What does a person do when they’re uninspired by their career? I used to have a lot of passion for my work, but over the past 3-4 years the flame in me got smothered.

Personally I look for fulfillment outside of work. I like my job for my paycheck, it helps that I like the people I work with, but I don’t expect to find passion here. I do get satisfaction from doing a good job at work though.


I was feeling burnt out and overworked and ended up leaving my job for another that I thought would be more engaging. New job ended up being pretty similar to the old one so I left again after about a year for an "easier" role with better hours where I have more time to spend on hobbies and with family. I think it's all about finding the right balance of satisfaction with your career and satisfaction outside of work.


I feel this.

Switched firms about 1.5 years ago; smaller and now BDO.

I’m still in a funk. I think I just need a whole new life.

My SO tells me, I don’t have to work when we get married, at first, I was like, that’s dumb, now, I’m like, you can be my sugar daddy. We won’t have the double income life I’ve dreamed of, but at least I won’t hate life.


Get a new job somewhere else, you need a change

Interviews need to be monitored and recorded. I can’t tell you how many disappointed dreams I have been sold. It is a complete waste of time to really wait around to be wishful of a call. Gathering up 10 potential applicants to narrow it down to a top 3 and only make one offer is not acceptable. Much like jury duty, applicants should be compensated for their time.


Be honest... which firm came up with this idea?
