CAN YOU SALVAGE YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYMENT SITUATION?
March 3, 2018
The answer will depend on a variety of factors, such as:
• The nature of your current dissatisfaction. Are you mad because your supervisor treated you badly, frustrated by a lack of autonomy at the office, disgusted by an inert corporate culture, etc.?• You career aspirations;• Your personal budget;• Your training;• How easily it will be for you to find alternative work (or income).
In some cases, frustrating workplace situations can be fixed.
For instance, perhaps a boss has been giving you a hard time. You could ask to transfer to a new department or work with another supervisor.
Maybe you are having a “square peg in a round hole problem.” That is, your team wants you to do work that is a poor fit for your skill set and/or passions. If so, perhaps your job roles could shift to make the work more appealing.
Of course, perhaps the situation simply is not salvageable, for whatever reason.
• How do you make the decision?• Can you reformulate your relationship with your boss and/or company?• What needs of yours are not being met, and how can you meet them?• Should you look for work elsewhere? If so, how?
