Valentines Career Quiz

Are you feeling the love when it comes to work, when is it too much love, or when has it turned toxic and it’s time to move on? In our ‘Valentines Career Quiz’ we look at your displays of emotions when it comes to work and the signs you may be unwittingly giving off that mean it’s time to make a break.

We express ourselves in so many ways; whether it’s the use of emojis in text messages or tweets, through music or memes, or even old school real life conversations. Hidden in all these expressions are your true feelings and emotions about real life situations that are affecting you – and in this case your job.

The Divorce
These are the warning signs you can not ignore and looks like you’re heading for a ‘divorce’. It may be you can’t yet see it but trust us when we say, unhappiness on this scale is not healthy, and there are roles out there that could leave you feeling a lot more positive about your working relationship. These feelings are toxic and may end up damaging your professional reputation so best to get out before you’re forced out as your unhappiness is probably not going unnoticed.

What’s next? Making the change is the hardest bit so seek advice from people close to you and ascertain whether it is your work or personal circumstances that are making you feel this way. Once you’ve distinguished the cause, and if it really is your job that’s getting you down work on finding out what you want from your next move, master your CV and get looking for a vacancy you think you would love!

On the rocks/on a break
Feeling tired and despondent about your role isn’t good for you. Perhaps it is time you took a break to take stock of your situation. Can you use a holiday to recharge your batteries? Your general lethargy is perhaps an early warning sign that you are not motivated or enthused about your job and in time this will start to shine through in your productivity.

What’s next? Try applying yourself and looking for the positive in your role. Take a holiday and assess what would make you happier in the work place - perhaps it’s an easy fix like a pay incentive or a clearer definition of your key responsibilities. If it’s none of these then maybe it’s time to look for something new.

It’s Love
You are in the best work relationship you could be and you enjoy your role. There are people out there who will envy you as this is a great position to be in. It could even be a full blown love affair with you playing hard and working hard with your colleagues and loving it. Right now you’re happy to stay put and grow in the business you are currently in.

What’s next? Embrace your enjoyment and look to continue to develop and grow your talent. When the time is right look for internal progression as if you are with a company you love to work with then our advice is to stay put and climb the career ladder.

Infatuation
Your first, your last, your everything. Your work life balance is totally tipped to work and you spend your every waking hour either doing your job or thinking about it. Whether you’re in the office or on the move you never stop and burn the midnight oil regularly. You’re driven by the money and you’ll do anything to be successful. If you’re infatuated with your work this can be a positive if you’re getting the results, but make sure your energies are in the right place.

What’s next? be careful you don’t burn out as working at this pace isn’t always healthy. Ensure you don’t make enemies in your drive to be successful and make sure you are always operating with the bigger picture in mind not just your own personal gain.
