Know when it’s time to move on to a new job

Sometimes you have to work jobs you don't love to pay the bills, and other times you start in a position you think you will love but end up disliking over time. However, this doesn't mean you are stuck in these jobs, and consistently seeking new career opportunities is an important part of growth and moving forward in life. There are many reasons to move on from your job, and knowing when to recognize the signs that you should start looking for a new opportunity will help you minimize the stress and depression that can result from feeling "trapped" in a dead-end position.

Here are a few signs that it's time to start looking:

Daily stress – If you experience uncontrollable stress on a daily basis it might be time to seek out new employment. This could be a sign that your work environment is unhealthy, or simply that you are unhappy with the work you're doing.

Feeling unappreciated – If you don't think you are being paid what your skills are worth, or that you are generally unappreciated, it's time to start looking for a new job. Feeling unappreciated can also affect the quality of your work, making it difficult to balance your professional and personal lives and keep them separate.

No more passion – One of the most important signs that you should be looking for a new job is simply lacking any passion for your current position. If you don't care about the work you're doing, or the company you work for, it's time to move on.
