I read all the job related threads here, and I have to admit I get anxiety attacks just reading some of them - especially the job search ones.

I don't know how people do it. The whole looking for a job process terrifies me, and it is probably why I have spent 13+ years of my nearly 15 years of employment history with the same company. (I have had one other "real" job with another company when I was 18-19 that lasted for less than a year before I ended up where I am now.)

I realize not everyone looks for a new job because they want to, and a lot of times it's because they have to, but I also know some people who are restless and get bored if they stay at one job too long. That concept is so foreign to me.

I do wonder sometimes if I am missing out on something better because I am too chicken to take a risk, but for the most part, I love my job, it pays well, the benefits are good, I have a lot of independence, and I've managed to advance without having to seek it out.

The running joke around work is that I will be one of those people who will be one of those rare people celebrating my 50th anniversary with the company in the future because I will be there until I retire.

STAY there.

The economy in the last years have made the job market HORRENDOUS. I have been dealing with this problem of supporting myself for 5 years its been the biggest force behind a drinking problem I am trying to control. If and when you do want to move on, the word NETWORKING is key. There is a "hidden job market" that really pisses me off because I don't have a "network" to help me.

The next consideration is actually GETTING the job. My sister got a good paying job but at 49 years old she is CHAINED hook line and sinker to it. If she even THINKS of putting herself/family first, she could get bounced.

Don't wreck your good fortune.

I really have no plans to leave.

I've had recruiters contact me about jobs that pay more, have better titles, etc. and I won't so much as go for an interview to check it out. The thought just causes me massive anxiety.

Just wondering aloud if maybe I am hurting my own career by being so afraid of change...
