time to quit your job

Whether you’ve been at your job for a month or several years, there comes a time when you realize it’s just not working for you. If you can’t remember the last time you’ve had a good day at work, it might be time to seriously consider quitting. If you need more clarity we’re here to help you. Here are 4 clear signs it’s time to quit.

The work environment is unhealthy

Working in an unhealthy office can have negative effects on your mental health and is definitely a clear sign that you should quit that job. A toxic work environment is more than just a job you “hate”. It can range from difficult colleagues to abusive bosses and so much more. If you find yourself in an environment like this, it’s time for you to start looking for a new job.

You really don’t like going to work.

We’ve all had those days when we just can’t seem to get up and get to work. Though this is nothing out of the ordinary, if you find yourself constantly finding it difficult to get to work it might be a sign that you just don’t like your job. In such cases, it is perfectly normal to start thinking about finding a new job that would better align with your passions.

There are no opportunities for growth

Without the possibility to grow at your job, you might feel stuck or stagnant especially, if you just keep doing the same duties over and over again. Growth does not necessarily have to be in terms of promotion. It can be in the form of a new project or being given a little bit more responsibility. If your job is not challenging you in exciting ways and promoting your growth you should start considering giving your quit notice.

You’re underpaid

No one likes to be underpaid. Though you might have accepted to be paid a low salary because you were promised a raise after a certain period or you were desperate. Whatever the reason, if you are under-compensated at your job, you should consider leaving (especially if you have mentioned a raise a couple of times). Staying at a job that under compensates you can lead to frustration or resentment.

If you can relate to at least 2 reasons out of the above then I seriously suggest you start searching for a new job. Might be the best thing for you!
