4 Signs You Feel Stuck in Your Career Journey

Do you feel stuck in your career journey and you think there is a need to grow? Here are some signs to show you are stuck in your career and ways to grow.

Do you feel your work is no more meaningful to you or the industry you work in has drastically evolved or do you sense a change of interest in your career life? To sum it all… “Are you stuck” or “Just in a rut”? 

After reviewing feedback from our clients and having some conversations, we realized that most people do not know what they want, what they are good at, and what their passions are. People who find themselves in this dilemma find it very difficult to progress in their career journey. 

Here are four signs you are stuck in your career.

 1.Your Physical & Mental health Are on a Steady Decline

Knowing how to take care of your mental health when you feel stuck in your career journey is one of the best things that will help relieve you from whatever way you feel. It is important to take a break and reminisce on things that make you feel better. Accept yourself, be hopeful, be optimistic, try to improve on your personal growth, and be open to a new experience. We believe doing this will help you to find yourself and help you know what your interests are and how that can have a positive impact on your career journey.

2. You Wish to Have a Career Adviser or Seek Career Services

Career coaches help you find or have a steady incline in your career journey. Once you search yourself and know what you want and you realize you lack the skills to do it, having a career counselor will be of help. After acquainting yourself with some skills and knowing what exactly you can do best, Jobberman welcomes you with an open arm to assist you with having a good CV to land you your dream job. 

3. You have no Clue of Your Future Career Goals

The best way to solve this problem is to do or study something that presents to you a wide range of opportunities. Also, when you experience such a thing, you should stop looking at the future as 5 to 30 years down the road. You should always know that your future time is later today or tomorrow. This means that you should focus on your future and experience it each day. We believe this will offer you tremendous growth and a wide range of opportunities. 

4. Feeling Bored With Your Tasks?

Do you often feel burnt out about your work? Yes, that is a sign that you are bored with your tasks. One way to overcome this feeling is to have a to-do-list. This will help you stay on top of vital information and projects and deadlines. Doing this will help you acquaint yourself with what to do, keep you busy and help you feel overwhelmed in what you do. 

How Do You Move From Being Stuck to Growth?

The first thing to do is to start with the right perspective. If you went into your dream job with a strong perception that “the work is difficult or that you can’t make it”, there will be nothing you can accomplish there. You may fail to appreciate the opportunities the job presents and may not be able to explore. Likely, you will not enjoy your work. Therefore, we advise that you start your career journey with a fresh and right perspective to help you to be professionally inclined and grow in your career journey.

Wondering How To Join Your Dream Team?

 After knowing all these, it’s time to join your dream team. Jobberman Ghana offers job seekers a platform where they can have access to vacancies in their preferred industry. Yes, you can join your dream team without paying a penny. All you have to do is to create a job seeker account and apply to jobs that match your interest or qualifications.
