Are you unhappy in your job and feeling guilty when you know 1000's of people have lost theirs and would do anything to have yours? Are you feeling trapped? You're not alone.
Before taking the leap to the next opportunity, you need to figure out what is causing your unhappiness. You don't want to take the leap, then find yourself in a similar situation at the next stop. Before you move on, think about what is holding you back.
Identify whether you've lost fulfillment, your misaligned with company values, you're suffering from a toxic workplace, etc.
Use your strengths. Your strengths give you momentum. If you're not using them, it may be time to re-evaluate.
Spice up your role, whether this means long term or short term. Is it worth a discussion to change up up your responsibilities? Improve your work experience. Consider getting together virtually with colleagues or taking on a new role internally within a group or task force. Don't stop socializing.
Start something new. Your very own gig.
Wanting more from your career is not something to feel guilty about. You're excellent talent and you deserve to be happy in your career.
