Are you starting to notice that your work environment is becoming a bit stale? Perhaps the company you work for isn’t very forward thinking, or your ideas are being stifled due to a poor manager or an oppressive work culture.
Chances are that if you are thinking that you might need to change job, then you probably do. Most people only start thinking about their employment situtation when they are unhappy at work, or they are needing the next challenge in their career.
Many people hang onto a job that they don’t really like because they feel nice and secure. They understand what is required of them in the role, and things are easy. Unfortunately, “easy” can often equal boring or repetitive. If you want to get ahead, one of the best ways is to constantly challenge yourself to do bigger and better things. If you are finding that that’s just not possible in your current work environment, then you really need to ask yourself if you are happy to continue doing what you are doing, or if it is time for a change?
I personally believe that it’s in everyone’s best interests if you leave a job on good terms with the people you work with. The reason for this is that you never know what the future will hold, and you might have to work with these people in the future – they may even be hiring you for a new position sometime down the track.
So when you do decide that it’s time to leave, do so with grace and try your best not to burn any bridges. Telling your boss that you just can’t stand this place any longer isn’t going to go down well. Let them know that you have reached a point in your career where you need new challenges and that you feel the best way forward for you is to look external to the organization.
