When Is It Time to Look for a New Job?

July 16, 2015 03:30 AM

jobsearchnewspaper-300x222 Are you filled with dread on Sunday evenings? Do you find yourself hitting the “snooze” button one too many times every morning? Are there a million other things you’d rather do than go to work? The Harvard Business Review recently published an excellent article detailing the five signs it’s time for a new job. I highly recommend reading the whole article as it shares some great statistics about job satisfaction and goes into some pretty interesting details about what makes people feel fulfilled in their work. In the meantime, here’s a quick breakdown of the signs that should tell you when it’s time to look for a new job.

  • You are not learning /You underperform - If you’re not challenging yourself then you are not growing in your career. Make sure you’re performing at your highest level or else your resume and job skills will suffer.
  • You are undervalued - No matter what perks your job offers, it’s hard to feel at home with a company if they don’t value you and your capabilities.
  • You’re in it only for the money - Being well compensated is certainly an important factor of any career, but if it’s the only thing keeping you at a job, it might be time to reevaluate your position.
  • You can’t stand your boss - “As the saying goes, people join companies but they quit their bosses.” Great leadership is an invaluable part of any organization; make sure you are working with someone who’s empowering you and your career.
