If you’re looking for the next step in your career, you need to be able to spot opportunities. Not every opportunity, at first glance, looks like the right one. Conversely, not every opportunity that seems like a sure-win ends up being a great fit. So, how do you know it’s time to look for a new job and, secondly, how do you know you’ve spotted the right opportunity for you?
3 Indicators That You Are Ready For a New Job
1. You Are Motivated To Grow
Not everyone wants to grow their career. And that’s ok. If you are motivated to grow as a person and professional, you’ll likely be looking for ways to do that. If you’re motivated like this, you probably have career goals written down and you know what you want. Growth can often come from going to a new experience. Some people are motivated to leave a current job because they don’t like it for some reason or another, but just moving to a new job does not automatically promote growth. Looking for a new job? Look for jobs that will allow to you grow either by building up new skill sets or providing a different opportunity that will challenge you.
2. Your Current Job isn’t Allowing You to Grow the Way You Want
Your current job may have been the right one for you a few years ago, but if it is not allowing you to go after your goals, it may be time to look for a new job. When you are in this position, look for companies that will serve as a catalyst for your career to help you achieve your goals.
3. You’ve built up the right skill-set For the opportunities you want
After you’ve determined that you’re motivated to grow and your current job isn’t allowing you to do so, one of the ways to determine if another job is the right move is to identify if it will help to sharpen your skills or create new ones. The opportunity may be with a great company but not help you chase your goals. If you are motivated to grow, you need to be purposeful about your next job.
