Careful What You Wish For…

by Kim Miller | October 11th, 2011

If you are currently in the market for a new job, you must do an number of things. The most obvious is to decide what it is that you wish for in a new position. Unfortunately, many job-seekers do not think this through very well. I find in my coaching and recruitment work that people more often frame their wishes in terms of what they want to leave in the old job, rather then what they want to go to in a new job. They do not go through a very thoughtful process.

While there may be legitimate needs to leave features of a current job, one should also stand back and consider: Is it that bad? Can I improve it – without leaving? Will it really be better somewhere else? It sometimes helps to think what the new job may be like after six months… or two years.

It is also worthwhile to consider why you came to your current position. What attracted you? What were you running from? Then consider what has changed. Is it you or the job? This may give you some perspective.

In short, take responsibility for your current situation. Then consider what you can change, in the current position, or somewhere else. This will help you to decide what you really want to do.
