How to Tell It’s Time to Finally Find a New Job

It’s been a long time since you actually wanted to go to work. However, this hasn’t always been the case. You used to be passionate about your job and truly enjoyed most everything about it. For a while, you thought you’d just hit a rough patch, but you’ve given it some time and nothing has changed. 

You’re an amazing behavioral health professional with so much to give to both your patients and employer, so it doesn’t make sense to stay in a job that doesn’t feel right. Here are a few red flags that indicate your current job is no longer a good fit. If any sound familiar, take this as your cue to move on. 

Signs its Time to Find a New Job

You Don’t Feel Challenged 

As an ambitious professional, you enjoy pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. Learning, growing, and achieving lofty goals is kind of your thing, but you haven’t had the opportunity to do that in quite some time. It’s very possible you’ve simply outgrown your job, and if this is the case, it’s time to start the next chapter. 

There’s No Room to Grow 

You feel like you’ve mastered your current job, and you’ve been treading water for awhile, waiting for the next step. While you’d like to stay with your employer, you honestly can’t see growth happening unless you leave. Whether the job you’d like to move into is already filled or there simply isn’t anywhere to advance that makes sense for your career, know when it’s time to move on.

Your Voice Isn’t Heard 

You’re a talented behavioral health professional with so much to offer. If you feel like you’re unable to make the kind of impact you’d like, because your employer doesn’t give you a voice, you’re probably frustrated all the time  and rightfully so. Plenty of employers would welcome your ideas, so it’s time to find a new job where you’ll be truly appreciated. 

There’s No Work-Life Balance 

All work and no play is no way to live. You’re a hard worker, but you also want to enjoy a full personal life. You don’t mind occasional overtime, but if it has become the standard, you’re likely feeling burned out and missing a lot of time with loved ones. Plenty of jobs offer a solid work-life balance, so give yourself a break and start searching for one. 

You Don’t Want to Go to Work 

If you rarely  or never  want to go to work, it’s hard to deny you need a new job. You spend a significant portion of your life at work, so it’s important have a job you enjoy. Everyone has bad days at work, but if your good ones are few and far between, you owe it to yourself to find a new job that truly excites you.
