top indicators it's time to find a new role

I am often asked by clients how to know when it's time to move on from their current company. Sometimes the answer is clear, but other times it's just a nagging feeling. There are several signs to look out for that can indicate it's time for a change.

Here are some of the top indicators that it's time to move on:

  1. You're no longer growing: When you first started at your company, you may have had a clear path for growth and development. But if you've hit a ceiling and are no longer being challenged or given opportunities to learn, it may be time to move on to a company that can offer you the growth and development you're seeking.

  2. You're constantly stressed: A certain level of stress is normal in any job, but if you're consistently feeling overwhelmed and anxious, it may be time to consider a change. Chronic stress can lead to burnout and negatively impact your mental and physical health.

  3. Your values don't align with the company: If you find yourself constantly at odds with the values and mission of your company, it may be time to move on. It's important to work for a company that aligns with your personal values and ethics, and that you can feel proud to represent.

  4. You don't feel appreciated: Feeling undervalued or unappreciated can take a toll on your motivation and overall job satisfaction. If you've tried to communicate your concerns and nothing has changed, it may be time to find a company that values and recognizes your contributions.

  5. Your work-life balance is non-existent: Work-life balance is crucial for overall well-being, and if you're consistently working long hours or weekends, it may be time to move on. Look for a company that values work-life balance and promotes a healthy work environment.

  6. You're not passionate about the work: If you find yourself consistently bored or disengaged with the work you're doing, it may be time to move on. It's important to work for a company that aligns with your passions and interests, and that you feel excited to contribute to.

If you're experiencing any of these signs, it may be time to start exploring new job opportunities. Remember, it's okay to move on from a company that no longer serves you and your career goals. Trust yourself and your instincts, and know that there are plenty of opportunities out there for you even in this climate to find a fulfilling and satisfying career path.
