If You Want to Quit, Start Looking Now


Robby

An old joke by the comedian Drew Carey says: “Hate your job? They have a support group for that now. It’s called ‘Everyone’ and they meet at the bar.”

Like practically all humor, it’s partially funny because it’s mostly true. In a very recent study, about 43% people are unhappy with their current job. And by the way, those are the people who are brave enough to tell the truth. How many of the remaining number just don’t feel like speaking up for whatever reason?

Now here comes the rest of the story. If nearly half of all people also don’t like their current job, when it comes time to find a new one you are going to have some serious competition. Not only are you fighting it out against others who are unemployed, but the playing field consists of people who have a job they don’t like and are willing to quit. They may have more negotiating power than you, since they still have a paycheck!

The best time to start looking for a new job is while you already have one. This goes double if you don’t like your current job. You need to take that stress and pour it into finding a better place to be. That’s the best option for anyone trying to grow themselves and their career.
