Kick Start Your Career!

November 2nd, 2012

Sometimes it is impossible to avoid a career burn out, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer quietly. There are many things you can do to give your career a jolt that can help improve your outlook and performance. Here are some tips to keep in mind when you’re feeling a little down about your job.

  1. Understand your motivation. What is it that makes you happy? Do you like to have money and success? Do you want name recognition? Do you like to help other people? Knowing what gets your blood pumping is important to understanding why you’re sluggish now. Give yourself motivational goals to work toward to get your career moving in the right direction.
  2. Establish challenges. There is no success fairy that will come down and reward you with promotions and raises. Sure, your employer might provide these things as you continue to perform up to expectations but that shouldn’t be the only reward you have. Give yourself your own career challenges.
  3. Stay focused. One of the most important things is to make sure you don’t let your employer or co-workers know that you are burning out. Make the career change when it is right for you; don’t allow yourself to get sloppy and give your company a reason to let you go. Keep a positive attitude at work. If you can’t find things at your current job to motivate you, start looking for another one but don’t let your current work suffer.
  4. Don’t burn bridges. No matter how frustrated you get at your current job, never ever walk out. Keep your cool and if you need to remove yourself from the situation give them proper notice and work it out if they want you to stay. As much as you might be dissatisfied with this job it is important that you keep your references clean and positive or you might have more trouble finding your next job.
