What to Do When You Took the Wrong Job

Posted on November 10th, by Henry Goldbeck in Career Development, Company News, Workplace Wellness. Comments Off on What to Do When You Took the Wrong Job

Henry Goldbeck’s reply to Gwen Moran’s question: “What to Do When You Took the Wrong Job”

1.) Consider that it is not uncommon to feel this way in the first few months of a new position.

2.) Ask yourself is this related to stress or performance anxiety in a new environment, position, etc.

3.) Can you openly discuss this with your manager?

4.) Is it related to specific problems on the job that can be solved?

5.) Do you have legal options?

If you are convinced that you need to look for another position, what are your options:

1.) Did you leave a job you really liked to take this position?  If so, has your previous employer filled your position?  They may welcome you back with gratitude and a raise.

2.) Start your job search discretely; this should not affect your resume negatively if it is not a consistent pattern.

If you have any more questions related to my answer, please let me know and I would be pleased to connect with you to share further.

Kind regards,
