4 Indicators That Your Career is Going Nowhere

Have you come to the point where you feel your career is going nowhere? Do you feel that you have exhausted every avenue for promotion, but you don’t know why? Are you tired of seeing others promoted over you? Do you think your boss is ignoring you or, even worse, hates you?

You are good at what you do. You understand that and others in your team know that too. You are friendly and have been applying for positions for some time when they become available.

Sure, you are hardworking and focused, but have you got to a point where you think that these qualities are not enough? And you beginning to consider what are the real factors affecting career development?

Well, the good news is you are not alone. There are plenty of other middle managers who are at a loss to explain the true factors affecting career development.

As an individual only you are responsible for your next promotion. It is therefore imperative that you know the 4 indicators that show your career is going nowhere.

 

Situation 1: You Are Never Considered for a Promotion

Regardless of how hard you work or how dedicated you are to your company, you never seem to be considered for a promotion. Does this sound familiar?

You may have tried to apply for promotions, but you are continually knocked back. When you inquire as to why you are given the same reason over again.

It doesn’t seem fair, but it is a sure indication that your career is going nowhere.

 

Situation 2: Your Job is Too Easy

If you find that your job is too easy then you are in trouble. If your job doesn’t challenge you it is a strong indication that your career is stuck, and to a degree meaningless.

If you truly love your job you are going to find your spirits lifted each time a new project lands on your desk. You are going to relish opportunities to push yourself and face obstacles. Is this you? No? If not, then you are really stuck.

 

Situation 3: Your Career has Come to a Complete Stop

Some middle managers’ careers come to a stop and they don’t really notice. Well, not at first anyway. They have been rolling along when suddenly it dawns on them one day that they have been doing the same thing year after year.

Sometimes when we challenge ourselves and we don’t see the benefits we believe we should, our minds tend to go around in circles. We begin to doubt our own abilities and even worth.

It can be hard to decide whether you want to apply for the next promotion or not. It can be difficult to know whether you are going to face the same issues at other companies so you end up staying where you are, and not advancing.

You may have begun to notice that others are being promoted over you. This can damage your confidence a lot, especially if that person is younger than you or hasn’t been at the company as long.

 

Situation 4: You’ve Lost All Enthusiasm for the Job

When you are really stuck you become like a robot. You do your job, you complete the tasks assigned to you, but you have lost your ability to add flair and that special something to your work.

 

If you find that you don’t have any enthusiasm for your job then you are truly stuck, and it is safe to say your career is not going anywhere.

When looking back on your career, some of these points may sound familiar. The question you need to ask yourself does this mean the end. Is the writing on the wall?

And if it is, and you are now noticing it, what next?

Don’t worry because help is at hand. Now is the time to change your career for the better. You don’t deserve to be stuck in the same boring job. You shouldn’t be in a career that is going nowhere.

 

And always remember:

Great managers are made. Not born.
