I have become increasingly aware that I have reached a point of stagnation in my current position. To make matters worse, contrary to what was advertised when I took this particular position, there is little if no hope of upward movement. So, to put it quite simply, I am stuck. Unfortunately, the only solution apparent to me is to move on and so I have been in the process of a job search for the past few weeks. I have already been on a few interviews and have a couple good leads but nothing is solidifying yet, which is fine because I currently have stable employment.
After an interview that went extremely well I came back to the office and there sitting on my desk was a package addressed to me. Not sure what the contents of the package could be I opened it and found that it was a framed certificate recognizing my 3 years of service to my current employer. Well, that could not have come at a better time given the current circumstances and it just caused me to wonder if leaving really is the best thing to do. The truth is I have never worked anywhere else and it would probably do me some good to branch out a little but at the same time the unknown is a little scary and my bubble here is definitely safe. And so I struggle.
I am not sure what the best course of action is but for now I will continue to look and apply, and maybe something will surface that will spark my interest and fully engage me. We will see what happens, but I am sure thankful to be in the position I am in. I can not imagine what it would be like to be unemployed while searching for employment. It is hard enough when you are seeking growth and new experiences, as I have written on my share of applications.
