Seeking Career/Job Advice for a Millennial Job Hopper
I've made some great progressive moves in my career and I'm about to make another one. My issue is that I feel like your cliche, stereotypical Millennial Job Hopper.

I'm afraid that I don't know how to maintain a relationship with my boss/company and keep it healthy to the point I could stay there for over 5 years. I don't have that experience on my resume, the relationship with my current boss has turned cold and I'm worried maybe it's me and there's something I can do to maintain a better relationship going forward.

I'm reaching out to the wisdom of the OT for some best practices, mantras and mindsets that I can take into my new job to start off great and to keep that relationship improving and growing with a longer term mentality.

I don't have much so far, it might sound stupid, but one thing I want to do is say "bye" to my boss everyday with a little quick chit chat or something...I dunno. What's the OT got to say? Would love a book suggestion or anything you've got.

Are you asking how to build a relationship with another human being?


I say this a lot as a joke, but you might be on the spectrum.

Everyone goes through highs and lows in office relationships. If you’re comfortable with everything otherwise, just buckle down and do the work, act like everyday is an interview and you’ll be fine. If you’re dissatisfied with other more crucial aspects of the job (hours/commute/upward mobility), consider leaving.

That sentence sounds like you have been brainwashed by some corporate robot. It's like a caricature of the corporate lingo threads we have here from time to time.

If you enjoy being outside, get trained to be a surveyor. They work on their own and are backlogged on jobs. I do real estate appraisals and those guys are always busy and always seem to enjoy doing it.

I'm 44 and will be retired for good in about 2-3 years but if I were young, I would transition to surveying.

I find it beneficial to check in periodically. I give my boss a status report on a few projects if I feel that he needs to know that information. I make an effort to tell the boss when I'm heading out or if I have something coming up that he would be interested in knowing.

All in all, your boss may be different depending on the profession but it probably would be beneficial have a respectful rapport with your boss. I know that I would appreciate it if I was your boss.

Not everyone in the office is liked. You sound like that person.

If you aren't the type of person your boss would normally hang around outside of work, chit chat isn't going to be endearing. If you are, then you likely wouldn't be having these issues. That being said, the other way to have a good relationship with the boss is to be an excellent producer. Effect the bottom line positively and you will remain in the good graces of your boss.
