Before searching for a new job, it might be wise to take a long look at your current job. Wise Bread has drafted a list of 10 signs that might make you want to stay where you are.
So you don't have your dream job, and you're pretty sure you never will in your current corporation, but you're also not sure where else to go? You'd love to work at home but you're not sure where to start or if it's something you'd enjoy more than your current job? Love your boss and your coworkers but not sure you want to stay? Here are 10 signs that your current job might be worth staying at, at least until you have your dream job in the bag.
1. Your boss wants to use you to your fullest potential.
If it matters to your boss when you are under-utilized, that indicates that he values you as a person and not just as an employee. Which, in turn, means that he cares about your overall well-being at work, and not just your performance. Bosses like this are often more open to things like letting you telecommute or minimize your hours or tweak your job and procedures in it so your work conditions are as good as possible.
2. Your boss listens to your suggestions.
A boss who truly listens is a boss you can communicate honestly with. If you're looking at starting to work at home, this sort of boss would be more likely to let you try it. Also, having a real "say" in what happens at work will give you a lift — it might not be what you truly care about, but at least you are a person whose opinion matters.
