Watching the clock tick minute by minute while at work is a sign it may be time to re-evaluate your career and face up to how you really feel about your job.
Like athletes, professionals who have been in the same routine for a long period of time are likely to hit a plateau. Their motivation will drop and enthusiasm often becomes overshadowed by the monotonous day-to-day tasks.
If this sounds like you, you’re probably in need of either a long holiday, or a career change.
Benefits of changing directions
Changing your career sounds like a daunting process but that could be because your way of thinking is stuck in the past. Unlike the old days, it’s not the norm to stay with one company for 10-15 years.
In fact, Michael Page believes changing jobs (obviously, not too often) will enhance your experience and broaden your knowledge and skills.
Taking the first step towards a new career
With Ireland’s economy still recovering, the only way to land your dream job is by being proactive, showing enthusiasm and persistence.
Networking is vital to meeting new people who could lead to potential work. We all know the world talks, and spreading the word that you’re looking for a new role may end up in the ear of an employer.
Inspiration will also give you confidence when deciding to change career paths, so rubbing shoulders with people who are happy and successful will motivate you to make the move.
