When Is It Time To Move To A New Job?

I have been thinking about this a lot and even though we can read some stuff on turnover intentions and why people decide to leave their jobs, I didn’t find out much advise on the ‘right’ timing to leave the organisation you work for and embrace the culture and mission of a new one.

The reason I have been thinking about this is exactly because I’m going through this decision right now: should I aim to stay in the same organisation or is it time for me to leave? On my desk lies a job application for the same organisation I’m working in at the moment, and three others for new places and new (exciting) roles.

Nothing extreme happened to make me want to do a move but the truth is that sometimes nothing needs to happen in the concrete to let you know that it is the right time to venture out. Here are some psychological reasons that have been pushing me towards the decision of making a new step in my career, outside my current organisation:

  • I’m not learning anything new anymore
  • People I work with are not the kind of people that inspire me to do more and better
  • My proposals to create and work on the relationship with external partners are often dismissed

What makes you look for a new workplace? When do you know that the right time to change has come? Do you prioritise your learning and career development needs?
