What to Do When You've Outgrown Your Job

What to Do When You've Outgrown Your Job

Therese Droste | Monster Contributing Writer

Make a List

Compile a list of the new responsibilities you’ve taken on, and estimate the amount of time you spend in each area. For example, let’s say your job has expanded, and now you train new hires. Write out how many hours per day, week or month you spend on that task. Also write out how many hours you spend on the duties you were originally hired to do. You may find that you are doing the work of 1.5 full-time employees. When you do meet with your boss, present this information and focus on the fact that you’re actually saving the company money, because your boss would have to hire another person to do these jobs if you weren’t.
