Five Signs That Itís Time To Look For A New Job

If youíre not as happy with your job as you were a year ago itís time to step back and analyze your career life. Here are five signs that it might be time to look for a new job.

  1. You dread Mondays

  2. Are often bored at work

  3. Your new boss is a bully

  4. Have no enthusiasm or sense of self-worth

  5. Question your choice of industry or occupation

Any of the above signs indicate a need for change. The biggest career mistake is to ignore those indicators. A head-in-the-sand mentality can lead to a downward career spiral that ends with disappointment and ďwhat ifĒ regrets.

Here are three great ways to facilitate positive change.

If you meet two or more of the five indicators of job dissatisfaction itís probably time to make a change. Donít procrastinate your decision to make a change for the better. As time goes by your work-place problems may very well intensify. If you wait too long you may end up acting in desperation which seldom leads to the best outcomes
