This time of year often calls for personal and professional reflection. It is a good time, and often beneficial exercise, to re-evaluate your employment situation. Of course in this day and age, we should be grateful for gainful employment but that does not mean you should not consider ways to advance your career.
Loyalty is certainly an admirable trait but if you are not willing to at least consider other jobs, you might be missing a real chance for career advancement. Of course the grass is not always greener elsewhere, but you will never know unless you are willing explore other options from time to time. And there may not be such thing as the absolute perfect job, but you might be able to improve certain aspects of your career that are particularly important to you. So go ahead and test the waters – maybe you will realize that you have it pretty darn good already or you might just find a better path to achieving your career objectives.
