Tell-tale Symptoms That Tell You It's Time To Look For Another Job
By Ver Cruz
At some point in our lives comes a boss who just causes us to grind our teeth and make a solemn vow to leave for good the next day. Now there are times when it best for you to stay awhile or pack up and leave.
Is it easy to spot these signs? Yes, it is, but some things must be noted.
This is not something to be taken frivolously. Remember, you can't go wrong with getting a replacement job before you leave your current one. It may take you anywhere from one to six months to find a better and more suitable job, and you don't want to deplete your finances during your bumhood days. So if you want a seamless transition in your jobs, and at the same time maintain your vital finances and standard of living, secure a replacement job first.
Also, if you are still gainfully employed during your job search, you will be in an enhanced bargaining position for your new job.
Your next employer will think you are valuable since you are still currently employed. If you are currently employed, state that you are a productive and useful employee with skills and attributes valuable to their organization.
Be prepared to bargain and get paid well, not only financially but also with other basic rewards and payments, to entice you away from your current employer. Perhaps a higher position, a promotion, your own office, or marked parking spot.
