Have you ever been unhappy in your job but not quite sure why, and not sure what to do? Or maybe an unexpected opportunity emerged, and you decided to take a chance for it? Or maybe you just feel stuck, stressed, and depressed about the whole situation.
There are three general things that might be happening:
MAYBE YOU ARE BEING PUSHED OUT OF YOUR JOB?
✓ Maybe you have a new boss you really don’t like?
✓ Maybe there are unrealistic expectations, so you are working too many hours?
✓ Maybe you have been the victim of some sexual harassment?
✓ Maybe the company is having financial difficulties?
MAYBE YOU ARE BEING PULLED AWAY FROM YOUR JOB?
✓ Perhaps a friend has asked you to consider coming to his/her company that is more exciting?
✓ Maybe you decided to go back to school, finished your MBA, and now you are looking for a company that will value the graduate education?
✓ Maybe you want to live closer to your family, so you need to find a way to relocate?
OR MAYBE YOU ARE BEING PUSHED AND PULLED AWAY AT THE SAME TIME?
Whatever the circumstances are, it is important to take some time and actually sit down with yourself, someone in your family, or a friend and really think it through. What are your realistic options? What steps would you need to take?
This is a good example of where guidance from a career coach like me can be very helpful. It is good to have an outside, neutral perspective on your situation. If you are not sure, then you can’t really make some decisions on what you can do.
