My boss is a jerk, he thinks I am a tool and doesn’t appreciate me!
Let’s hope that is not the case, but if you are wanting to leave your current company and are looking to make a change, why? What are the reasons to move on to a new role that should not leave you feeling like you are abandoning your team, manager or even company.
When it’s time to change, then its time to change
Don’t fight the tide, come along for the ride, don’t you see
When it’s time to change, you’ve got to rearrange
who you are into what you’re gonna be….
Peter Brady and the other kids were on to something. Change is good, and it fosters growth, but be sure you are leaving for the right reason, and don’t get stuck in the same situation in different cubicle!
Make sure you find a good recruiter, someone that will take the time to get to know you and your needs and what you are looking for in a career. There are many agencies that can help you find a job, fewer that can help you with your career, and even less that will not treat you like a “One and Done”.
For sure the best reason to give for quitting a job is that you’ve found a new one, one that will allow you to take on new challenges and expand your career, and maybe put a little more cash in your pocket. Remember when you tell your boss you are leaving, be aware of the counter offer, or as I have called it Career Suicide.
Other factors that might contribute to you wanting to make a change could be: you feel you are under paid, your co-workers or managers are difficult to work with, un-flexible hours, or lack of training. Maybe you are on a contract and found fulltime work, or maybe you are relocating. These are all great reasons to change, just remember to communicate to your recruiter, and when you decide to resign, do it quickly and don’t consider a counter offer.
Change is good folks!
Have a great Friday!
