Are you in the wrong pew?

Maria Gottschalk, Government Executive Magazine, writes about how you can tell if you are in the wrong job.

Poor matches do happen, she says. Or jobs change and people don't. Or people change and jobs don't.

One sign can be that you feel lost. If tasks leave you feeling unprepared (like the school dream), this can be an indication.

If you feel your strengths are not being used.

There is no challenge, you feel like you are standing still.

Or--do you feel like your team is going one way and you increasingly are at odds?

Do you avoid work--have trouble completing things.

What does the little inner voice say?

If it says, "Hmmmm" or "uh-oh," listen.
