So I have been getting regularly burnt out at my current job and am considering a change. Looking for some un-biased, outside opinions on which direction I should take.
Basics: I am high-end bookkeeper, low end accountant. I learn super fast, but I have not used certain analysis skills since school 4-5 years ago.
There is no option for promotion in my company. Future of company is uncertain long term (will be good for another few years probably, but I'm only 30 so I need to think farther than that).
I am good at my current job, but things that have been festering under surface (and unable to change) are starting to build up and I'm getting burnt out more regularly.
So with that said:
-Anyone have experience with temp work, such as that offered by Robert Half? Is it steady enough to be viable option, or am I going to have to closely watch my finances and may end up with periods of now work?
-Is considering temp work a step back when I am currently a FT Salary employee?
-Should I consider a pay cut if the commute is much shorter than what I have now (say half the time)?
-Am I being silly for even rocking the boat? I get along (most days) with bosses, casual dress code, can do my work well...
-How do you be picky about next career change without coming off harsh/difficult person?
