If you spend your weekdays at work counting down the remaining hours until the weekend, if you are unsatisfied with the work that you accomplish, if you feel unfulfilled with line of work that you’re currently into, then you are probably showing premature signs of an unhappy employee. Getting eager for the work week to end, and impatiently waiting for your paycheck may mean that you are one of the millions of employees who are unsatisfied and discontented with their work. Based on actual studies, only 13% percent of people feel a deep sense of compassion and devotion towards their work, while the remaining percentage shows unhappiness and dissatisfaction towards their job, mainly because they work only for the pay check. They work through their long day of tasks and to-do lists without the satisfaction of doing what they really want. They’re simply working to get through to the end of the month with their checks and bank accounts waiting.
When this problem arises, you might want to consider looking for a new job, or better yet, a new career. Think outside the box. Be on the lookout for possible options and new career paths that will fit your skills, capabilities, and work ethics.
Right after graduating from college, more often than not, the first thing that comes into the new graduates’ checklists is: get a job. Some newbies and fresh graduates tend to apply to almost all job postings that they come accross. The reason? They just want to land a job, they’re excited to get their first pay check, or they are simply eager to start building their career.
After landing your first job, during the first few months of being the new and nervous employee, you feel excitement. You fall in love with the idea of actually “working”. But then you come to a point where you go asking yourself the question most often intrigues us: are you happy with what you are doing? Anxiety and problems arise when you get unhappy a few months into your job. You suddenly ask yourself a lot of questions. Is this the right job for me? Is this the right career path for me?
But hold it, don’t fret. There is still hope. You can always want to look for a new job, or try exploring a new career. The opportunities and possibilities are endless. Do not be afraid to take risks. Do not hesitate to explore your options. Assess yourself, know your interests and identify your strengths and weaknesses. The right job is simply out there waiting for you.
