head.

However, taking up a contract job may provide more immediate satisfaction in the short-term as it will give you an opportunity to build experience and gain valuable skills that could help with securing other roles in the future.

Ultimately, only you can decide which option is best for your situation but both choices have potential benefits that should be taken into consideration before making any decisions.
