Should I quit my job How to know when its time to go

Should I quit my job How to know when its time to goShould I quit my job How to know when its time to goIn the vast majority of situations, you know in your gut when its time to quit your job.And as hard as that truth is already to face, sometimes the situation is further complicated by the fact that either youve been working at your current company for a long time and you haverelationships with your coworkersthat make it tough to let go, or maybe youve only been there for a short time and feel schwimmbadeanstalt (for them and for your own hire-ability) about leaving so soon.Whatever the situation, if youve been getting a nagging feeling inside that its time to start looking for greener (job) pastures, but are looking for just a little validation ask yourself how many of the below scenarios feel relatable to you. To be fair there are actually up to16 different reasons that people quit their jobs, however, when youre the one actually stuck in that predicament and asking yourself shou ld I quit my job?, just having a reason (or a few) to quit isnt enough.If one or more of these scenarios apply to you, hear it from us quitting and moving on might truly be your best option.Follow Ladders on FlipboardFollow Ladders magazines on Flipboard covering Happiness, Productivity, Job Satisfaction, Neuroscience, and moreYoure walking on eggshellsDid you know thatone in five employeesdescribe their workplace as hostile? Walking on eggshells, or that feeling like you have to be super careful with every little word or action, is a classic sign of a hostile or toxic workplace. If you have to tiptoe cautiously around the workplace to avoid explosions from a coworker (you know the one) or even your manager, and youve tried to resolve it but gotten nowhere, its time to find an employer who can create and maintain the kind of environment that feels good.Youve already quit you just havent quit yetWhen you started in your current role, you were great. You burned the candle at both end s, competed with your peers to bring the best ideas and best results, and voluntarily passed on events in your personal life to show your anfhrer how dedicated you were to your role. But now things are differentyou show up, sure. But youre constantly doing only the bare minimum to slide through the day. Maybe you even play Candy Crush when the boss isnt looking or duck out a few minutes early at the end of the day. You do your job but youre not doing it justice, not the way you used to.Its calledpresenteeismand its associated with disengagement. Disengaged employees hurt those around them and its a huge sign that youre not where you should be. If youve quit (but you havent actually quit yet), its time to go. Dont risk your reputation for a job that isnt a fit.You dread going to work in the morningEven if youre settled into what you would consider a pretty decent (or even dream) job, there will be mornings youre not excited to go to work and thats a fact of life.However, if youve fou nd that this lack of excitement about going into work has become a regular, ongoing and increasingly bothersome thing, thats a bad sign. And if that lack of excitement evolves into constant anxiety and dread especially dread that creeps into your mind the night before work, like on aSunday night before the ever-hated Monday morning it truly might be time to find a position thatsbetter for your mental healthand soul.Its too late to forgive and forgetSometimes work situations cause hurt and resentment that just doesnt go away (or that we dontwantto go away). Maybe you were passed up for a promotion or your manager handled a difficult situation poorly, or maybe some person or persons in the organization have done questionable things that go againstyour personal values, and youre still hanging onto those negative emotions. Emotions are complicated.Ask yourself, Do Iwantto move past this? If you want to, its likely you can do that with a few tough conversations and commitment to forgive ness. But sometimes, even with the best of intentions, you might find that there really is no resolution for the hurt and resentment that your current company has caused you. In that case, it might be best for you to simply accept the feelings that you have about the situation no matter how negative or disappointing and move on. And indeed, thats your cue to quit your job andfind another companyto work for.This article originally appeared on Kununu.You might also enjoyNew neuroscience reveals 4 rituals that will make you happyStrangers know your social class in the first seven words you say, study finds10 lessons from Benjamin Franklins daily schedule that will ersatzdarsteller your productivityThe worst mistakes you can make in an interview, according to 12 CEOs10 habits of mentally strong people

Glassdoor Rallies for Hurricane Harvey Relief

Glassdoor Rallies for Hurricane Harvey ReliefGlassdoor Rallies for Hurricane Harvey Relief Since Hurricane Harvey first hit the U.S. on August 25, Glassdoor employees have watched with heavy hearts as the storm ravaged communities in Texas and Louisiana - areas that several employees and customers have close ties to. Witnessing the devastation that Harvey has wrought, Glassdoor offices across the country have decided to band together and contribute toward relief efforts. As a first step, Glassdoor will be donating $5,000 to the Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce . A small town of about 10,000 people along the Gulf Coast, Rockport was the first area to be hit by the storm and has seen the most destruction, with electricity, roads, cell phone service, and other critical parts of their infrastructure effectively wiped out. The Chamber of Commerce plays a key role in supporting local businesses, and it is our hope that our donation can contribute toward sustainable eco nomic growth in the wake of the hurricane. In addition, each of Glassdoors U.S.-based offices - Mill Valley, CA San Francisco, Chicago and Green, OH - will be launching local drives to lend support to more specific organizations and areas, with Glassdoor matching donations up to $1,000 per office. Organizations to receive funds include the Houston Diaper Bank , JJ Watts Harvey Relief , Houston Humane Society and Corpus Christi Food Bank . Glassdoor is also working directly with its customers in the affected region to extend their Glassdoor accounts as needed.*Our hearts go out to the people and communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey, said Dawn Lyon, Glassdoors Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs. It will take some time to recover and rebuild and were pleased we can help people in the affected communities get their lives back on track. Restoring the areas devastated by Harvey is certainly no easy feat, but the more people and organizations that pitch in, the quicker w e can help those impacted by the storm regain a sense of normalcy - to that end, we invite you to join us by donating to the Rockport-Fulton Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund and the organizations listed above. In the coming days, we will also be keeping a close eye on Hurricane Irma and wish everyone in its path well.*If you are a Glassdoor client in an area affected by Hurricane Harvey, please reach out to your rep and they will be happy to assist you.

3 Ways to Stop Thinking About Work When Youre Not There

3 Ways to Stop Thinking About Work When Youre Not There3 Ways to Stop Thinking About Work When Youre Not ThereWhether you love your job or hate it, you probably think about work on your off hours at some point. You kick around a particularly perplexing aufgabe or grouchy client. You ponder how to deal with your boss latest antics. You brainstorm about how youre going to get the heck out of there. But theres definitely a point at which this moves from helpful to, well, not so much. In my experience, that point is typically when you find yourself panicking in the middle of the night about whats going on at the office, writing work to-dos on your grocery list, and receiving fewer and fewer calls from friends (because, um, all you do is talk about your job). In other words, bringing too much work home- even if that work is just rolling around in your head- can quickly make you an anxious, sleep-deprived, pretty boring dinner guest (and, yes, I know this from experience).I also know that telling yourself to think about work less doesnt quite work, so I loved the tips that Fast Company recently offered for training your brain to leave work at work. Here are a few of my favorites1. Create Transition RitualsYour commute home is a physical act that separates you from the office, but try to add something mental to that activity, too. Laura Vanderkam, the articles author, recommends listening to or reading something light, but I find jamming to your favorite tunes, playing a tough game on your phone, or calling a friend also does the trick. As Vanderkam recommends, ask your family members (or friends or roommates) about their days, and challenge yourself to be a good listener. Focusing on other people and their needs is a great way to get out of your own head.2. Give Your Brain a Different Problem to SolveIf your mind is still spinning after leaving the office, channel that energy into something else. Wondering whether you should attend your cousins destination wedding? T rying to decide what color to paint the bathroom? Use the immediate post-work time to think about that. If youre still getting distracted, hold yourself accountable Ask a co-worker or friend for a problem to solve, then promise youll have some thoughts on it by the time you get home.3. Give Yourself a Worry TimeThis is probably one of the most helpful tips Ive found, especially if Im thinking about a particularly hairy problem Schedule a later time to stress. Think, Ill respond to that email tomorrow morning over coffee, and I wont think about it until then, or That awful meeting is set for Tuesday, so Ill set aside two hours on Monday to prepare for (freak out about) it. As Vanderkam puts it, Often, your brain just needs to know that theres a time for thinking about that issue- and now is not that time.What other ways have you found to leave work at work?Photo of woman on beach courtesy of Shutterstock.

How Your Employer Brand Can Benefit From a Bad Review

How Your Employer Brand Can Benefit From a Bad ReviewHow Your Employer Brand Can Benefit From a Bad ReviewMore than 20 years ago the Internet reinvented job advertising, job searching and employer research. But every technology advance seemingly comes with its dark side. The proliferation of online reviews for just about everything has left many geschftsleben owners, chefs, product manufacturers, book authors, entertainers and employers with a love/hate relationship with reviews. As individuals they now depend on them for purchase decisions, but as business owners they often dread reading bad reviews, fearful of unfounded complaints and fake reviews from competitors.Bill Tancer, author of the book Everyones a Critic Winning Customers in a Review-Driven World and general manager for global research at Experian Marketing Services, calls business owners reactions to reviews a form of cognitive dissonance. In an interview with Simply Hired, he elaborated on some of the ideas discussed in the book. The classic example of cognitive dissonance is a chefs reaction to a bad review. How can that be? he asks, knowing how much effort went into preparing the food.The human mind experiences conflict when it considers two observations that both cant be true. Just as a reaction to an entre is obviously a matter of taste, employers also have fans and detractors. Where one spends at least a third of ones day is a big decision, and job seekers increasingly consult reviews before accepting an offer. According to a 2014 survey, nearly 8 in 10 Americans at least sometimes check reviews before purchasing a product or service.While reviews can be difficult for recruiters and HR managers to look at, Tancer writes, Every valid negative viewpoint in a review has the potential for helping you improve your business. Think of it not a criticism but as data.Harnessing the Power of Bad ReviewsTo help with the cognitive dissonance business owners experience when reading reviews of their busine sses, Tancer recommends an exercise in desensitization, outlined below. While Tancer is not a business owner himself, he experienced the cognitive dissonance of bad reviews firsthand after the release of his first book, Click What Millions of People Do Online and Why it Matters.Despite the difficulty of considering the points made in the bad reviews, he said, I found that there welches some truth to the criticism. One reviewer said thatClick was too promotional because he only used one source of data- his employers.I used that information to ask my publisher to get an editor who would be harder on me for this book. I wanted someone who would push me to use different data sources and make sure I didnt get promotional.Exercise in DesensitizationOnce you step past the cognitive dissonance, thoughtful evaluation of reviews can help you get a better understanding of your employer brand and decide how to improve it and highlight it.Before doing this exercise for your own company, try doin g it for a previous employer.Spend a few minutes putting yourself back on site at that job.Take out a piece of blank paper and draw a line down the middle and label the columns pros and cons.Write in the appropriate column everything you remember, from the office environment, your former manager and colleagues, the work you did, the review process, the perks, etc.Now go through the online reviews of the company, sorting by five-star reviews to find werkstoff for the pros column and scrolling or sorting to the end to read one-star reviews for the cons.Once youve got your list and the aggregate list from the reviews, look for similarities, differences and things you missed in your own assessment. Are there any patterns to the comments? Any eye openers?One of the hidden values of online reviews, Tancer said, is that often the aggregate opinion of online reviewers can reveal perspectives you may have missed.When you do this for your own company and find the patterns, use this informatio n to decideWhich negative comments can be addressed through HR practices, employee communication or should be communicated to specific department managers?Which positive comments indicate an aspect of working at the company that can be highlighted in employer branding materials or otherwise communicated to candidates?Reviewer Bias is RealBut theres still a danger in the natural bias of reviewers. There are always people with gripes, Tancer said. Maybe they got fired or had a bad experience. And then there are the company defenders. This is common among reviews for many business types.People who are infrequent reviewers tend to give either one staror five stars, said Tancer. The unique situation for employers is that most people only hold one job at a time and average tenure lasts several years. Infrequency is the nature of employment reviews. Those who review restaurants or products have many more opportunities to write reviews.Are the Best Really the Best for Everyone?Tancer comple ted the same exercise in desensitization for Freakonomics, a popular book about economics and incentives that he admired. In evaluating the reviews of a runaway bestseller, he was surprised to find it had several hundred 1- and 2-star reviews. The perspective that every author, no matter how popular or acclaimed, had to confront bad reviews made him feel less alone.After doing the desensitization exercise for a current or past employer, Tancer recommends doing the same evaluation of reviews for a best-in-class company (e.g., one on a best places to work list).The more popular something is, the more critical people can become, he said. Popularity lends itself to more scrutiny. Is this really as great as everyone says it is?In Everyones a Critic he describes reading the one-star reviews for a famous California restaurant, The French Laundry. Many of the reviews were about the difficulty of getting a reservation or the high cost, rather than the food itself, though one reviewer wrote, anybody who could grill a steak or chop carrots could cook this food. Theres just no way to please everyone.A few bad reviews might be good for you, Tancer said. A study by Reevoo found that that 68 percent of consumers trust reviews more when they see both good and bad scores. Close to a third suspect fake reviews or censorship when there are no bad reviews.Bad reviews communicate that the fit isnt for everyone, Tancer said. Employers invest in their brands because they want to find more employees who are a good fit. People looking for a new job have obviously left or want to leave because that company or position is no longer a fit. Perhaps they even have written negative comments about their current or most recent employer.On the whole, Tancer believes that reviews are beneficial because they can be the impetus to improve quality. Now I keep a list of common criticisms, challenge myself to address them and return to those reviews to come up with ways to keep improving.Theres no r eason employers cant do the same.Read more from this seriesWhy You Need to Embrace Employer Branding This YearYour Company Culture Doesnt Have to Be Perfect - Just Authentic8 Ways to Create a Desirable Employer Brand for Candidates

How to Read Body Language During a Video Interview - Spark Hire

How to Read Body Language During a Video Interview - Spark HireWhile the responses a candidate delivers during an interview matter, their non-verbal cues also help to paint a picture about who this individual is as a professional especially during video interviews. Decoding a candidates body language and coupling this knowledge with what you gain from their verbal replies allows you to gather crucial insight about whether this partie might be an appropriate fit for your open role.A recent survey by CareerBuilder shed light on several red flags to be aware of, as far as body language is concerned. Here is the hidden meaning behind unterstellung non-verbal signs and signals PostureOur posture can speak volumes about how we feel about a conversation. When were fascinated by what the other person is saying, we tend to lean in. When were disengaged, were more likely to lean back in our chairs. When youre watching candidates video interviews, observe their posture. You shouldnt see people leaned all the way back in their chairs, with their feet on the desk. This can be a sign theyre either bored by the topics at hand, or are feeling far too comfortable with their chances of landing the job and arent taking the process seriously.Our posture can speak volumes about how we feel about a conversation.Click To Tweet Fiddling with hair, nails, or jewelry.As common nervous habits, you might see applicants tucking hair behind ears, twisting rings around their fingers, playing with necklaces, or picking at their nails. They may be unaware of these tics, which can signal a lack of self-confidence. These issues may go away should this person land the job and become more comfortable with you. However, they could be damaging if the individual is in a client-facing role and will continue to find themselves in high-pressure situations where they need to make a positive impact right away. Poor eye contact.While they may not be sitting across from you having a conversation, eye conta ct is still important during a video interview. If you notice a person rolls their eyes as they speak or allows their gaze to dart around the room, you have to wonder what theyd be like if brought into a meeting or asked to give a presentation. Tics can signal a lack of self-confidence.Click To TweetStrong, steady eye contact is key. At the same time, a person who just stares into the camera can appear menacing, so you want someone who is able to maintain good eye contact in a non-threatening way. Failure to smile.A job interview should be taken seriously, of course, but that doesnt mean that smiling is forbidden. You want a candidate who seems genuinely excited and enthusiastic about the opportunity in front of them. One way to determine this is by looking for someone who answers their video interview questions with a warm, natural smile. Fidgeting in their seat.Much like how playing with your hair, nails, or jewelry is distracting, moving around in your seat detracts from the powe r of your words. If you notice a candidate delivers a response while twirling in their chair, take this nonverbal behavior into consideration. Think about the impression theyd give off should you bring them on client meetings or ask them to interface with high-powered executives within your company. Crossed arms.This subtle gesture makes a job candidate look standoffish. Coupled with a lack of smile, its a negative body language cue that may indicate the person isnt actually that interested in the open position.Crossed arms can also signal a person expressing frustration. People who typically cross their arms in this manner usually do it for self-comfort. Whatever the reasoning, crossing your arms during a video interview is almost always a signal that something is off. Using too many hand gestures.Many people talk with their hands without fully realizing it, but going overboard with hand gestures makes it hard to focus on the homilie the person is delivering. A few hand motions fo r emphasis every now and then is acceptable, but it shouldnt become distracting.Learning how to decode body language makes the video interview process more informative for those looking to add to their team. Watch out for these interview red flags and youll be able to make a thoughtful hiring decision that ensures this new team member is part of your staff for the long-haul.
