Your host, Danielle N. Adams, asks and answers a blunt question on this episode of Mostly Business: how are you living in your dead end job?
With employee engagement at a consistent low of 30%, it begs to question:
what really motivates us as employees? what types of commitment are there? what are the barriers that keep us stuck? I have walked the walk on both sides of the equation as an employee and as a manager, and I have seen what happens when the light goes out in the eyes of an employee. I will share my personal story of going from a high-performing powerhouse to being completely OVER IT, and will discuss whether you should stay or you should go.

Let’s be honest – searching for a job, especially in this economy, is not fun. Have you ever heard anyone say “I love job seeking!”
No? I didn’t think so. Looking for a job – and a really good job that you actually want – takes time. A LOT of time. It takes patience. And a whole lotta work.
Trying to switch industries or change careers is even more challenging because you will rarely meet all the must-have requirements in the job description. But there are some things you can do (and prepare for) that will help set you up for success. Having the right attitude can make job hunting more exciting and less stressful when you search for what you want. Call in and share your thoughts on how job transitioning has helped you!
