Am I complainypants or do I need a new job?
« on: January 20, 2015, 06:58:35 PM »
I've been working at the same place since I graduated college in 2008.  The company is expanding and growing.  I've been promoted. Given more responsibilities.  I like my coworkers.  I like my boss.  What's the problem? 

I hate the work and I dread going in every day.  My job performance is suffering.

I have neglected looking because I have it in my head I can't make as much elsewhere.  Partly that's because I stumbled into my job and never really had to look before and partly because I would like to leave sales and that would mean probably taking a step back.  Advice?

That cycle isn't going to last. On the positive side, if you are good at sales you stand a better chance at your own business.

I'd suggest starting to look for other jobs, keep your ear out for other opportunities, that kind of thing.

askamanager.org has a lot of useful info about job hunting (and you'll also find you're not alone in not knowing whether to move to another job or not). Highly recommend reading her blog.

 

Wow, a phone plan for fifteen bucks!
