Don’t Rush Into Job Change

Bad boss, dysfunctional co-workers, slowing business: Multiple things can make you run screaming from a job. But those circumstances often apply artificial urgency to a job hunt. Panic may make cause you to skimp on researching potential employers or fail to look inside your organization for more promising opportunities. Slow down. Consider how your feelings would change if your incompetent boss left or if the company secured an exciting new client. Ask people you trust for their advice, explaining that you’re worried about making a rash decision. When searching, don’t look for “any place better than here.” Instead, wait for the right offer.

  1. … wait for the right offer. This is amazingly true. The right offer isn’t the first offer, it’s the offer that will challenge, refine, inspire and create new opportunities.

    I changed jobs late last year after knocking back a hew high role opportunities and the mentality I had was “you have to sell this job to me equally as much as I have to sell you me”. Great insight Srini.
