We all spend the majority of our waking time at work; therefore it is important that we enjoy what we do. Information from a leading news website shows that only 48% of British people would describe themselves as fulfilled at work and two thirds of people have had a job that they have loved at some point. Even though it is unlikely that a job will be 100% perfect, there are a number of signs that it may be time for a significant amount of people to consider a career change and seek a more rewarding position. If you feel that any of the following factors are applicable to you, Intro Personnel would like to hear from you. We have a number of vacancies in Stoke on Trent, Newcastle under Lyme and Staffordshire that may be of interest to you.
It is important to first establish why you are dissatisfied, and if the reasons are temporary or long term issues. Will a different role change the way that you feel or does the problem lie within you? Below are a few points that may indicate whether or not it is time to start exploring new positions.
Are you feeling satisfied and happy for at least 80% of the time (80:20 rule as quoted by MSN) that you are at work? If the balance shifts and you find that the time that you spend dissatisfied and unhappy outweighs the good, this may be an indication that it is time to seek a new role.
One of our considerations when we choose a position is income. This can also be a factor that affects your happiness at work. If you haven’t had a salary rise for some time, it may be time to speak to your employer about this, and if they are not receptive to this then it may be time to seek something more rewarding.
If you are more focussed on job satisfaction and stimulation, think about the last time you learned something new in your role and how often you feel unchallenged. If this is a regular occurrence and you find yourself bored by the same tedious tasks day after day it may be time to look around for a new role!
When talking about your position socially outside of work, how often do you find that the conversation topic is negative? If you have more negative things to say than positive about the role that you are in then it may be a good idea to look for something that will provide you with more satisfaction.
