You are often bored
If you are not being challenged at your current position and you are finding your time at work boring, you should consider asking your employer for more challenging projects to help keep you engaged. If your employer can’t provide this, you may want to consider looking for a new job that will offer you more challenging yet rewarding opportunities.
No opportunities for you to progress
One of the main reasons people leave their current positions is to progress their careers. Talk to your employer and see if there are opportunities for you to progress your career through training or a personal development plan. If your employer can’t guarantee that there are opportunities for you to grow, you may want to look for a new job that offers plenty of career progression.
Your role has never grown
Have you been doing the same tasks since day one? Has your role been identical to when you first started? The goal of every position is to generally grow. You need to be challenged and you should be pushed out of your comfort zone so you can grow. If you are feeling too relaxed at your workplace and not feeling challenged at all, this may be a sign that you need to look for a new company that will help you build on your existing skills and learn new ones.
Not learning anything new
One of the best ways to keep engaged in your current position is by learning new skills and constantly improving your existing skills. If you are not learning anything new, you might want to look for a new role that offers personal training budgets or in-house training schemes. Enhancing your existing skills and learning new skills will help you get to that next step in your career.
You are considering getting a new job already
Are you already thinking that it’s time to move on? Even if you have not started your job search even thinking about getting a new job regularly can be a sign that you are not fully satisfied with your current job. Have a real think about what you enjoy about your job and what you would like to change. Can you make these changes in your current position? If not, it’s time to start your job search.
