PHILADELPHIA, PA – December 10, 2012 – Many mid-career executives and professionals feel trapped in a job they hate. In a tough economy, they’re often advised to quit (“Just quit and trust yourself”) or grit (“Hang in there and be grateful you’ve got a job.”)
The truth is, quitting cold turkey will put you in a one-down position when you apply for a new job or start your own business. But if you really feel miserable in your job, you can become physically ill from the stress. Some people find they sabotage themselves, doing something “dumb” so they’re forced to quit.
Cathy Goodwin, Ph.D., claims there is a third solution: use your current job as a vehicle to move to your goal on your own terms. When you hate your job, you have two priorities. First, protect yourself, your integrity and your sanity. Second, begin to take steps so you can find a new career on your own terms.
Goodwin’s ebook, “10 Things To Do When You Really REALLY Hate Your Job” has been released as a kindle ebook on Amazon, free to Prime members and available to borrow or purchase. A kindle reader is not required as the ebook can be read on your computer. This ebook offers specific tips that go beyond the most common career planning platitudes to help readers develop realistic plans, take action steps and ake wise decisions.
