Stuck in a Rut? Here’s What to Do

Your shipyard career is not static. Like any other aspect of your life, if you find that something isn’t working for you, it’s time to change. Many of us find ourselves stuck in a rut when it comes to our jobs thinking we don’t have any choices or we feel obligated. If you’re stuck, it is time to become more fluid about your job. Here are some things you can do to dig yourself out and improve your shipyard career.   


You’re Not Challenged Enough   

There are many different levels at any company you work with. Some shipyards don’t have much room for advancement, and new employees know that when they accept the job. Larger organizations may have opportunities throughout their company that can appeal to various aspects of your personality. The moment you feel like you are no longer challenged, it can be time to make a change in your career path. 

You Don’t Have Good Work/Life Balance  

If you are finding you spend more time at work than with your own family, it may be time to consider a new opportunity. There are many ways to integrate your work and your life together, and there are companies that are willing to work with you and your needs. Consider a shipyard willing to work with you to ensure that you have a good balance in your life. They will understand that your time away from work is just as valuable and it also helps you increase your productivity on the job.   

You’re Just Not Feeling It 

Career burn out can plague individuals at any time in the course of their shipyard careersIf you feel passion or excitement for what you’re doing, your ability to contribute is compromised. To solve this problem, it’s important to assess your needs and what makes you happy, and change the course of your career path. You may be surprised at how well your current skills transfer to a new environment, such as a shipyard, and your success lies in your presentation.
