Is it Time to Move On from Your Current Job?

Action Steps

  1. Leave for the Right Reasons
    Make sure your reasons for leaving are things that can’t be fixed or aren’t your own problems that you’ll take with you to a new job. Be prepared to talk about your reasons for leaving at new job interviews.
  2. Have Another Opportunity in Hand
    The best option is to have a written job offer in hand before leaving. Failing that, have several opportunities identified that offer you more than your current job and that you have a greater than a 75% probability of landing.
  3. Leave Gracefully on a High Note
    Be sure to give proper notice and leave your position in great shape for the next person. You may want to maintain contact with people at your current job as part of your professional network. You may also look to do part-time or consulting work for your old employer some day.

If All Else Fails And You Get a Flat Out No

Take Time Off
Get away from the job for a few days and reflect on your decision. See how you feel not being at work & compare that with how it feels to go back. I think you’ll then know what you need to do.

Remember, it’s your life. It’s time to step up and get more than just a paycheck out of your job. After all, you spend about 60% of your time there.
