It feels like you have been in the same job forever. You have been doing the same old thing, day in and day out. Or maybe your job is quite varied, but you just don’t get any satisfaction out of it. Maybe you need to assess your current work situation and see just how suited you are for your career and vice versa. Is it time for a career change? If any of these situations apply to you, then it may be time to break out the help wanted ads.
You Feel Burned-out
Getting out of bed in the morning is a chore. You dread coming into work, you are tired all the time, and you feel as if you just can’t go on. Burnout is the number one indicator that it is time for a change.
This Job Was Not Your First Choice
When you took this job, it was not your first choice. You had your sights set on something else. Maybe your family pressed you into this career; maybe necessity dictated that you take the job. Whatever the case, if the fact that it wasn’t your first choice is starting to weigh on your mind, then make the move.
You are Uncomfortable at Work
If you are uncomfortable at work, whether it is about being physically uncomfortable with the environment or people at your workplace unsettling you, you can consider a work change. If you are uncomfortable to the point of illness, then it is time to make a career change.
The Passion is Gone
The honeymoon is over; you are no longer in love with your job. You are bored. Boredom leads to poor production and poor quality in your work. You don’t want to get to that point. Find something that you love and make the move now.
You Have Gone as Far as You Can
There is nowhere else for you to go. You have moved through the ranks and gone as far as you can go. You have capped out on your salary. You have gone as far as you can go in this job. If being stalled in your career is not your idea of success, then it is time to begin looking elsewhere.
Your Skills Exceed your Duties
You have honed your skills through the years that you have been on this job. Maybe you have even gone to school and learned new skill sets. Whatever the case, if the skills you possess exceed what you are doing on your job, then take the leap and move on to a new career.
You aren’t Happy
Bottom line, if you aren’t happy in your job then you need to find something else. Of course, work is work, but you should at least enjoy what you do. Enjoying your work makes it much easier to get up every day and studies show that people who love their jobs are more productive and successful than those who don’t. If you aren’t happy in your current job, find a job that does make you happy. It will make going to work much easier and make working much more pleasurable.
