FEELING BLUE? MAYBE IT’S TIME FOR A NEW JOB

temp agencies recruiting agencies staffing agencies

Job hopping is something that no one wants to show on their resume.  It shows you aren’t loyal.  That you potentially haven’t been very successful with your previous employers.  It shows that after a company spends money on hiring you, that there is a chance that money will be wasted in the end.  That isn’t a good thing and one that you should always try and avoid.

With that said, it isn’t taboo to change jobs throughout your career.  Most people want to have a job that offers them a chance to grow or expand their skill set.  Unfortunately not every job can offer that to you.  So what do you do when you feel there is nothing for your future with your current employer?  It’s as simple as making a change.

If you aren’t performing well at your current job, you likely know when the time comes that you should look for a new opportunity or you risk not having a job in the near future.  But if you are performing well, knowing when it is time to make a change can be a hard thing to do.  You don’t want to leave too early and miss out on a career that you would later wish you didn’t leave.  But there are some warning signs to keep an eye on for when it might be time to reach out to a recruitment or staffing agency.

Boredom – When you feel your job is mundane, or just flat boring, it might be time to start looking elsewhere.  I don’t mean that if you do the same thing every day, without much change, that you aren’t going to be happy.  Most jobs require you to do the same thing without much deviation.  That’s perfectly fine and you may not even realize it because you enjoy your work.  But if you are the type of person that needs change, and feel a daily burn that you don’t want to go to work and do the same thing over and over again, then the boredom you are experiencing will continue to grow.  As it grows, your productivity will likely decline.  Time to make a change before management makes the change for you.

Anxiety – If an 8 hour day seems like it takes 20 hours, or weekends seem like they last 3 hours, it might be time to start thinking about your next job.  There is not much worse than spending most of your non-working hours thinking about how much you dread going back to work the next day.  It makes life unenjoyable and could have some drastic effects on your home life.  You become more irritable than normal, anxious and generally an unhappy person.  Life is too short to be that stressed about your job so call a recruitment agency and see if there are other, potentially better, opportunities out there.

Undesirable Changes – Nobody can predict the future.  At least not that has been scientifically proven anyway.  Therefore when a less than desirable change happens within a company, it might be time to start looking elsewhere.  Undesirable changes could be anything of importance.  Maybe your company was recently acquired by another company.  Or maybe the compensation structure has changed.  Possibly a new CEO comes to your organization and changes the whole company philosophy, one of which you do not agree on.  Whatever it might be, sometimes a major change at a company could trigger your thoughts on looking for your next opportunity.  If you perceive the changes as a good thing, then there is no reason to leave.  But if you feel the direction of the company, the new pay structure, or new management is something you just can’t see eye to eye on, then start thinking about your next move.

Again, nobody wants to change jobs like the wind changes direction.  But sometimes it is time to make a change and instead of plodding through life unchallenged or unhappy, call a staffing agency and see what they can do to help you.  There is no reason to remain that unhappy with your current job out there without at least first looking to see if there is something else better.

Sometime the grass is actually greener on the other side.
