Time For A Job Change

Your current full time job, like everything else in life will never be perfect. However, there are some things that I feel are deal breakers and key signs that it’s probably time for a job change.

1. Not being Compensated Fairly

The average person you ask, including myself will tell you that they probably should be making more at their current job. Yet, when you don’t feel like you’re being compensated fairly and have brought it up to your manager, based on whatever is the average pay of your position in the job market, it’s time to look for a new job.

2. Hate Going To Work When It’s Time

It’s one thing to had a vacation and not be looking forward to your first day back at the job. However, it’s another thing when you literally hate going to work every single day. Furthermore, this can impact your performance in doing your job in a negative way as well.

3. Not Challenge Or Stretch On A Regular

If you’re not being challenge or stretch on a regular at your job that’s an indication that you’re responsibilities aren’t growing and if your responsibilities not growing through the years, it will impact your earning power in making more money at that job in a new position opening or at a new job, especially if you’ve been doing the exact same thing(s) for years.

Consequences To Actions

We are free to choose whatever we want to do in life, but not free from the consequences of those actions. Therefore, it’s imperative that we don’t make important decisions solely based off of how we feel at that certain time but instead factor in how it might impact us short and long term.

For example, if you don’t like your current job and it’s your single source of income that you got coming in monthly to pay for expenses and you can’t afford to miss one or two bi-weekly paychecks in a row, it’s not wise to quit that job before you’re officially offered a new job opportunity, no matter how much you currently hate it and ready for a change.

Finding a new job that you want might take longer than plan. Thus, no need to get behind on bills when this easily can be avoided by showing patience while you’re looking for something better and new for work.

Last, you possibly might end up settling for a new job that you really don’t want, but have to take because you need the money and basically end up looking for another job as soon as you start the new one because you didn’t look at things from the a big picture view and waited for the right opportunity to come along.
