5 Reasons to Leave Your Current Job


Do you see yourself in your current position in 5 years?

What factors did you consider in making this determination?

One of the reasons that my clients contact me is because they are unsure whether they want to stay in their current position or begin a job search. Some know that they have outgrown their present job but lack the confidence to go after the position that they really want. 

“Job-hopping” doesn’t carry the same stigma that it did 10 years ago. Few employers expect you to stay with them for decades.  In fact, 3-5 years in a role without a promotion or significant contributions is now viewed unfavorably. Here are 5 reasons to remain at your current job:

  1. Fairly and adequately compensated for your work
  2. Passion and enjoyment for the work
  3. Opportunities to learn and contribute
  4. Recognized and appreciated for your work
  5. Encouraging and supportive supervisor and colleagues

Fear and uncertainty can cloud judgment. As a result, many well-educated, experienced, hard-working  professional women are underemployed. When considering your career path, understand that your job should be as good a fit for you as you are for it. Here are 5 reasons to leave your job:

  1. Compensation doesn’t allow you to maintain your desired lifestyle
  2. Demotivated or bored with the work
  3. Lack of professional challenge and opportunities for development
  4. Lack of opportunities for growth and advancement
  5. Difficult work environment where employees feel disrespected, unvalued, or silenced

There is inner work that is required in order to advance your career:

  1. Know your worth
  2. Seek work-life balance
  3. Honor your values
  4. Participate in continuing education/training
  5. Reevaluate your career goals
  • Do you have a 5 year career plan? 
  • Are you ready to create a 5 year career plan? 

Now is the perfect time to reevaluate your current job and industry.
