This last April I was laid off from a job that I LOVED. I wanted to retire at this company. The position gave me multiple facets to work with, client engagement and counseling, implementation, training, employee development, and something extremely important to me — flexibility. 3 weeks after being let go, I got an offer from a competitor, and was excited to not have to leave my industry. Right next to where I worked before, MORE money (nice!), what could be wrong?
The culture. It’s very restrictive, no flexibility or creativity. Plus, after multiple requests for projects, l or ways I can help, I sit idle for most of my day.
I’ve decided to leave. I’ve only been here for 6 months but I know it won’t be a fit. I’m in a niche of a field where where title “Operations Manager” is universal but my experience is very restrictive. I want to get into Account Management or client side Global Mobility but I’m facing instant rejection.
Any tips on career titles or for what to look into? My top Gallup Strength is Competition! So I am looking for something that gives me opportunity to work a project, implementation, training etc.
