Took The Wrong Job? There Is a Way Out.

We all make mistakes in different spheres of our life. When we do something wrong in relationships with our friends or family we put at risk the trust. When we make the wrong career move we put at risk our future professional success. Obviously, we are not going to take about relationships or personal issues, but we would like to cover the subject of taking the wrong job. Maybe you were desperate to obtain any kind of employment but when you started working you realized that this was a wrong move. Such things happen and you don't have to spend the next 5 years paying the high price for one wrong choice that you made out of desperation. It is very important not to stay at the wrong job not only because it can negatively influence your career but also because it has a negative impact on your whole life. At Prime-Resume we decided to share some of the practical tips on what one can do if the wrong move has already been made?

Making The Right Career Turn

Confused-person-Design-Pics-Inc-Rex-Features-blogAre you struggling every morning because going to work seems like hell? Are you longing to live through to Friday night enjoying the expectation of having two days off? Are you the first one to leave the work? If the answers are positive then it is very likely you took the wrong job. In situations like this most employees don't know what to do because they are already frustrated because of the wrong career move. But one doesn't have to hurry because that's when one can damage one's career even more - by doing other moves that could jeopardize your next moves. The first thing then when you realized you had taken the wrong job is to calm down and develop a plan. A plan is something that will keep you on track and provide a bit of confidence that you are going to rule everything out.

Start with identifying what specifically you don't like about the job that you currently have. Is it the nature of your responsibilities? Maybe it is the philosophy of the company or the internal culture of the team? Or are you just annoyed with the leadership style of your manager? Whatever the cause you have to know it because further actions have to be based on something specific that makes you frustrated at work. As a matter of fact, you may have a chance to change something and continue working in the company being a happy employee. For example, you can change the department where you might be a better fit. Or you could take on a new project that seems like what you can successfully cope with. So making the right turn is not necessarily quitting the job, sometimes it is just about changing the circumstances. However, not always changing the circumstances can help. Besides, there are things that cannot be changed and as a result, you should start thinking about leaving. Well, probably the worst thing you could do is just walk out and quit. Don't start a riot by demonstrating to all of the managers and employees that you are unhappy and are going to find a new job.

The best thing is quietly to start networking. But don't quit until you find something. Finish the project, do your best while you are still in the company. Doing the opposite can damage your relationships with people in the company that might pay off in the long run. It is important to leave on a good note. Keep that in mind when making the right turn.

Thank you for the wonderful resume and layout. I am pleased with the work. My job search will kick into high gear in December so I will probably be using cover letter service then. Please add the gaduation date from Excel Technical college as 1998. Thank you so much.

Well written and it doesn't concentrate on the foodservice manager, a field I do not want to work in.

I wanted to let you know that I got the resume the very day you sent it out. My interview was scheduled for Tuesday and that same night, by 10 pm, I got an email from the principal informing me that the position was mine. The result was superquick!!! The job’s at the school I really wanted to be a part of. Thanks a million!!!
