Career Advice

I’m needing sound advice as I can’t seem to come to an conclusion. I have been in my chosen field for the past 5 years. During my 5 years I have been at 11 companies. I haven’t been able to find a place that fits me and what I am looking for I only got let go by 1 of the companies so the other 10 I left at my own will. I work in a industry where the moral law and integrity is extremely low. I am an excellent employee I work hard, and advance myself through licenses to become more valuable. When I leave companies they are surprised. I know me being at so many places is bad. I hate driving so far everyday and to different places everyday. I hate working with lazy people who will sit and watch. I hate that I can’t find the place that operates with diligence. I find myself depressed most days. Here I am at my 11th company thinking about leaving, I don’t know if should stay or leave. The guys here are lazy, they don’t care. The company doesn’t keep their word, but that’s how most of them are. I’m confused.

What field are you in?

Fire Alarm

Can you use your experience to start your own company?

[–]No-Hovercraft-6955[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I could, but I’m not interested in starting my own company

Why are you thinking about leaving now?

So what if everybody else is lazy? Are you upset they get paid the same as you? What bothers you about the place?

If it's the driving, then find another field. Could you find employment that doesn't require all the driving you don't like?

Who cares what everybody else at the place does. Typically, in my line of work ... if you do good work then you get rewarded. If you're at 11 different places and aren't being rewarded for good work, then what does that suggest to you?

I haven’t been there long enough to get rewarded unfortunately.

I always leave before the opportunity comes

How's that working out for you?

[–]rocknrollchuck 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Sounds like you may like the work itself, but not the job requirements for that field.

The guys here are lazy, they don’t care.

The irony here is that this should make it easier for you to stand out.

The company doesn’t keep their word, but that’s how most of them are.

You need to see how your licenses might be useful in another, related field and then take some courses to increase your value so you have a better chance of landing a job in a career you would be more happy with. Then you would be in a good position to leave and transition to a good place. Suck it up and figure it out in the meantime, rather than leaving for yet another sucky place.

I work in a industry where the moral law and integrity is extremely low. I am an excellent employee I work hard, and advance myself through licenses to become more valuable. When I leave companies they are surprised. I know me being at so many places is bad. I hate driving so far everyday and to different places everyday. I hate working with lazy people who will sit and watch. I hate that I can’t find the place that operates with diligence. I find myself depressed most days.

The problem here is you are letting your circumstances dictate your actions and mental and emotional states. This is the opposite of the Bible, and RP for that matter.

Christ's mission for us to evangelize and make disciples of all nations. Hence, it is us who should be impacting our environment.

  • If you're depressed then you're letting your circumstances dictate your emotions instead of walking in the fruit of the Spirit - joy and peace. The disciples were getting beaten and put in prison for preaching the gospel and they were singing hymns and praising God. Your workplace is clearly not as bad as that.

  • If your coworkers are lazy people who will sit and watch then make friends and influence them to help them a good work ethic. Share you faith.

  • If you can't find a place that operates with diligence then model that and try to get supervisors on board.

Stop letting everything and everyone around you affect you and start impacting everyone around you.

No one or anything around you can make you unhappy. Only if you let them.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
