Finding a new job that is more rewarding can be a part of growing in your career.
Finding a new job that is more rewarding can be a part of growing in your career. To do so, you need to look at what makes your current job fulfilling and then find another one that has those same qualities. If money isn’t everything for you—and it isn’t for most people—then it’s important to focus on finding a more satisfying position instead of simply looking for one with better pay.
A good way to start looking for this type of position is by creating a list of all the things about your current job that make it worthwhile or enjoyable, such as:
- The salary
- The benefits package
- The company culture (or lack thereof)
Better pay is not the only thing you should look for in your next job.
In addition to better pay, you should look for jobs that give you a sense of purpose, challenge you, allow you to grow, and that will allow you to work with people who are not only competent but also enjoyable to be around. A job like this might be difficult to find in the first place – but once you do find it, it’s likely worth making some sacrifices in order to keep it.
Another thing many people don’t realize is how important location is when choosing your next job. You may not have much choice over which city or state your new employer has its headquarters located in – but if this isn’t an issue for you then by all means take advantage of offers from companies located near your hometown or somewhere else close by (or even convenient). If relocation is something that concerns or even scares you however then make sure the company has offices throughout North America so that moving won’t necessarily mean leaving behind friends and family members who are already established where they live now!
The stress of being unhappy at work can spill into other areas of your life.
The stress of being unhappy at work can spill into other areas of your life. It may cause health problems, hurt relationships, negatively impact sleep and performance at work, lead to bad decisions and mood swings.
It might be easier than you think to get a new job. You may want to consider informational interviews or networking with helpful contacts before quitting your current job.
While unemployed benefits are available in some states and you could receive severance pay from your previous employer (which they’ll likely be happy to provide), research income potential at potential jobs before quitting your current one!
Being discontented with your current situation can lead to making impulsive decisions and burnout.
- Being discontented with your current situation can lead to making impulsive decisions and burnout.
- Stress is a major contributing factor in suicide, so it’s important to take steps to reduce the amount of stress in your life as much as possible.
- People who feel like they don’t have control over their work environment are more likely to quit their jobs than those who feel like they do have control over their work environment, because those without control may not feel invested in the job or company.
- A new job can boost your confidence, especially if you are doing something more creative or rewarding than what you did before.
There are many steps you can take that will help you find a job you enjoy without quitting impulsively.
If you want to quit your job but don’t know what to do after that, here are some steps you can take to find a new career:
- Do your research. Researching careers is the first step in finding one that’s right for you. There are many websites that offer resources on this subject, such as CareerBuilder and Glassdoor.com. You’ll want to look at several different types of jobs so that you’re aware of all your options and don’t limit yourself when searching for work later on (and because every industry has its pros and cons).
- Use your network—and not just family members! If possible, ask friends who work in fields they enjoy whether they have any leads on open positions at their companies or places where they might be able to get an interview (if they’re willing). They may even be able to introduce your name directly into the hiring manager’s ear if he/she sees fit; it never hurts!
You should make an informed decision before quitting your current job, but you might find it is the right choice.
- You will make more money
- You will be happier
- You will be more productive
- You will have more free time
- You will have more energy (and not just because you don’t have to wake up early for work anymore)
- You can spend more time with family and friends, so everyone wins!
