As cool as it could have been for a while, the moment comes when your steady job frustrates you. It can be because of a work culture and politics or because the pandemic made you reconsider if your job cost/benefit balance was positive and you might have joined the great resignation. Or the reason sits somewhere else.
For what it’s worth, here is a quick tip I’ve been using to help me decide whether it’s really time for me to change.
All you have to do is to answer the three following questions :
- Do I enjoy my work assignments ?
- Do I enjoy the company of my direct colleagues and my manager ?
- Do I feel satisfied with my current salary package and benefits ?
If the answer is no for at least 2 out of the 3, then you have to seriously start interviewing for job opportunities.
