Signs You Should Start Looking for a New Job
28 December 2017
In contrast to previous generations, today we are likely to have a numerous amount of jobs throughout our career. This could be down to a number of positive reasons – higher wages, gaining different experience, moving location. But when the reasons behind leaving your job are not so positive, it can sometimes be harder to realise that we should be considering a job move. Here are five tell-tale signs that it could be time for you to contemplate looking for a new job:
(1) Feeling Unmotivated Everyday
We’ve all had those days – resenting the sound of our alarm, looking at our to do list with a feeling of dread, and counting the minutes until we can go home. However, these feelings should be something we feel only on our worse days. If you feel like this every day, it might be time for a wake-up call and, in other words, a change of job.
(2) Bad Working Environment
Other than at home, we undoubtedly spend most of our time at work, meaning the environment can have a substantial effect on us. A bad relationship with our boss or colleagues can therefore affect our general attitude to work. If you work in a toxic environment and have tried to resolve the issue with no avail, it could be time to move on to somewhere else.
(3) You’re Not Reaching Your Full Potential
It’s not big-headed or boastful to think you could do better regarding your job role. If you’ve been in the job long-term, and are still doing the same type and level of tasks you did when you first started – it’s more than likely than you can do better. Speak to your boss about the possibility of acquiring some new responsibilities, but if nothing comes of it, consider a change.
(4) You’re Short-tempered Inside and Outside of Work
If you’re consistently unhappy at work, this will show not only while you’re there, but also when you leave. Even if you haven’t noticed it, it’s likely that those close to you have. If you’re unhappy with your job, it’s important to consider that this could be the cause of your grumpiness even outside of the office.
(5) You’ve Already Considered Getting a New Job
Maybe the thought of quitting your job and going for a new opportunity has crossed your mind more than once, but you’ve seen it as more of a distant dream. If this is the case for you, it could be time to turn it into a reality. If you weren’t unhappy in your current role, you probably wouldn’t have considered quitting more than once.
