Looking for a Change (1)

Hey Lisa... want to grab lunch with me?

Sure, Emily. We haven't done that in a while.

Yeah... actually, we haven't hung out at all recently.

You seem sort of under the weather. Is there something going on?

Well, keep this under your hat, but I think I'm going to quit after New Year.

Quit this company? Oh... wow.

I know. I should be pretty happy here, but I'm not finding the kind of job satisfaction I need.

I'm a good graphic designer...

One of the best in the company.

That's kind of you to say. But... the stuff we do here hasn't really challenged me very much at all.

Oh, I get it. Simply put: you're bored, huh?

That's one way of putting it.

For me, a job needs to stimulate my brain, otherwise it becomes a daily drudgery.

Another thing is that I don't feel like there is a decent chance of promotion.

I've been here for three years and I'm doing the exact same thing at the exact same salary.

That's true... Salaries have been frozen for a while and I hear next year it's the same story.

I'm finding that I spend a lot of time at work just sitting at my cubicle daydreaming or wasting time.

I can't sleep Sunday nights because I know I have to go back to work the next day.

Wow... Sounds like you're suffering from serious job dissatisfaction.

I guess you really do need a change.
