5 Ways to Know It’s Time to Quit Your Job

Bad days on the job are completely normal, and can happen somewhat regularly. But don’t confuse a bad day with a bad job. That being said, however, there comes a point where enough is enough; if you’re having one too many bad days per month, it may be a sign that it is time to move on to something new.

Here are 5 sure-fire ways to know it is time to quit your job:

  1. You just can’t focus on the tasks at hand. Again, having an off day where you find it difficult to focus is nothing strange. Not being able to focus on a daily basis because you simply don’t feel motivated, challenged, or something similar, may be the sign you have been looking for.
  2. You find yourself talking about nothing but your job. To add to this, you have nothing nice to say about it, either. If coming up with at least 5 things you like or love about your job is unimaginable, it is time to move on.
  3. You have hit a head end and there is no more room for advancement within the company you currently work for.
  4. You frequently complain about your job and find yourself in a constant bad mood, yet still come up with reasons to justify staying. The hours may be perfect for your lifestyle, but is that worth that negativity?
  5. You’re overqualified. Sometimes we stay at a job simply because of comfort, but if you have outgrown it and qualify for a higher paying job elsewhere, it may be time to see what else is out there.

Now that you’ve got the knowledge, it’s time to find your next job! Head to gumtree.co.za or your Gumtree app (click for Apple & Android).
