Should I quit my job?

There are many different reasons that people leave jobs, and before starting to look for a new position it is vitally important that you weigh up your options and make sure that it is the right decision for you.

If you are experiencing these notions in your current role have a think about your options as it may be time to move on.

You dread Monday morning…

Now I’m not saying that you should be jumping out of bed on a Monday morning ecstatic at the prospect of getting to the office, but at the same time there is genuinely no worse feeling than going to bed on Sunday dreading the prospect of getting up for work in the morning.

Your days drag…

Being busy and feeling fulfilled at work are intrinsically linked and if you are in the situation where you are counting down every second then it could be an indication that you need to consider your options.

You are not progressing…

Progression for everyone comes in different forms, whilst for some progression is purely financial, for others it comes in the form of job title or level of responsibility. Whatever progression means for you, if you do not feel like you are progressing in your current role it is almost certainly time to consider new opportunities.

You are over stressed…

You might love your job and you might feel really loyal to a company, but if you spend all of your time stressed and have no work-life balance you’re eventually going to burn out. If you are super stressed and not feeling like you are able to cope this is not a situation that you should be in. Try and speak to your manager initially, but if this does not get resolved and you genuinely cannot see it being resolved then this is a strong reason to look to leave.

You hate who you work with…

I am not expecting that you would be best friends with every person that you work with however it is important that you get along and have an element of respect for those that you work with and for. During the working week you likely spend more time with your colleagues than you do with your family, so it is vital that you can at least tolerate their company.

Quitting your job is a massive decision and not one to be made lightly. If you are feeling unhappy where possible speak to your manager to see if there is anything that can be done to change your frustration.
