I often attended it, but I haven’t been able to these past months due to my schedule.
Luckily, my colleague agreed to cover my shift so I would be able to attend this Saturday’s meeting.
Before the meeting, I have to come up with answers with the following tough questions:
1.What is troubling me in my current situation?
My working style at my current company. I’ve been working there for almost 5 years but I have doubts on my job’s value. Recently, I’ve been having difficulties with too much work. I have several kinds of tasks which I need to do on my own. Actually, I like working alone, but it’s too much. I think my salary is not commensurate to the amount of work I do. I tend to lose much of my private time.
2.What are it’s merits for me to consider staying in the status quo?
I can solve some problems on my job and I find it interesting.
Updating websites and organizing seminars are sometimes fun. I also like my company’s location and building. I respect my boss and most of my colleagues. If I can improve our company’s revenue, I might get a higher salary but it would require sacrificing a lot of my private time. Unfortunately, I have no interest in doing that.
3.What will happen in the future if I don’t change things?
I’ll probably regret it if I don’t change jobs. I’ll fail to improve my skills and won’t get new experiences. There is a tendency for me to get demotivated.
4.What options do I have?
I should broaden my horizons and ask my friends for their opinions. I might also negotiate my tasks and life/work balance with my boss. Finally, I can start searching and applying for a new job.
