You’re not going to like your job every single day. And a stressful week or two doesn’t mean you need to quit and move on.
There may be things you can do to improve your current situation. That’s why it’s so important to look internally before you change your external situation.
So, how do you know when it’s time to make a change?
On this episode of Career Confessions, I explain why a bad month at work doesn’t necessarily mean you’re on the wrong path, challenging you to analyze why you’re frustrated before you make a change.
I describe how to identify whether you’re unhappy with the actual work you do as opposed to the environment you’re in and discuss the danger in attaching your identity to the glamour of working for a well-known corporation.
Listen in for insight on addressing conflicts with coworkers and learn how to change what you can about your current role before you make an informed decision to leave altogether.
