Frustration

I'm so frustrated when the owner of the company has no clue what I do for him. Not only do I do all of his Human Resource stuff, I also have 85% of the company that reports directly to me. I've taken on more work with no pay increase. I haven't had a raise in close to 7 years. So, now that I'm looking to leave the company to better myself and my kids lives now he is treating me like crap and jumping all over me for what other managers do wrong. I have every right to better myself. I've been working for him for 10 years. We are looking to move out of State but where we really want to go there isn't any decent paying jobs there. If anyone has any suggestions on what to do and on how to look for jobs in different states. Please let me know.

Have you considered working remote from home? There may be opportunities to do so. Perhaps even as a consultant. Don’t sell yourself short.

We all have a breaking point and when we reach this point it triggers our fight or flight mood it is up to you to decide witch way to go do you think this job is worth fighting for ir is it time to start over.

Wait a minute... did you TELL him you're thinking of moving?

Deer Fern is right - I hope you didn't tell your boss you were looking.. not good. He is clearly taking advantage of you (by not increasing your pay for all the responsibility and loyalty you have provided) so certainly understand your wanting to leave. (I was in the same situation years ago and finally left. They begged me to come back.) So just do what you need to do to find a better job. Apply online for any out of state jobs and make them pay for you to fly out for any interviews. Also be sure to research any company before you accept an offer and move your family. Good luck!

No I didn't tell anyone that I was planning on moving. I don't believe that it is any of his business that I'm looking to leave the state.

At some point you have to put your foot down and say no. Enough is enough. Think of an exit strategy while at the same time look for better job opportunities. Good luck!!!

It's hard to look for a job in a different state, but it's not impossible. When we were looking to relocate from CA to Oregon, I came up here during my spring break and visited several college campuses. About 6 months after we got settled, I landed part time teaching jobs at 3 of the campuses. One kept me on for 11 years while I took various other jobs to supplement my income. It's not the same as having a steady job in a more populated area, but the quality of life here is better. We all make trade-offs.

I am sorry to hear about your situation. I can imagine looking a job in the state you live in is already hard. Then to try to look in another state will be a challenge. Don't let that get in the way though. Where there is a WILL there is a WAY.
