When you’re ready to quit your job it’s usually because you’re completely fed up. You’re over the fact that you’re doing mundane work that no longer challenges or excites you.
When you look in the mirror you see a woman who is full of self-doubt, confused, sad, and feeling lost & insecure about what she wants in her career…and how to get it!
You’re fed up with feeling ready and worthy of a promotion, but never getting it.
You see in yourself a woman with high potential who’s now burned out and feeling less ambitious because she doesn’t have the space for more.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
You know the other folks you see achieving success in their role, seemingly loving the company they work for, getting promoted and sharing how much they adore their boss?
That can be your reality too! How do I know? I’ve gone from feeling completely ‘over it’ to being that girl who wears all of the company swag and posts about their job openings and fun activities because, well…I loved what I did and the company I did it for.
But in order to get to that place, I had to gain confidence. I had to realize that achieving my goals was more within reach than I realized…but it was my responsibility to take ownership of my career by doing what needed to be done for ME to be happy.
For me, this meant looking inward to reflect on what I wanted out of my career, and how I wanted to be seen by others. It meant leaving a job of 7 years and pivoting into a career (my 5th pivot), advocating for myself in order to get what I wanted.
Now of course there are a number of reasons why you might quit your job, but the reason I made this pivotal change was because I was tired of taking a back seat in my career just hoping things would happen for me. I needed a fresh start, so I did just that and it completely changed the game for me.
But before you quit your job, I want you to consider these 4 things:
What is it that you really want for yourself?
What’s missing from your job today?
What have you tried in order to change your environment or get what you want (e.g. more support, exciting/challenging work, a promotion)?
Who have you leaned on for guidance and best practices (ideally this is someone who has ‘been there, done that’)?
Without clarity on where you are today vs where you want to be, and what has/hasn’t worked, you’re essentially flying blind.
Straight into a new role or company that may not bring you the sense of fulfillment or success that you’re seeking!
Don’t quit your job without clarity. And don’t underestimate the power of gaining more confidence at work. This will help you to improve your environment in your current job, or help you to excel in your next one - whichever path you end up choosing for yourself.
I’ve created a set of actionable steps you can take to gain confidence in your career, and I’m SO excited to share it with you 🙂
