What if your new job isn’t for you after all?
If you start in your new job role and realise that it isn’t right for you, this can be devastating. For someone who has been looking for a job for a long time, the thought of being stuck in a job that they hate, potentially for years to come, can be very depressing. It can also be irritating and financially worrying to realise that you can’t stay in this job.
In addition, it is likely that you will have had to sign a contract. In some cases, it can be difficult to get out of a job once you have started. However, there are a few things you can do to help yourself, if you are in this position.
- Speak to your employer. As soon as you realise that you are not going to be able to continue in your job, you need to let your employer know. Don’t be afraid to ask for a meeting and tell them face to face. This allows you to have a conversation, explaining your reasoning and answering any questions they may have.
- Be flexible. It may not be suitable for you to walk away at this early point. Your employer will probably want to replace you as soon as possible, rather than keep training you for a job that you aren’t going to stay in. At the same time, the role must be fulfilled until the employer has made alternative arrangements. Be prepared to work until someone else is found.
- Work out what changes could convince you to stay. You may be happy to stay in the job if some changes were made which suit you better. If this is the case, let your employer know what might convince you to stay. As a result, there may be a way for you to continue working for them.
