Looking at that list, I do not fall into any of the 5 for my current job. The only thing that I can say about my job is that (sometimes) the hours can be a bit long (but not nearly as bad when I just say "no" and go home, now that I have a family waiting for me at home) and that I am not being paid what I feel I am worth. I do get raises, though, and I do like the job, and I do make enough to "get by". Hopefully it keeps being enough to get by.

Non-work stuff during work hours? Not only is that unethical, it's also the best way to deep-six your work ethic.


I speak as one with experience.

I've posted this before. As soon as your job starts getting easy (most people would say it's getting fun), start training your replacements. Your boss should be sad you're leaving but able to immediately point to your recent accomplishments and feel "covered" by your trainees.

Don't "make do" with being bored. Don't settle. (Don't cheat your employers, either -- don't abandon them without paying off their investment in training.) Above all, don't mistake laziness in your career for loyalty to your employer.

Yup. Great article!
