Many of us are unaware of the importance of pursuing a correct job. What might work for our best friend from college might just be the worst possible fit for us. So the key is to be aware of what exactly motivates you and brings out the best in you.
The idea of being in the same company till the end of your working life is long over and done with and frankly, rightly so. But at the same time, when do you start looking for a new opportunity? When do you know that your time in a particular organization is over?
Here are a few signs which will help you realize that it is time to move on:
Short of new opportunities
Well, this one is a bummer. After five years at an organization, you still find yourself doing the same thing day in and day out. Your efforts to get a new job role are ignored; your boss gives you `Excellent’ rating but you fee stagnated and there is nothing new to do. Well, my friend, this is a sure shot sign of logging on a job portal or to call your best friend in an organization you are vying to work for. Don’t delay or procrastinate…make that call NOW!!
Work more, pay same
Another disappointment is that your employer is reluctant or unenthusiastic to increase the wages. Here also the employer might be satisfied with your work but is unwilling to go for a wage hike. You know what that means…Time to look for a newer better-paying job opportunity.
Putting up with a BAD boss
Possibly one of the biggest reason for the workforce to look for a job is a crappy boss. Doesn’t acknowledge your hard work; claims your work as his; is not bothered about your growth as a professional…the reasons can be many but the conclusion is the same: it is time for you to pack your bags and swiftly hit doors of another company.
Your passion is something else
You feel like a square peg in a round hole. You wanted to be a writer but instead, find yourself working as Executive Assistant to a Chief Executive Officer. It might be a well paying job but is unlikely to make you happy. Accept it and find work in keeping with your true calling.
Your coordination with your peers and subordinates, work culture of your organization and your own diligence streamlines your quest to fulfill your goals more wisely. The key is to overcome the inhibitions and have a firm belief in yourself.
Important thing is to recognize the signs and make an informed decision. Find out what works best for you… an insightful today may vitalize a better tomorrow.
