There will come a time in your career, maybe it’s starting or after a few years down the road, however you will question your interest of the job. So how do you decide if it’s still in the cards for you ? Is this considered a job now, and not the career that it once was ? Well, it may just mean that it is time to re-evaluate your career. Maybe you already mastered this job and you are too afraid to try something else. Maybe, you don’t realize it’s perfectly fine to leave and do something else.
Now to keep you on the top of your game and to really push you forward, try reevaluating your career once every 5 years.
This could be the perfect opportunity to get a MBA because you feel you want to go down the managerial track, and focus on people management.
The choice is yours, I’m sure you’ve heard of many stories of Wall Street Traders that wanted to leave the money scene and get into something completely different. It happens because their happiness was at stake so when it was time to re-evaluate their career, they took the high road. Maybe waiting 5 years wasn’t needed for them.
Please, make sure mastered everything you could possibly learn and hopefully moved up at least once in your area. If there is still some growth and you feel it is for you, take it. However, if you don’t enjoy the nature of your work anymore and waking up every morning is a drag, it’s time to spruce up the old resume and get a new job or a new spot in a different department. There are constraints for changing to certain industries and you must be prepared to do so. Most industries today require a great knowledge of computer skills. Would you be willing to start sharping your skills when you are off from work to prepare you for another job ? If so, please commit some time daily on it.
What you like now, is not what you will like in the future, so it’s ok to feel that a change is needed.
A higher up once told me that, some people will stay at a company hating it their entire life because they never open up their mouths, well people it’s time you don’t fall into those traps!
Now this may sound weird coming from a college student about careers, however I feel I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge from multiple co-workers.
