Don’t Jump the Gun Leaving a Job You ‘Hate’

In an article for Fortune, Ian Siegel asks you to reconsider whether your current job is irredeemably awful (if you feel that way in the first place). He says to ask yourself a few questions first. The, ahem, first of them is, “Are you miserable?” As in genuinely miserable, where you dread having to go to work every single day. It could be you are just having a temporary rough patch.

The second question is, “Are you making enough money?” Often, “enough” money is a subjective thing. If a job can afford for you to have a roof over your head and food in your stomach, maybe that is “enough” money, and you should stress less about finding a job that gives you more of it. The last question then is, “Are you getting mentored?” Maybe there is a supervisor or colleague in the business who can help you push through your rough patch and continue growing without having to hop ship.
