Deaf Employees: Five Things You Can Do If You Hate Your New Job
Adapting to your new job environment can be difficult, and it can be extremely challenging if the job is not what you are expecting and you hate it. According to Hannah Morgan, 43% of people quit their jobs in the first 90 days said the day-to-day role was not what they expected, 34% reported an incident or bad experience at the new job drove them away, and 32% said it was because of the company or organization’s culture. Sometimes, it can be just that you are struggling with adjusting to your new job. Keep in mind that adjusting to your new job is crucial as it plays a significant role in your life satisfaction and happiness. You might feel several kinds of emotions such as sadness, anxiety, or anger when you learn that you do not like your new job. Before you make a big decision in walking away from your new job, try these following suggestions first:
1. Identify the Issues
Before you figure out what are the real issues with your new job, remember that no job is perfect — there are always trade-offs. Do not make any rash decisions and try to think things through carefully. That being said, identify the issues at your new job that you are making you unhappy. Write them down and narrow them down to the main themes. This step might take a bit time to figure out and while you do that, try to stick it out at your new job until you find out what are the issues. You owe it to yourself and the organization that you work for.
2. Talk to Your Supervisor
Approach your supervisor early with your concerns and share your feelings — there may be room for adjustments at your new job that will improve your situation. Give your supervisor a chance to listen and respond to your concerns. If your new position is not right for you, your supervisor may be willing to adjust your duties or look for a better fit elsewhere within the company or organization. If your supervisor is not open to finding solutions that will also help you decide what to do next.
3. Talk to Your Close Ones
Share your issues and concerns about your new job with your close ones whether they are family members, friends or colleagues, which can also be helpful. They can offer you different perspectives that you do not think of before. By talking with your close ones can also help you decide the next steps.
4. Establish a Time Frame
While you figure out why you hate your new job and talking with your supervisor and close ones about your concerns, try to establish a time frame for to reach to your final decision with what you want to do next. Dragging yourself by being undecided about your future can be a very unpleasant experience for you. You can avoid this by establishing a time frame for yourself. Once you set a time frame, think carefully about your next move.
5. If All Else Fails, Make a Decision
Sometimes you do everything right, and things do not work out for you, tell yourself it is ok. Being in this situation also tells you that you will need to make a decision. If you are still unsatisfied with your new job, you can quit and seek your opportunities elsewhere. If you like your old job, you can certainly try to ask for your old job back. If not, you can start looking for a new job. It is imperative to stay positive and cooperative as you leave the company or organization. Remaining positive and diplomatic will only help you in your future endeavors and keep your good reputation intact.
