Counteroffers, DON’T DO IT – Career Suicide

It’s everything you want, career advancement, higher salary, great location and an exciting future ahead of you!  You have carefully thought about your resignation, you have told yourself; “Keep it business, don’t make it personal, short and sweet, don’t offend and don’t burn any bridges”.   The moment you hand in your resignation and tell your boss, you are leaving, she says, “What did they offer you, I will match it, you are valuable to us, we don’t want to lose you!”   But before you accept that counteroffer, consider the following reasons why that last-minute decision could be one of the last decisions that you make with this company.

Career envy: we’ve all had it, but have we all overcome it?

As someone who battled with this for many years, I can confidently tell you that this type of envy is not something that is easily treated, nor is it easy to identify. You become this person who ends up being a shell of who you “once were”; you wake up one morning and find yourself at the bottom of some deep dark hole and you don’t know how you ended up there…

Let me back up a few years and give you a better understanding of how I ended up where I am today… When I was in high school, my parents encouraged me to pursue whatever career I wanted, but in their experience and very strong opinion, a “useful degree in business” was best. Read More…
