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.”
