Marie's Answer: Leaving an abusive, dishonest boss was a smart move. Not only did he make your life miserable, but his financial mismanagement could also have caused you legal problems. Now that you’ve escaped, you must calmly focus on the future.
• Don’t waste time second-guessing your decision. When you consider your shrinking salary and lack of medical insurance, the psycho manager may seem less dreadful. But you know that you needed to leave.
• Think of this change as a two-step process:
1. Get away from the horrible boss.
2. Find the best new job possible.
You completed Step 1 by taking your current position. Now you can concentrate on Step 2.
• Before starting another job search, clearly define your "must-have” requirements, such as salary level, challenging work, medical benefits, a sane boss. Then list the "nice-to-haves," like location or leave time.
• Now you’re ready to look for that ideal position. A perfect match is unlikely but see how close you can come. Check out Five Key Job-Seeking Skills for more Office Coach job-search tips.
Once you find a job with more suitable compensation, give your current employer plenty of notice and finish up all outstanding work. The company probably didn’t expect to be replacing you this soon, so you want to be especially considerate when you leave.
