2. Feel burned out
When you have noticed some negative changes in your health, you may need to review and measure your stress level. Does the stress from work impact not only your physical exhaustion but also your emotions and quality of sleep? When your health is suffering, you should think of looking for a job change.
3. No career progression in a long time
Everyone should have their own career goal. If you stay still for too long, no matter how comfortable you feel at work or how much you like your company, you run the risk of losing out on opportunities. Everyone needs an objective assessment of their situation occasionally. Maybe, the job is no longer suitable for you, or you have outgrown your current position. Please keep this in mind: new challenges and higher requirements are opportunities for your self-development.
4. Toxic working environment
Are the comments from your boss and your colleagues constructive to your work? Or do they seem to be more criticisms and personal attacks? Suggestions can help you improve your productivity at work, but negative outside factors will have a significant impact on your performance at work. In the long run, it will affect your career development and mental health. Maybe, changing jobs with a better working environment is a better choice for you.
5. Upskill yourself and ready for more challenge
When you set up a clear plan for your career, you should also do in-depth research about the industries and companies you want to work for. Before changing jobs, it’s time to increase your competencies, upskill, and retrain thus enabling you to be better qualified and focused to meet the bigger and more rewarding challenges ahead. This is a smart preparation before a recession in the economy or a downturn in your industry.
