Everyone has a different definition of what it means to be valued at work. This means that there can be a ton of different warning signs that you’re undervalued, and not all of them are obvious. Career experts shared with “Huffington Post” some of the main signs you should look out for.
- You feel invisible in meetings because no one takes your opinion seriously. Your ideas are ignored, or worse, others pass of your ideas as their own.
- You’re totally checked out with your job. Have you noticed you’re more disengaged than usual? It could come from feeling like you’re unappreciated.
- You are the go-to person for office work, but not for assignments that will actually get you promoted. Think making coffee or taking notes – they’re essentially thankless office tasks that likely won’t get you promoted.
- You’re being micromanaged. Does your boss monitor you instead of manage you? Do you feel like you don’t have any autonomy? You’re likely being micromanaged.
- You are doing a great job, yet you’re underpaid. Yes, it all stems down to money. How much you’re paid is a big indicator of how you’re valued for your work. If you get rave reviews but the money just doesn’t match the words, you’re undervalued.
