Do you feel stuck? Unproductive? or you just want to grab your bag (purse) run towards the exit door of your current office and never come back? If you feel a combination of these three things then your gut is trying to tell you something.
Happy Friday…Dread Sundays
It’s quite simple really, are you eager for Fridays? And not the usual eagerness for the weekend but the eagerness that wants to push you out the door and makes you want to never comeback? You know the one that makes you forget that after Sunday comes Monday and you’re back to the job. It might be that you like the job and that the workplace isn’t the best fit or maybe it’s the other way around. You like the workplace but the job isn’t as fulfilling as you thought it would be.
Feel ignored and actually are ignored
Do you walk in the office and feel like what you do doesn’t matter? It can get quite depressing if what you do is ignored (for reasons other than low quality work output) and what you say doesn’t matter. If there is a reason for this, point it out to your manager and see if you can improve the situation. Make sure you’re thorough enough to get to the bottom of it and see if there’s anything you can do to improve things on your side. If there is no reason for the silent treatment and your work is ignored then maybe it’s time to register for Ethiojobs.net.
Is my position taking me anywhere?
Sometimes you enjoy a job at the start and you find out you’re really good at it but later on you keep on asking “Where is this going? and you can’t find an answer. Then it might be time for you to go. Being stuck in a dead end job is unfortunately an often occurrence and can be more damaging than seeming like a job hopper. It is important to find a job you love but it is also equally important to grow professionally in terms of skills and diversity in experience. The job market is far too unpredictable for you to just stick to one thing.
Before you quit though, consider evaluating every option and make sure that your judgment is free of clouding emotions.
