When is it time to change jobs?

There was a time when your job was your job forever. Thankfully, those days are long gone. Nowadays it is perfectly normal to change careers at any stage of your life. In fact, many employers are impressed by the initiative of people who are willing to try something new. Starting a new career can be scary, but it can enrich your life and broaden your skillset.

Here are four sure signs that it's time for a change.

You dread going into work

If you spend the entire weekend dreading the return to work, it's probably a sign that there's something wrong. It may be a particular problem with someone in the office, or it may be that you simply don't enjoy the work. Either way, going to work shouldn't be a chore.

There is no room for advancement

There's nothing worse than being stuck in a job with no future. For work to be fulfilling we have to feel like it's leading somewhere. If you've climbed as high as you can in your current job and there is no chance of going any further, now might be a good time to look elsewhere.

You don't feel proud of your company

Work isn't just about earning money. Most of us like to feel like we are also doing something worthwhile and will choose jobs that make a positive difference. You may have been proud to work for your company at first, but maybe they have changed direction in recent years and you no longer agree with their values. If you are reluctant to tell people who you work for, it's probably time for a change.

You don't feel appreciated

We all need some positive reinforcement now and again. If you feel that your contributions aren't recognised, or your suggestions are being ignored, it's time to move on.
