Youve landed what you thought was the job of your dreams. Each stage of the interview went smoothly - you sold them on your skills and expertise, and your prospective boss sold you on the position and benefits of joining the company. He/she seemed excited about extending an offer. And then, with offer in hand, it was thrilling to give your notice (or tell your friends youre finally employed after a long stint of unemployment!). All seemed right with the world.
Youve now been on board a few days a week perhaps even a month. Suddenly youre not so sure youve made the right decision. The job that seemed like a dream is starting to feel like a nightmare. Perhaps the position isnt what you thought it would be; its either too narrow, too broad, not challenging enough, or more of a stretch than you imagined. Maybe the company isnt measuring up. Or, perhaps your boss isnt the caring, supportive mentor you thought he/she would be.
In a state of confusion, you wonder what you should do. Stick it out? F
