Seven Warning Signs Your Current Job Isn’t Right For You
The average person has seven careers over his or her lifetime and an even greater number of individual jobs. Chances are, at least a few of them are going to be a bad fit.
Rather than dwell on what you’re not doing, try to see this as a good thing — each “wrong” job provides information and experience you need to make better decisions about your career. That said, if you find yourself planning an exit strategy instead of preparing for work on Sunday night, it might be time to move on from your current position.
Finding the right job requires time, patience and, let’s be honest, the occasional grunt work. The first step to something better is identifying that it’s time to make a change. Below, seven career and business coaches from Forbes Coaches Council share some key signs that indicate when it’s time to move on.
