Everyone, at some point, will wonder if they should change jobs. It’s a normal feeling, whether you’re thinking about pay, opportunity or just doing something new.
If you’re a younger worker, you’re more like to actually change jobs than if you are an older worker well-established in your career.
Regardless of age, here are seven key things to consider before making that leap:
Why do you want a change?
Knowing why you’re not finding fulfillment in your current position and what things you’re looking for in a new one will help you get started in the process of switching jobs. Is it because you’re not being challenged? Are you seeking more money? Is it a bad work environment? Are there changes in the company, like mergers or financial issues, that you want to avoid?
Whatever your reason, knowing why you’re looking to leave will help you avoid the same thing in a new position.
