It is essential to frequently check in with yourself and understand any signs that suggest you start thinking about moving forward in your career and looking for your next job. We certainly don’t recommend handing in your notice at the drop of a hat but if you’re starting to see any of the following signs, now is precisely the right time to work on lining up your next move.
1. You’re getting the Sunday scaries every week
We all have those times where we wish the weekend could be just a little longer, but if you’re frequently experiencing feelings of dread, apathy, or anxiety about going in to work on Monday, then you are likely to benefit from making a change in your professional life.
2. You aren’t developing
While there isn’t necessarily anything inherently wrong with being comfortable in your role, you’ll know when you’re ready for your next challenge when you start to feel stuck or stagnant.
Learning new things and developing our existing skills are key to staying motivated. If you aren’t being offered new training opportunities and there is no sign of a promotion on the horizon, moving to a new organisation could help you to reignite your spark and transform your feelings towards your professional life.
3. Your values don’t align with those of your employer
The importance of feeling fulfilled within our professional lives really cannot be overstated. If you’re struggling to align your values with those of your employer, resentment can quickly kick in, which can negatively impact every aspect of your life.
The good news is that organisations are motivated by various goals and objectives, so finding your ideal fit won’t be challenging. When you do, you will feel uplifted professionally and feel that you are positively contributing to something that you believe in.
4. You’ve lost sight of your career goals
To keep progressing we all need goals to work towards and maintain our motivation. If you aren’t sure what you want your professional life to look like in 10 years, now is an ideal time to broaden your horizons and take the time to understand exactly what is out there. In the process, you might find your dream role, and it could be one you didn’t even know existed before.
5. You’re clock watching throughout the day
Have you become so adept at your job that you constantly find yourself finishing work at lunchtime and are left twiddling your thumbs until it’s time to clock out? Or perhaps you can manage your workload on autopilot, and are no longer receiving any constructive criticism from your manager because you know your role inside out and back to front?
There are so many fulfilling agency roles out there that will challenge your skillset and provide you with far more job satisfaction in the process. Plus, we all know the days feel so much longer when you don’t have much on your to-do list.
These are all potential pain points that may be resolved by discussing your feelings with your employer. However, there are also many reasons why you may not want or be able to have this type of conversation in your workplace. If this is the case for you, take this as a sign to make your next move.
