3 Ways to tell if you need a career change

September 16, 2016 / Sharnie Carter

Millions of us are stuck in the wrong job and are just ‘putting up with it’. But why waste the majority of your life in a career that you don’t enjoy? It’s time to get out of that employment rut and do something about it! Here are 3 ways to tell if you need a career change:

Loss of passion

Do you dread going to work every morning? Are you bored of the same routine? Do you go to work just for the benefits? Or is it for the purpose of your job? If you have answered yes to all of these except the last it’s definitely the time for a career change.  We spend more than half of our lives at work so don’t waste it on a job you don’t enjoy. It’s never too late for a new career!

Lack of Growth

If you struggle to find out how you have professionally grown in your current position it’s time to make a big decision. Ask yourself what you have learnt whilst being there and where you see yourself in the next 5 years – make sure it’s realistic!

Lack of excitement

Do you dread Sunday nights? And get to work on Monday morning and wishing it was Friday already? Then it sounds like you are bored of your current career and need a change.  Although it is normal for us to look forward to the weekend (who doesn’t!) but you should also like going to work if it is something you’re interested in and enjoy.
