Hope everyone is having a fabulous New Year!
I have been thinking about quitting my job for quite some time now and would love to hear all of your advice! I am currently working as a quality assurance engineer at a tech company and was a very high-performer until I realized I wasn't getting any fulfillment out of it. I voiced my interest in changing teams to a role that fit my strengths and skills but was declined multiple times due to "bad timing." The company's values do not align with mine and are filled with men. The fear of the unknown, rent bills, and outside influence are keeping me here yet I find myself wanting to impulsively quit almost every day now. I am 26, and have changed careers 3 times (if you count my degree) so I am a little skeptical. I'm currently studying real estate and envisioning a better/"free-er" future for myself but this 9-6 is causing horrible mental health issues and burnout. As the millennials say "release what no longer serves you." What do you ladies think?
As a group member, you are ready to learn how to lead, engage, and influence others into action. Making great strides in your profession never happens in a vacuum. It's a team effort that requires not just more knowledge, but a shift in behavior. This only happens within a supportive, accountability-based environment with the structure you need to succeed.
