Now that the holiday crunch is over and the new year upon us, many professionals take the time to look at where they are in their careers and consider if it’s where they want to be.
Are you getting what you want from your career?
Are you happy?
Most people don’t love Mondays. Who wouldn’t rather spend time with friends, family and hobbies than go into the office? But that’s why they call it work! Still, you shouldn’t dread every day. Whether it’s the work, your co-workers or your boss that’s making you miserable, it may be time to look for the next opportunity.
Are you using your talents?
Are you in a firm that truly maximizes your skills and experience? People may complain about being busy and stressed at the office, but there is nothing worse than being bored or unappreciated at work. If there is no path to progress toward your career goals, it may be time to reassess if this job is the right fit.
Do you enjoy the environment?
Are you in a small firm where you wear a lot of hats, a large firm with a highly specialized workload or a legal department in a large corporation? Is that the ideal setting for you? If your work environment is not right for you, there may to be other opportunities out there to find a better fit.
