When most people apply for a job it is based on credentials (qualifications), and the pay rate offered. Which makes total sense. But it’s very common for that excitement of having a new job to disappear sooner than expected.
You get in the door and you realize:
There is a glass ceiling.
The position is more (or less) work than explained.
You start taking work home; thinking dreadfully about work after hours, replaying conversations between yourself and coworkers, tossing and turning at night because you don’t want to go in.
These examples may be spot on, or they may be exaggerated depending on your personal situation. But one thing is for certain more and more people are leaving their jobs with what has been called the “Great Resignation.”
I’m different. And I’m not being cliche when I say this. When I held a secular job before I applied, I would research the company background, look up the employee satisfaction rates, and I knew my goal would be to move up in 3-6 months.
When I found myself no longer satisfied with what I thought the job was initially offering, I made an exit plan. I researched similar positions that paid more, as well as higher positions I could be hired for based on my credentials.
Being self employed is not for the faint of heart. Heck, truthfully, being an entrepreneur isn’t for everyone. But if you are looking to step out on faith and work for yourself plan it out in a calculated manner.
