Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about feeling in a job slump and want to move to one with challenge:
I am a professional in the IT (information technology) field and have been for the last 20 years of my life. More specifically I am in the area of computer operations, and it looks like me to I can no further. I have expressed interest to my manager and to his managers that I would like to move on to other more challenging positions in the company. It looks like nothings happening; however, I see people in my area moving on to better positions and I don’t understand why. Some were even my subordinates with way less experience than I have, but they have moved onto better challenging positions. I feel like I’m in a slump and not being intellectually challenged. I’ve been self evaluating to see if it is me.
