Ten Signs You Shouldn't Quit (Just Yet)

Ten Signs You Shouldn't Quit (Just Yet)

Norma Pauline Mushkat Gaffin, Monster Staff Writer 

6. The Company Fixes Its Problems

Everyone makes mistakes, and true virtue lies in how they’re corrected. If your company actively tries to mend itself, then you know it’s getting ready for the long haul.

7. The Company Promotes from Within

This goes back to employees being a company’s biggest asset. Does your company reward its workers and promote accordingly? That shows the company is willing to invest in you, and your investment in the company could have a payoff.

8. The Company Is Open About Its Financials

If your company shares only its successes, beware. But if your employer shares information around profits and loss, it’s inviting you to be a partner and is empowering you with the information you need to help.

9. Your Accomplishments and Contributions Are Noticed and Valued

Do you get credit for the work you do? No one should be taken for granted. If your employer notes your accomplishments, you’re more likely to move up or be able to take on more challenging projects.

10. You Look Forward to Monday

Everyone enjoys a day off, but do you look forward to returning to work? Whether it’s your job, your colleagues or the office culture, if there’s something that stops you from dreading Mondays, you’ve struck career gold.

Improve Your Situation

If you realize your current employer and position are not right for you, you need to take some action. Start with these four steps:

1. What’s Wrong?

Are you unhappy with your current job, or are you concerned for your company’s future? You need to determine the current problem before you can find a solution.

2. Assessments

Introspection can only lead to more clarity where your career is concerned. Look into taking career assessments to discover where your interests and aptitudes meet, and determine what type of workplace culture would be best for you.

3. Update Your Resume

Even if you’re completely content in your current position, you should always keep your resume updated. You never know what might happen next, even at a thriving company.

4. Network

Talking to people is one of the best ways to learn about job openings or even a new field you had never considered for yourself. Don’t just join professional organizations, but be an active member. You need to put yourself out there and take some risks to find the job that’s right for you.
