If you have ever been laid off, fired, or decided to shift gears in your career, you know firsthand how difficult it is to find a job. And after you find that one, you do your best to give it your all and to keep that, right? But what happens when you witness some things that shouldn’t be happening? Do you speak up and risk losing your job? Do you find somewhere else to work, knowing that it might take a long time? My big picture question is this- should you compromise your values and beliefs for your career?
On a slightly different note, many people make sacrifices every day for their job. Maybe you’re not getting the amount of money you want. Maybe it’s not in the prime location you want it to be. Maybe you can’t stand working with customers, but your coworkers help the day go by. Whatever the case may be, the pros must outweigh the cons if you make it in to work every day. But what about those things that keep you up at night, or the things that leave a bad taste in your mouth?
I want to hear from my readers… How much should you sacrifice? How do you cope? Or if you are happy where you are, how did you get there?
