10 Things That You Should Consider Before Making a Career Move Part 2

Hi, I’m Taylor Maurer, Founder and Senior Managing Partner at Heavy Civil Resource Consultants Back with another two-minute Tuesday tip of the week.

This is our second video in our 10 questions to ask yourself before you trade in your current employer for a new one series. To access the entire list just look for the article link in the notes below in review. Our first question was why am I considering leaving my current company? And you can find that video here.

The second question to ask yourself is, have I addressed my issues with my superior at my current company or someone who has the authority to remedy my issues? If your employer is unaware of the reasons for your dissatisfaction, they won’t have the opportunity to make any changes. Therefore, it’s essential to communicate your concerns in a constructive and professional manner. By doing so, it gives your employer the chance to address the issues that are bothering you, potentially leading to a more positive work environment.

If you’re considering leaving your current job solely due to dissatisfaction with your salary, it’s important to have a candid conversation with your employer before making any decisions. Express your concerns about feeling underpaid and give them the opportunity to address the situation. By doing so, you may find that your employer is willing to compensate you more generously, thus alleviating the need to seek new employment. One valuable resource to consider is an article that I wrote, 5 Tips from Strategies for Negotiating Office Offers and Raises. You can find that in the notes below as well.

In conclusion, addressing job dissatisfaction with your employer is a crucial step in seeking resolution before considering a job change. Open communication and negotiation can often lead to positive outcomes, so it’s important to take proactive steps in resolving any issues you may be facing. Remember, your employer may not be aware of your dissatisfaction unless you communicate it to them. By taking the initiative to address your concerns, you not only give your employer the opportunity to make a positive change but also empower yourself to seek more fulfilling and rewarding work experience.
