Unhappy in your job?

You have a job, but you are unhappy? Many employees are stuck in this unfortunate situation and know no way out. The question of whether your current job is what you want is not easy to answer. New skills are increasingly in demand and job profiles are constantly being adapted. So where do you start to find your dream job?

Your boss makes your work difficult and you are strongly dissatisfied. But is a troublesome boss reason enough to change jobs? Motivation left your job a long time ago and you know you should do something about it. The enthusiasm for your job has been lost and there are no development opportunities. Because of your job, you also don’t have a good work-life balance. Dissatisfaction is making itself felt and you know that your precious time could be better spent and that you are up to greater challenges. Inner resignation has thus begun. But where do you start? How can the professional situation be optimised and what do you still need to find out before you can reposition yourself in the job market?

Is it just a phase?

Everyone has a down phase, you’re in a bad mood and the work performance is barely kept up enough. But how do you know that the dissatisfaction is not just a phase? Answer the following questions:

  • Do I find long-term pleasure in my job or am I dissatisfied with it?
  • Does it reflect what is important to me (my values)?
  • Can I use my strengths?
  • If I am honest with myself, do I believe that I (or this situation) can really be successful?
  • What opportunities do I lose if I keep this job?

After evaluating these questions, you can get a good initial assessment of your job satisfaction. Determine that you are dissatisfied with your job and no longer out.

How did it get this far?

Finding the trigger for job dissatisfaction is often difficult.
According to Statista, poor pay is one of the most common reasons and is also the number one reason for a career change.

What is your personal reason for changing jobs? Do you find yourself in the chart?
