Do you ever question whether you've found the right job? Maybe you say to yourself that what you have is "good" or "okay" or that it pays the bills. For many of us, we get bogged down in the day to day monotony that makes it difficult to discern "okay" from "great." We all have moments of frustration with fellow coworkers, and at times, we are performing tasks that feel menial or redundant. These every day job realities can cause confusion. Have we settled or is this just normal career ups and downs? These questions can stymie our movement to search for a new job and stay planted in our current position. Here are three signs you love what you do and three signs that it is time to move on.
How you know you've found the right job
How you know when you should start looking for a new job
Making the decision to leave your job or start looking for a new one is scary. It is a major life decision, especially if you have been somewhere for a long time. You should always weigh your options (pros and cons), but remember this: sometimes it is worthwhile just to look and see what else is out there, especially if you are bored or dreading every Monday on the calendar. Looking at job boards and getting a feel for what's out there helps you decide if you want to take the next step...submitting a resume. It's little steps along the way that lead you to your end goal. Whatever you do, don't settle and don't give up.
