Why do I always want to quit my job six months in?


Pretty much title. I’ve always struggled with wanting to stay in a position longer than six months. I previously thought this was just something I would find in my college jobs that weren’t related to my career, but I started my career job six months ago and find myself wanting to leave.

I’ve been with the company for 7 years as a volunteer, two of those years were in my current department before I was hired on full time. The job is perfect for me but I’m super unhappy, just like every other job or internship I had. Has anyone else felt like this?


Could it have something to do with expectations being put on you at that time? When you start a new job, there’s a honeymoon period and you have fewer expectations because you’re in training. After a while, they start expecting you to know shit, and maybe the scrutiny makes the job less enjoyable.
