Is it time to find a new job? How do you know? There are plenty of warning signs to give you the hints to make a change in your career. Before you jump the gun, though, you may want to take a closer look and make sure you’re not making a bad decision.
The decision-making process will be critical. You don’t want to act too face and eliminate your chances of improvement. And you don’t want to act too late and find yourself in an adversarial position, or worse.
Here are some of the things you would consider if you think you’re ready to look for a new job.
Are You Generally Dissatisfied?
Dissatisfaction comes in many forms. Are you bored? Do you hate Mondays? Are you constantly battling your supervisor or coworkers? If you don’t feel like you can give 100% to your job, it might be time to find another one. A new job can give you a better environment to perform and succeed.
Is There No Room for Advancement?
Have you run out of rungs on the ladder in your current job? If there is no room for growth, and you crave advancement, your current job won’t be able to fill that role for you. Look for shipyards that offer additional training and opportunities for your future.
Can You Get a Better Offer?
Have you gotten a call from a recruiter specializing in shipyard placements? Is the new job better than the one you have? If so, now may be the right time to jump ship, no pun intended. But be careful not to make a snap decision that could lead to bigger problems. Weigh the options carefully.
Did You Find Your Dream Job?
You may also be looking on your own. If that’s the case, did you find something that is your perfect job? If you apply and it becomes apparent that you’re the best fit for the role, you would do your career a disservice not to take it. Never pass up on your dream opportunity.
