Do you love your job? Not a lot of people do right now, it turns out.
In an article about surveys done by the Conference Board and career-intelligence.com, 83 percent of respondents said they were considering a job change with 61 percent stating they would definitely seek a new position when the economy improves.
The little girls snuggling up to Mrs. Lynch and the big smiles on all three faces are pretty much proof it’s a mutual admiration society in this 2nd grade classroom.
Mrs. Lynch says, “No one wants to be around someone who doesn’t want to be there, even a child. They know if you don’t like them or don’t like being with them. And if the teacher isn’t happy, the students positively are not.”
What can we suggest if you don’t like your job? Jeanine would say you need more pictures drawn for you and more hugs. Not a bad idea!
Dream and Prepare
I’d say if hugs don’t fit in your work day, dream and prepare for the future. I think it’s good that people change jobs, it energizes people and companies. But job change isn’t happening in this sluggish job market. Get ready for times to change. Get the training you need now. Dream about what you can do and where you’d like to work (dreaming is a form of planning.)
Start think of what you’re doing now in terms of accomplishments so you’re ready to write the important resume. Give accomplishments this format: P-A-R. Problem, Action, Result. What was the situation? What action did you take? What was the result in terms of money saved, work made more efficient, or profits generated?
