I’m no psychologist or human resources professional, but it’s only logical that if a person looks for another job, one or more job factors in their current position aren’t met. I think there’s a natural evolution with this because the things you felt when you first started a job may no longer be the same after time and experience.
- Has anyone ever taken a pay decrease through changing jobs?
If yes, what did the lower-paying job have that the other one didn’t?
- Of the five “job satisfaction factors” which are most important to your current position? If you were to switch jobs right now, what factor would you look for in a new job?
- Is your salary worth the amount or is it higher/lower based on other job factors?
