5 Signs You’re in the Wrong Job

Most of us at some point or another find ourselves in the wrong job. It happens. You’re in a place where you don’t really belong, where you feel like an outsider, where there’s absolutely no growth potential (for you). The trick is to be mindful of your situation, to be realistic, to be ready to move on should an opportunity present itself.

Yet some folks take longer to recognize they’re at the wrong job than others. Some folks stand around scratching their heads for quite some time before even considering taking any sort of action to correct the situation. The sooner you move on with your life, the better off you’ll be, and so I compiled a quick guide that might help a wrong-jobber see the light.

5 Signs You’re at the Wrong Job

1. You don’t recognize a single person in the building.

2. You can’t find your cubicle. Or any cubicle at all. All you can find are a bunch of old ladies sewing things.

3. Strange men come and ask you to leave the premises and/or they’re going to mess you up.

4. Your building looks a lot different on the outside than you remember it looking. It used to look like a three-story industrial plaza and now it looks like a large, stuffy warehouse/garage with gang taggings on the metal garage door.

5. The company seems to have changed its name even though nobody gave you a heads up. Before it was called “Microcore Computing” and was located in Burbank California, and now it’s called “Maria’s Fabrics” and it’s located by the USC campus in downtown Los Angeles.

If you relate to any of these signs then you are very likely at the wrong job.
