Are You Working a Dead-End Job?

You Very Well May Be!


Signs you might be working in a dead end job


Have you ever felt like you are working at a dead-end job?  If you think that you are, you are definitely not dead-endalone.  With that in mind, just because you think that you may be working a dead-end job, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are.  However, if you would like a little bit of proof or verification, you may want to continue reading on.

One of the many signs that you may be working a dead-end job is if you find yourself in the same position, for years and years.  If you were hired with the intention of no advancement, your current position may be fine for you. With that in mind, if you have goals and have yet to see those goals accomplished, it may be a sign of a dead-end job.  You should never have your work go unrewarded, especially if you were employed by the same company for years.

Another sign that you may be working a dead-end job is if you have been working at the same pay level, also for a number of years.  In fact, many employers automatically give their employees pay raises yearly or even quarterly.  If you have been employed by the same company and for an extended period of time, you may be working a dead-end job.  There is good news though, if your only issue is pay, you may be able to turn your dead-end job into a great job.  You can do this by inquiring about a pay raise.  Many employers expect this, especially after an extended period of time without a raise; therefore, you may have nothing to lose by at least asking.

The above mentioned signs are just a few of the signs that you may be working a dead- end job.  As previously dead-end2stated, however, it is important to remember that you don’t have to keep on working in what may be deemed as a dead-end job forever. There are a number of different steps that you can take to see success.  One of those steps involves speaking to your supervisor or supervisors. Asking about career path options. Ask them what you can improve on, work with them to create a well defined career plan.  This may involve asking for an increase in pay or asking for a promotion, at the end of the plan, should any positions be available.  In today’s society, you will find that not all individuals want the responsibility of a promotion; therefore, you will want to let your supervisors know that you are not one of those individuals.

Another one of the many ways that you go about getting out of what you may refer to as a dead-end job is by creating a stir, but in a good way.  Despite your possible frustration, you may want to consider giving your job, dead-end or not, a second chance. With that second chance though, you are urged to take action.  Be sure to do good deeds in front of your supervisors, volunteer to work late or cover someone else’s shift in an emergency and so forth. As previously stated, your supervisors may mistakenly believe that you are currently satisfied with your job.  You will want to show them that you want more and that you are capable of handling more.

Another option that you have, when looking to rid yourself of a dead-end job, is seeking employment elsewhere.  If you have a family to support or bills that must be paid, you may only want to use seeking employment elsewhere as a last resort, but it is still a resort that you may want to examine.

4 Rules High Achievers Never Break

Posted by on Feb 2, 2014 in Personal Development | 0 comments



1. Enjoy the journey as much or more than the destination.
Many people are only satisfied when they have reached a certain conclusion. They are happy only when the work is done to their satisfaction levels. That is all well and good, but true high achievers enjoy the process as much, if not more than the end result.four-rules-high-achievers-never-break-300x336

To become a true high achiever, you need to take the time to enjoy where you are in the journey. If you enjoy the processes you perform on a daily basis, you too will be able to achieve more.

2. Set goals that are reasonable and doable. High achievers meet the goals that they set for themselves because the goals that they are setting are achievable. Do not set yourself up for failure by setting lofty goals that no person in their right mind would ever be able to achieve.

Instead, break your long term goals up into smaller, more manageable short term ones. If you can meet or exceed a new short term goal on a daily or weekly basis, you too will be well on your way to high achievement.

3. Have great coping mechanisms. High achievers are people who can cope well when the stress level surrounding them gets high. This is not because they are super human. No, high achievers are able to deal so well with stress because they have developed a series of great coping mechanisms that help them deal with stress while remaining in control of their lives.

4. Know when to quit. Finally, high achievers are able to achieve so much because they know when to quit. They know when they need a break and they know when they need to step back for a week or two. High achievers understand that in order to continue achieving at such a high level, they need to take the time that they need to stay sane and mentally healthy.

Do not run yourself into the ground in the name of high achievement, cut yourself some slack from time to time.

See, it is truly not that difficult to set yourself on the path to high achievement.
