Insights and advice about jobs and hiring in the Lehigh Valley.

What to Do if You’re Not Feeling Challenged in Your Current Role

Going to work used to excite you, but lately, you’ve been feeling bored more often than not. You’ve started casually browsing job opportunities in Lehigh Valley, PA, but you’re not quite sure if making a career move is the right choice.

Having a job should be about more than just earning a paycheck. You probably spend at least 40 hours per week at work, so it’s important to be doing something you enjoy. Here’s some advice to help you shake things up.

Three Steps to Take If Your Job Has Become Mundane

Talk to Your Boss

There’s a good chance your manager has no idea you’re feeling discontent. Schedule a meeting to let them know where you’re at. They might be able to give you additional responsibilities that will challenge you and reignite the spark you once had for your job.

Any boss worth your time knows you’re a gem the company is lucky to have on board. Therefore, they’ll be willing to do what it takes to ensure you stick around. Getting on the same page is a must, because there’s no need to leave a job that can be tailored to fit your needs.

Take on a Side Project

If your manager is unable to give you any additional duties, take matters into your own hands. Dedicate the free time you have at work to a side project — with your boss’s permission.

Really challenge yourself to learn new skills that can be added to your resume and create a finished product you’re proud to stand behind. This will help keep you engaged at work and could open the door to new opportunities with your current employer.

Find a New Job

You’re far too talented to waste time on a job that bores you. If you feel like you’ve exhausted your options with your current employer, it’s time to move on to something more stimulating.

Leaving a company you’ve been with for a while can be a tough decision, but you can’t stay put just because you like your colleagues. When there’s nothing left to learn in a job, it’s time to go.

As a staffing and recruitment professional for over  30 years, I have seen many changes in the industry. Over that time, I’ve witnessed a transformation in the way organizations view staffing services. Today, we see more and more companies using staffing services as a strategic tool, rather than just for temporary fill-ins.

At HTSS, Inc., our focus is on helping companies create proactive workforce plans. Our goal is to help our clients use staffing strategically to increase capacity, overcome hiring freezes, access specialized talent, better manage increased workloads, and enhance overall productivity.

For our candidates, we help to uncover truly rewarding job opportunities—jobs that are a match to each candidate’s skills, and jobs that offer key experience and growth potential.

We look forward to strengthening our relationships with our current clients and candidates, as well as forming new and exciting partnerships in the future.
