What are the signs you should move jobs? | Invoke Recruitment


Making a job change can be an exciting time - but it can also be daunting.


If you're feeling stuck in a rut, then making a change can be the best thing for your career. Here are five signs that it might be time to move on to a new job:


1. You feel like you have stopped growing in your role


If you feel like you're stuck in a rut and not moving forward, it might be time for a change. A new job can offer you the chance to learn new skills and develop in your career, helping you to grow both personally and professionally. If you're not being challenged in your current role, moving to a new job might be the best way to continue growing.


2. You feel undervalued and unappreciated


If you're feeling unappreciated or undervalued, it can be tough to stay motivated at work. It's important to feel valued in your job - after all, we spend a lot of our time at work! If you don't feel like your hard work is being appreciated, it might be time to move on.


3. Your values aren't in sync with your employer any longer


It's hard to feel good about going to work when you don't believe in what your company is doing. If you don't share the same values as your employer, it's likely, you won't be happy in your job for very long. Moving to a new company that shares your values can help you to feel more fulfilled in your work.


4. Your career goals have changed


We all have different ambitions and goals throughout our careers. What may have been important to you when you started out may not be now. Perhaps you've realized that what you want is a leadership role - but your current company can't offer that to you or maybe you're looking to become a specialist rather than a generalist. If your career goals have changed, you need to look for a job that will help you to achieve those goals.


5. Your company has stopped innovating and investing in you


Martech has changed the landscape in recent years and B2B marketers skills have pivoted massively as a result… but if your company hasn't kept up, it might be time to move on. Will your skills be relevant in the next 2-3 years if you stay?


If you feel like you're stuck in a rut and not moving forward, it might be time for a change. A new job can offer you the chance to learn new skills and develop in your career, helping you to grow both personally and professionally.


If you feel unsure about what direction to take next in your career, it might be helpful to get some advice from a niche recruiter or career coach.
