Leaving a job is no easy feat, especially if you’ve been working there for a long time. There are a few central signs you should follow to determine whether or not it’s finally time to leave your job:
This is probably the most tell-tale sign that you need to leave your job. If you’re bored, you are no longer getting the multitude of benefits associated with having a job besides just collecting a paycheck. A job should be stimulating, engaging, and inspiring. If you don’t have those feelings for your job anymore (but once used to), it may be time to say goodbye and to look for a new opportunity.
The Company No Longer Needs You-
Sometimes, it’s possible that a person works at a company for so long that they outgrow that specific job. For example, if you were one of the sole employees and used to wear multiple hats, but now only do a fourth of the tasks you once did, you might feel as though the company no longer needs you. This is not a good feeling to have, even though there’s a good chance that it could be true. Perhaps it’s time to look for more challenging work.
You Want to Use Different Skills-
If you want to use different skills and your employer isn’t giving you the opportunity to use them, you might need to look for a different job. You’re supposed to be able to grow and learn throughout your career, so it’s perfectly reasonable to want to find a new job or change careers if you’re not receiving that stimulation at work.
