“I’m over it.”
I’ve spewed these words more than once at many of my jobs. Sometimes it was because of a bad day, other times a bad week. But I didn’t take my rants seriously until they became more frequent. My workload didn’t change, my co-workers were the exact same as when I first started, and management was still…trifling management. But somehow, I knew in my heart that after constantly thinking “I was over it,” despite my self-motivating quotes, it was time to leave.
So how do you know when it’s really time to pursue another job? While everyone is different and we choose to remain in our careers for different reasons, here are a few ways to tell that it might be time to ‘dip out’ and move on.
