Career Burnout Assessment
Why You Should Take This Assessment
Career burnout has become a more common problem. If you are burned out, you may feel emotionally exhausted, overextended, and inadequate. It may cause you to withdraw from co-workers and clients and make it harder to succeed and be productive at work.
Many factors can lead to burnout, including personality traits and workplace climate. Studies have been done on certain industries (like health care) and specific jobs (like mental health work, police work, firefighting, nursing, and teaching) to better understand career burnout. Most of the principles learned during these studies apply to any type of job.
Career burnout comes on gradually, in phases, typically over weeks to months. Take this assessment to find out if you may be at risk for career burnout and how to prevent it. Preventing and treating burnout is important for everyone. People who feel positive about their work are more productive, take less time off, and change jobs less often. You will feel happier and more satisfied.
