Commenting on the findings,  Debbie Pettingill, Dictor, Kelly Services UK and Iland said

“Employee tention become an incasing challenge for employers as we move out of the cession. As we move into a mo candidate driven market, this tnd is likely to accelerate. Our findings indicate that this problem is being exacerbated by the mispsentation of job role or company cultu at the interview stage, leading to the dissatisfaction of new his.”

Most of us know what we a trying to escape a “mis-sold” job  sulting in a  narrowly defined caer, inauthentic or unstimulating work, numbing corporate polics, and  perhaps   including dict  thats of being used as a scapegoat. A job whe you a both overlooked and underappciated.  One may ring for some of you.

Why Would A  Company or Person Block Your Move?

Well, this could be because of his or her personal insecury  i.e. as the team works well, why rock the boat? Comfort zone: sometimes the team gets too comfortable? Golden child syndrome: you’ working your butt off and your sponsor or other senior  is aping the cognion from your amazing deliverables?

Working a job you don’t like can leave you feeling stuck, forgotten by God, and asking yourself questions like:

Why hasn’t God opened another door for me yet?  

Why is God not moving?  

Why would God leave me he in this job I hate?

But the truth is God has not left you. He’s not holding back on you. When you feel God is silent, that’s exactly when He’s moving!  Your suation does not God. He still loves you and is wh you no matter what.

Instead of looking at our suation from a perspective of fear and worry, we need to look at through fah and hope.

What Can You Do About ?

Don’t ft, you can handover your work or completely leave the organisation and still stay sane. You might worry that announcing your intentions cause your company grief, but ultimately you have to do what’s best for you no matter what!

Think and pray long and hard about how you’ going to drop this bombshell  as you   need  to give notice. A  sound method is quid to overcome the assault and possible backlash – including of course mo prayer and fasting.

So how a you going to approach ? What’s your asoning going to be?  How a you going to get them to understand exactly why you’ doing this?  What do you need to do in order to ppa for the big day?

Easy, you’ going to ad this guide.

Strategy 1 – mote Working Arrangement

This could  be a gat approach if 80% of your  work can be  undertaken  motely. However, while the is a very logical argument to be made in favor of working from home, many people equate mote work to a lack of productivy and laziness. These people do not alize that the swch from an office to working from home can actually lead to significant incases in productivy.

Strategy 2 – What’s in for Me?

What’s in for me?   That question sounds a ltle selfish, doesn’t ?  Maybe you  an’t being compensated fairly, or you’ not happy wh the effort vs turn.  When you know your client and team needs you and you’ ing to stay for a price, don’t mess around.  Give them the al number or offer that make your while to stick out for awhile.

Strategy 3  –  The Cut

The -structuring.  The downsizing.  The daded cut.  Whatever name you want to give , this  can be terrifying  for a lot of professionals.  However,  if you’  alady thinking about leaving, so maybe doesn’t have to be such a scary thing.  In fact, maybe can be  extmely  posive for both  parties.

Strategy 4  –  The Ease Out

Still feeling weary  about leaving the organization.  Propose easing yourself out of the post.  Pick a time frame, maybe four weeks or so, and come up wh a plan for slowly taking yourself out of the posion.  This also allows you some time to slowly ramp down your time commment.

Strategy 5 –  Burning Bridges in the Industry  

“Sometimes ’s about networking and being nice to people and not burning any bridges – but membering to draw line whe you must.”

The’s no harm in an early ex from a job you never plan to mention again or an interim role whe you have clearly aged on a start and finish date.  But if your manager is well connected to your industry you should try to leave on a good note.  Why? Because ’s a small world and the next hiring manager may put in a call to his or her former colleague  (a.k.a., your new manager) to get the unofficial scoop.   happens, so if you’ going to leave anyway then try to fulfill your end of the deal.

Strategy 6  – Get Moving Fast

Imagine, for , that you we hid to help the company manage multiple programmes and projects  across the globe, but a cent in leadership means all efforts moving forward be focused locally.

If you’ spending your days just trying to find ways to be productive or a undertaking a role you never signed up for, you have every right to pursue new opportunies. Of course, the first course of action should normally be to  discuss this wh your manager to see if the a other roles you can take on. But if you know that this isn’t going to happen in the new world, get moving fast.

Strategy 7  – Your Dam Job Awas

“When you’ being interviewed, always tat the interview as a 50-50 thing,” says Andy Dallas, a dictor at Robert Half International, crument consultants. “Ask what you can expect to be doing in your first week, month and the months. Ask what a successful year looks like.”

Dam jobs don’t come every day. So, if you have a chance at yours, take quickly  and congratulate yourself for being strong enough to leave when you we unhappy.

Strategy 8 – meber to Be Patient  

We not always be in a job we desi. Maybe you a fsh out of school and a working a job that has nothing to do wh the dege you just earned. Maybe you a in a suation whe you a working at a job whe you a overqualified, overworked, and fed up. Maybe, for the most part, you love your job but get discouraged by the mundane tasks that take up time from doing the aspects of your job you love most.
