Has anyone else dealt with a dreaded feeling of career stagnation?
I work for a city that only pays lip service (if that) to planning. I don't want to be here for my entire career but family obligations are keeping me here for now. I don't want to be here too long and then, as I am trying to move on, be looked at as someone who has a high quantity but low quality of experience. I have a pretty good job title here and awesome pay compared to the fairly low level of responsibility that I have. In fact, another impediment to me moving on is finding a job in a more planning friendly place that can pay me what I make here but that I am also qualified for.
I see peers and those with less experience than me doing things that appear to be interesting and unique - projects with a level of complexity and innovation that won't be happening here anytime soon.
If anyone has advice or thought on this please enlighten me.
