Let me ask you a straightforward question. Are you in the right job? Can you answer it accurately? You will need to answer few questions to yourself in order to get the perfect answer. JobMindz.com, India’s First Location Based Job Search Portal guides you in finding the right answer.
Here are the questions you need to ask yourself:
- Does your role make best use of your skills, your experience?
- Is there room for growth and career development?
- Is it challenging but also supportive?
- Do you get to do what you do best?
- Do you feel you belong?
- Are you valued?
Job review during your first job
If you’re just starting your career, it would be little hard. You might have unrealistic expectations. As people are working in a post-industrial world, employees can be seen adding more variables.
- Do you enjoy your job?
- Does it have a purpose?
- Is it meaningful?
One fact is that for thousands of years, work has been viewed as nothing more than a means to an end, a process through which a person can feed, clothe and also shelter themselves and their family. But in the modern workplace, even the most junior employee can be meaningful as long as you have an appreciation of the wider context.
You need to think about how your everyday tasks contribute to the work of the team, how your team supports the department and how your departmental contributes in the overall goals of the company.
If you can’t figure it out, ask your line manager
If a person doesn’t know then he may be more disillusioned than you. Establishing a ‘clear line of sight’, while not necessarily making a dull task should bring a little more satisfaction.
Yes and No list in a job review
One way to find out if you’re in the right job may be to add up all your responses to the questions above. If hopefully, there are more yeses than nos, it’s likely you are in the right job. But if it’s a no then you should look to change things. A true fact is life is too short- and the working week too long – to stay in a role that offers little prospect of fulfilment.
Jobs are of two categories – ones that give you energy or ones that take it away. You need to decide which is important for you adding more value to your life.
