In the previous blog post, we examined the situation with my client where she had completely surpassed the growth in her current workplace. We looked at why she missed these signs, and then we explored the first 3 tell-tale signs that let you know it’s time to move on to a new job.
Today, I will explore two additional signs that are good indicators that it’s time to move on to a new job. Here they are.
Sign #4. They don’t share your values.
This is one of the hardest but most crystal clear signs. When your core values—such as integrity, honesty, freedom to share your opinion, balance in work and life, etc—when those come into direct conflict with that of your company, then it’s a sign to leave.
You will always be able to find an employer that is aligned to your core values.
Sign #5. The passion is gone.
Passion may be a luxury, but if you are a serious career gal, then you need this little ingredient to sustain you on your long journey. So demand it.
If you feel no passion towards your company, its culture, and its people, if you don’t feel a rise out of going into work each day and interacting with your co-workers or partaking in the culture, why are you there?
Find a place that excites you and one that you can brag to friends and family about. This may seem small but your internal happiness is key to your outside career growth. It’s all connected, and you cannot neglect one and hope to accomplish the other. So always develop your awareness so that you can create a holistic approach to your career and your life.
