Did you know that we spend an average of 30 percent of our lives working? If you don’t want to waste any more hours in a job that’s not right for you, it may be time to make a change. Here are some surefire signs you should be looking for a new job.

You’re bored

It’s very uncommon to find a job that stimulates you all day, every day. However, if you find every day dull, it’s high time you started your job search. We spend far too much time at work to be bored. Find something that challenges you, intrigues and inspires you, and makes you think. You may not ever land your dream job, but it’s worth trying to find something that gives you that little bit of excitement.

You want to achieve more

Do you have plans to be a CEO or are desperate to be a leading specialist in your field? If you’re doing something that leaves you wanting more, start taking steps to reach your end goal. Ask your boss about training programs or look into further study. If you haven’t quite got the qualifications you need to take that next step, don’t let this put you off. Instead, investigate courses online and consider studying on the job. If you’ve got the ability or you want to gain the skills you need to go further, don’t wait any longer. There’s no point in wasting time if you know what you want to do, and how you’re going to make it happen.

There’s no job satisfaction

Do you feel envious when you hear people talking about how much their job means to them or what a difference they make to other people through their line of work? If your job leaves you feeling indifferent, and you’d like to do something that makes more of a positive impact, think about a change of career. Are you a sociable person who wants to spend more time around others? Do you want to travel and explore? Are you keen on doing charity work or are you an animal lover who would rather spend their time with cuddly creatures than human colleagues? If you don’t get any joy out of your current job, think about what you’d like to do, and start looking for vacancies.

You’re too comfortable

There’s a lot to be said for being comfortable at work, but if you become part of the furniture, you can get stuck in a rut. It’s reassuring to know what every day holds and to get on with everyone around you, but sometimes, change can do you the word of good. Stepping out of your comfort zone can be challenging, but it could also be the making of you.

Are you bored of staring at the clock at work? Do you wish you could do something more worthwhile or exciting with your time? Are you keen to take the next step or do you worry that you’ve got a little too comfortable where you are? If so, why not consider taking the plunge and looking for a new job?
