There could be many reasons why people switch their jobs. The main reason behind this is not always salary. The reasons why most people switch jobs could be different – getting married and moving; an unlikeable boss; dynamic goals and lack of inadequate motivation or vision. But these reasons are limited to interferences from personal life. There are also reasons that drive you to the decision of switching Jobs. Based on researchers, we have jotted down a few major reasons behind Job Switch
- You literally feel sick
If you experience chronic illness, debilitation, and exhaustion, the first place anyone would look is your work. Most of us spend more working hours working than doing anything else, and I can tell you from firsthand experience that if you don’t like your work, it won’t like you back, and overly-stressful as misaligned work can very easily make your body break down. Your body tells you what your lips cannot. It may be your specific job or toxic work environment that are breaking you down, but often it’s your entire career that needs a shift.
- You become “Over Qualified”
This can be a shocker for some folks that you might have become very good at work that you hate. Sometimes you work in a Job Position for so long that you know everything in that Job Role. You become so good at it that it’s not challenging anymore. At this time you either need a Promotion or new challenge. This keeps bothering you enough to start hating your job. Such situations starts bothering you and your confidence from within. If you feel such, it is recommended to either approach for a new Job Position within the same industry or just look for a new job which gives new challenges to your existing experience hence it polishes your skills to give more shine on your career. You have the irrepressible feeling that your talents and abilities could/should be used in a totally different (more creative and impactful) way.
- You’ve come to the point where your salary no longer makes up for the boredom and emptiness you feel.
Most people who dislike like their work but are reluctant to change would say it’s their fear about walking away from the money that keeps them stuck. There are people who earn much above average and they don’t want to part with it. But at some point, many state that, “Hang on – I have this money, but I hate how I spend my life making it.” Thus, they begin to rethink their priorities and abilities, which enlighten for the new ways where they can make the money they need without risking the farm or giving up their lives for it.
- Despite all the “right” choices you made in your career, the outcome feels very wrong.
Many professionals have made all the “right” choices, done everything that was expected of them, so when they wake up bored to death with their work, they’re shocked and confused. Things to realize here are that the “right” choices usually had to do with pleasing others, stroking your ego, or taking work and a promotion that fell in your lap, rather asking yourself the tough questions like “Is this where I belong?”
More people will be interested in companies that offer private medical services and other benefits where employee feels secure for future circumstances. Also, companies offering advanced programs of professional training or even private career coaching could gain an advantage over their competitors in the market.
However, remember : A great company culture will always beat any good benefits.
