Time for a job change

Sooner or later we all reach a point where we think about our professional situation and ask ourselves whether the current job is (still) the right one. A job change is quite normal nowadays, hardly any employee stays with one and the same employer for decades. So when is the time ripe for a new job?

How often do you think about changing jobs?

As soon as you seriously question your current job for the first time, take the time to reflect on your situation. Is your dissatisfaction a punctual phenomenon or a chronic condition? consider the current situation and your personal wishes for further professional development by asking the following questions:

  • How long have you been working in this position?
  • Was the job your own active choice or did you slip into the job by chance or for economic reasons?
  • Do you enjoy the working environment, the team and the company's culture?
  • Are you satisfied at the end of a work day?
  • Do you feel realized and fulfilled by your current job?

Using these and similar questions as a guide - if you find negative answers to most questions and find that you have always wanted something different for your professional life, you should prepare yourself to change your job.

What do you want?

Even if you have found out that your current job is not what you desire, it may not be a good idea to just jump ship. Find out what you want first.

  • Is there a possibility for development in your current company, which will meet your desires?
  • In which direction would you want to develop?
  • Is a job change enough or do you want to change fields or industries?
  • Which companies would be interesting new employers?

Once you have figured out some of these details you can start your search.
