Happy at Your New Job?

So, you recently accepted a new position. And after working there a few weeks you begin to question – are you happy? Or has your new boss asked you if you were happy with your job? Only one of my bosses during my entire work history has ever asked me if I was happy working at an organization. When he asked, he then took the time to listen to my response, and I felt reassured that my happiness at work was important to him. And that he was genuinely interested in whatever he could do to help make my transition into a new job and organization as pleasant as possible.

When it comes to finding a certain level of happiness at a new job there are some factors that are within your control. Being aware of these factors could make the difference when planning your next career move. Here are just a few recommendations of what you should consider when strategizing for your next employment opportunity.

Conduct an Informational Interview

It’s okay to learn as much as you can about a potential employer before you take on a new position. Make inquiries about the position, the organization, and any aspect that you may need clarification on before you take on a new role.

Know Your Strengths

Another name for your strengths is your gifts – spiritual gifts. These are the natural abilities that you have been blessed with to perform a task or job description. When seeking new employment opportunities seek out opportunities that utilize your gifts or strengths.

Stay Focused

Know that the specific job(s) that will bring you happiness is attainable, but it’s up to you not to get distracted by applying for positions that are not in your best interest. Rely on your intuition as a guide to help you identify positions that you are a great fit for. If you don’t have peace about it – don’t apply.
