Recently joined a new team in the summer. Things started out good then have somewhat started to fizzle out. Team is great overall and they work hard but the work I’m doing is not very exciting and is extremely monotonous. I have been casually looking and applying to roles within my industry but at the same time our dept has been great letting us work from home and not face any pay cuts or furloughs. There’s not much upward mobility within, would it be best to stay or take my talents elsewhere.

Depends on how much you want to hustle these days. Personally, I’d shift my thinking: Is there an opportunity for you to add something more stimulating on the side - eg virtual classes, masters or mba, etc - that would allow you to take advantage of stability during a stressful time while teeing you up for a bigger jump down the line, post-pandemic?

It sounds like you lost interest, but the golden handcuffs of not being furloughed and working from home are keeping you there.

If you’re not happy and looking, then go 100% on that decision and move on, but, I would evaluate if this is going to be a pattern in the next gig. Will things start to fizzle out again?

Don’t wait for opportunity, create it, and keep your teams energized in the meantime. That energy will rub off (both good and bad).

Seems like Covid is a bad time to try to make a move. Even the freelance market is tapped out. It seems like there are fewer opps out there. Agree/disagree?
