Are you in the wrong job? While no job is perfect, here are some signs that yours could be a bad fit from the experts at Monster.com:
- First: You’re ashamed of your job. It may sound obvious, but if you can’t bring yourself to tell people what you do for a living, you’ll never get satisfaction from your job.
- Another sign that you’re in the wrong job: You’re overwhelmed by your workload. We all feel overworked at times, but If you never have time to finish all the tasks assigned to you, you’ll leave work feeling anxious, agitated, and emotional. Experts say that can take a toll on everything you do outside of work!
- You’re also in the wrong job if your skills are stagnating. For example: During the recession, lots of people took jobs that they were overqualified for, just to pay the bills. .
- One more sign you’re in the wrong job: You’re not learning anything new. Experts say that just like life, your job should be a constant learning process. That’s why many companies offer mentoring programs, where they constantly develop and train staff for future promotions. Others encourage workers to attend conventions and seminars, where they can learn about new trends in their industry.
