A Few Signs That The Job Isn't Right for You

  1. Can’t someone else do that?”, “That’s not my responsibility”, and “Why does this depend on me?” are routine parts of your inner dialogue.
  2. You’ve said, “The deadline is tomorrow, but it’s 6:00 PM so it’ll have to wait” and meant it.
  3. You assess someone who lets a deadline slip because they’re working 70 hours per week serving clients as just “not having it all together.”
  4. You often ask questions of others that can be answered with a brief Google search, phone call, or record check.
  5. You believe file versioning and naming conventions are a stupid waste of time.
  6. You think it’s unreasonable when stakeholders expect you to provide information that will give them assurance that tasks are being completed appropriately.
  7. If you don’t know what to do next, you wait. And wait.
  8. You’re more worried about what people think of you than the quality of the outcome you produce.
  9. You resent ambiguous or unstructured situations and require perfect clarity at all times to be happy at work.
  10. Changes to plan, multiple revisions, and new assignments that pop up unexpectedly are unacceptable to you.
  11. You are comfortable letting team members down.
