After months of job-hunting, you finally grabbed the first opportunity that came your way. You compromised on work description, salary, dignity and more.
Ever hear the line: I know you are talented and have a depth of experience but we need only a fraction of your talent and work experience so we are proud to offer a compensation for only what we need. Translation: Please take a "Pay cut".
Two weeks into your new gig you finally face reality. This is a disaster! So what would you do?
a. Tough it. Stay miserable and suck it up.
b. Seek another job
c. Seek positive aspects in your new work environment. Develop a new attitude, learn new things, seek better ways of interacting with coworkers and your manager. Make peace.
d. Whine about it to colleagues and friends at any given opportunity.
Are you or someone you know in this situation?
How do you or they handle it?
