10 Things That You Should Consider Before Making a Career Move Part 6

Welcome back to another installment of our Two-Minute Tuesday Tip series! Today, we’re diving into a crucial aspect of career considerations that often gets overlooked: the relationships you have in your workplace.

In the heavy civil construction industry, where time is of the essence and demands are sky-high, your coworkers aren’t just colleagues; they’re like a second family. Founder and Senior Managing Partner at Heavy Civil Resource Consultants, Taylor Mauer, emphasizes the significance of these relationships.

Think about it: you spend a considerable portion of your life working alongside these individuals. So, it’s vital to ask yourself: do you genuinely enjoy their company, or do you merely tolerate them? Are your bosses receptive to your needs and ideas?

Changing jobs means more than just switching roles; it means bidding farewell to the relationships you’ve nurtured over the years. It’s not merely about making new friends; it’s about saying goodbye to old ones. So, consider the value of these relationships among your priorities.

Your coworkers and supervisors play a pivotal role in shaping your day-to-day work experience. Leaving them behind could have a profound impact on your professional life. Before you decide to jump ship, take a moment to revisit our previous question: how does the culture of your current company compare to the one you’re considering? Where do you see yourself fitting in better?

As always, it’s essential to carefully weigh all factors before making any significant career moves. At Heavy Civil Resource Consultants, we understand the importance of finding the right fit.
