If you’re exhibiting any of these symptoms, it’s time for a new job.
1. You can do the job with your hands tied behind your back, eyes closed, while twirling in circles.
If your job isn’t challenging you, you’ve learned all that you needed to. It’s great that you’ve masters your job, but you can be using your mastered skills somewhere else – and learning more new skills.
2. You’ve realized there’s no room to move up? Time to move on.
You don’t want to be stuck in one position forever. If there’s no room to advance at your company get the experience you need then move to a new company with opportunities.
3. You can’t remember when you stop counting hours and started counting the seconds to the end of the day and the milliseconds to the weekend.
Everyone has the right to enjoy their job. If you really hate your job find something you love. It will be worth the effort to find your passion.
These are short and sweet little red flags to move on, but that’s all it takes. One little red flag that you could easily ignore because its easier to just stay safe where you are. But staying where you are really isn’t safe, it holds you back. Staying for too long may prevent you from advancing later in your career. Look for the red flags, create a plan to move on and then notify your company.
