Is Your Career at a Standstill? Consider This Evaluation to Find Out If It’s Time for a New Job!

You’ve been in your current job for quite a while now, and to be honest, you’re starting to feel like you’re at a dead end. On the surface, the job isn’t terrible, which has made it hard for you to know what to do. However, you’re starting to think it might be time to move on.

The best Lehigh Valley employment agencies work with candidates in your position all the time. Recruiters know it can be hard to leave a job when the choice to do so isn’t blatantly obvious. If you’re having trouble deciding what steps to take, use this evaluation to help you figure things out.

Four Signs It’s Time for a New Job

You Dread Mondays

Not wanting to leave the weekend behind is an extremely common problem most everyone faces. However, there’s a difference between craving another day to relax and not wanting to go to a job you’re unhappy in. If you frequently have a case of the Sunday night blues, take some time to explore the root cause. The answer will be telling.

You’re Bored Most of the Day

Most jobs are not exciting every second of every day. With that said, the responsibilities associated with your role should engage you most of the time. If being bored at work has become your normal — either because you’re not interested in the work or it’s so easy you’re speeding through assignments — it’s time to search for new opportunities you’re passionate about.

You No Longer Feel Like You’re Making an Impact

Making a difference was one of the things you used to enjoy most about your job. However, it hasn’t really seemed like your efforts have mattered much lately. Something changed and it has caused you to feel less fulfilled. It’s hard to stay motivated when you feel like your work has no purpose, so this is likely an indication you need a change.

You’re Not Learning Anything New

There’s a certain comfort level that comes with being in a job for a while. This feels nice, but it’s also important to be in a role where you’re constantly challenged. If you’re no longer learning and growing, you’re not doing yourself any favors. This can cause your skills to become obsolete, which will make it harder to find a job you really want down the road — if you wait to do so.

As a staffing and recruitment professional for over  30 years, I have seen many changes in the industry. Over that time, I’ve witnessed a transformation in the way organizations view staffing services. Today, we see more and more companies using staffing services as a strategic tool, rather than just for temporary fill-ins.

At HTSS, Inc., our focus is on helping companies create proactive workforce plans. Our goal is to help our clients use staffing strategically to increase capacity, overcome hiring freezes, access specialized talent, better manage increased workloads, and enhance overall productivity.

For our candidates, we help to uncover truly rewarding job opportunities—jobs that are a match to each candidate’s skills, and jobs that offer key experience and growth potential.

We look forward to strengthening our relationships with our current clients and candidates, as well as forming new and exciting partnerships in the future.
