CHANGING JOBS

CHANGING JOBSIt is common for ambitious young people to be impatient about growing quickly at the workplace. When they do not find it possible in their first job position, they seek opportunities elsewhere. They are ready to quit the job to move into a better position elsewhere. This could be justifiable in some cases, but not always as a rule.

The remuneration that a person might be getting should not be the only criterion to quit a job. Besides the money, the job could be offering very valuable job experience, which cannot always be evaluated in terms of money. It is also likely that the working culture and the atmosphere in the organisation could be such as that encourages young people to strive harder and reach greater heights. All organisations do’ not offer such facilities. The larger organisations might pay more or offer other facilities, but the work culture could restrict personal fulfillment from the job.

Never change a job just for the sake of changing it in the hope that it will help you grow. Employers are never happy about young people who jump from one job to another. In fact, a person who has changed jobs too often is labeled unstable and avoided by employers who seek stability and fidelity from the employees. Before changing a job, consider both the advantages and disadvantages of doing so. Closely study the perceived benefits. Very often they are illusory. One should move to another job only when one is sure that it will take him or her closer to the career goal
