Share it

The decision to leave your job requires a lot of thought. Although challenges at work are to be expected, experiencing long-term dissatisfaction is not.

If you consistently are unhappy at work, it may be time to change employers. This is especially true if you lack work-life balance or opportunities for growth. You should be able to follow your passion and have access to opportunities for career advancement.

The following are three signs you should look for a new job today and how Mercer Bradley can help.

You Need Better Work-Life Balance

Working an excessive number of hours each week impacts your well-being. Although occasional overtime may be required, it should not happen every week.

  • Not having adequate time to disengage results in decreased engagement, productivity, and work quality.
  • You cannot perform your best when you are expected to consistently work more than 40 hours per week.
  • You must be able to set boundaries or create more realistic expectations with your manager to succeed.

 “Angela was able to get me placed in a job that suited my needs. I’m incredibly happy & grateful to Angela for helping me through a very rough period.”


You Lack Opportunities for Growth

Your ability to advance within the organization is important. Your manager should prioritize your career advancement. There are many ways this can take shape:

  • Promotions
  • Working on new projects
  • Learning a new branch of the business
  • Being mentored by a senior leader
  • Taking on mid-level leadership positions

“I had a great experience with Angela throughout the whole recruitment process. The experience exceeded my expectations. Angela was able to find me a job that aligned with my long-term career goals. Without Angela’s help, I wouldn’t be working in my desired industry. I’m incredibly grateful & thankful to Angela for all her support.”


You Want More Appealing Opportunities

You may gain access to a range of career development options with another company. In addition to a positive work environment and supportive colleagues, you might benefit from the following:

  • Higher salaries
  • Broader career development
  • Wider professional network
  • Increased career fulfillment

“Angela was kind, courteous, and very knowledgeable. I felt like she had my best interests in mind throughout the entire interview process. I have already passed on Angela’s name to a number of friends if they are ever interested in seeking new opportunities.”
