If you've reached the stage where you believe that a job move will solve your difficulties at your current work, it's time to update your CV and pay more attention to job offers. On the other hand, doubt is an intelligent person's right, so answer some questions honestly before hiring again.
1. When was the last time I had an excellent working day?
This inquiry aims not to make you feel any worse than you already do but to ask you to see the positive side of your working life.
Even if your entire day at work was not enjoyable, there was probably at least one task that you enjoyed doing. What did you like most about this aspect of your job? Who else has been a part of this?
Consider these things two days in a row, and then consider how you might experiment more frequently with activities you like doing that are not confined to job-related responsibilities. After a while, you may discover that you want to speak directly to your employer and convey your want to accomplish more with the joy and confidence that your abilities and experience provide you.
2. How has my role evolved since I began working for this company?
What activities irritate you the most? Consider the times when you persuaded yourself that your employment would be acceptable if it weren't for certain elements. In the future, how can you remove or decrease these activities? Is it possible to assign them?
3. How has my life altered since starting this job?
Perhaps it was you who changed, not the job. It is natural for things that were essential to you in the past to no longer be so. Significant life events, such as establishing a family or purchasing a home, might alter your viewpoint.
How do your present personal values align with your salary and the company's ideals for which you work?
4. What do I think of my employer and coworkers?
According to research, individuals quit their leaders rather than organizations. So as long as you can't replace your employer, consider what YOU can do to improve things.
5. What should be changed?
Consider this: If I were to manage this firm, which of the ideas shared with colleagues over lunch or those circulating among friends would be helpful to both you and the organization? These are the kinds of ideas that any decent employer would welcome.
6. What possibilities for personal growth do I have in my current job?
What talents do you wish to put to use more frequently? What new information do you want to absorb? Could you transfer to another department instead of looking for a new job? All of this, once again, maybe discussed with your boss.
Minor adjustments may sometimes have a significant effect. In any event, if the answers to these questions do not please you, it is vital to seek new work where you may improve while still being acknowledged professionally. Begin by conducting a job search!
