Do you enjoy your current job? The majority of workers in the U.S. would probably answer “no,” but in reality, there is no need to stay in a position you hate. Contrary to popular belief, if you are stuck in a position you dislike, it can be beneficial to both you and your employer if you change jobs, especially since studies show unhappy workers are less productive. You may want to contemplate switching careers if you notice the following signs:

Your Body Tells You

Everyone gets the “Sunday night dread” from time to time, and after a weekend of rest and recreation, very few people are excited to return to work on Monday. However, if your Sunday night dread carries over into the other nights of the workweek you may want to consider switching careers. The body often gives workers signs it is time for a change, and if you experience any of the following symptoms, you may be headed towards burnout:

  • Low-grade anxiety and depression
  • Irritation
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Loss of interest in job and coworkers

Listen to your body carefully, and if it displays any of the symptoms above regularly, you may want to think about making a change.

Only Showing Up for a Paycheck

Many people say you know you love your job when you would do it for free. Realistically, you need money to pay your bills, but your career shouldn’t only be about your monthly or weekly paycheck. Ideally, you should derive some pleasure from doing your job, and if you find yourself only showing up for the money, it may be time to change careers.

Dreams of a Different Career

Are you dreaming of a new career? This may sound a bit self-explanatory, but by answering this question, you can better understand how you feel about your current job. If you can genuinely see yourself in a new role, you may want to take the necessary steps to obtain it. Changing careers isn’t easy, but if you are having thoughts about finding a new job, it may be time to make the jump.
