15 Signs it May be Time to Leave Your Job

 

Like any job, there are positives and negatives. Good days and bad days. Some days you might ask yourself, “I wonder if I should start looking for another job?”, but other days you tell yourself, “No, I think I’ll stay put.” If this describes you, and you’re constantly going back and forth with what to do, here are 15 signs it may be time to move on:

  1. You dread going to work
  2. When you come home from work you’re irritable more often than not
  3. You have trouble falling asleep or wake up in the middle of the night thinking of work
  4. Your job is making you feel down and somewhat depressed
  5. You dread Sunday nights and the thought of going to work on Monday
  6. You have no energy during the work week
  7. You live for the weekend
  8. Your employer or company doesn’t have the same values as you
  9. You don’t find fulfillment in your job anymore
  10. You have tried to grow in your career, but your job (or your manager) is not letting you
  11. You contributions are not valued
  12. Your colleagues or others at work are rude to you
  13. The work environment is very negative and/or toxic
  14. There have been several layoffs and/or turnover is high
  15. You have a gut feeling something may be happening to your job

If you’ve checked off several of these signs, and you’ve even tried to remedy some of the situations, then it may be time to dust off your resume and move on. Change is always scary, but there comes a time when you need to look out for your well-being and for the future of your career.
