I think it’s crucial to give yourself a regular job or career health check.

We currently live in a world where there are so many great job opportunities out there, but when it comes to thinking about searching for a new role most people would rather book themselves in for root canal. However it doesn’t need to be as daunting as you think!

Throughout my years of recruiting, I’ve come across many reasons why people want to leave their job. The vast majority of reasons that are given are valid in order to receive job satisfaction.

I think it’s crucial to give yourself a job health check on a regular basis. If you don’t, you can find yourself falling into a rut and it could be too late to fix.

I think there are defining questions you need to ask yourself to make sure you are happy in your current role and that you’re being challenged.

These are just are few questions to ask yourself:
  •  Are you working for a company with values you believe in?
  •  Are you being valued for the work that you’re doing in your current role?
  •  Does your management team mentor you and promote you to be the best version of yourself?
  •  Is there enough diversity in your role?
  •  Are there internal growth and training opportunities?
  •  Is your mental health being affected for better or for worse?
  •  Are you consistently learning new things?
  •  Is your remuneration consistent with the current market?
As much as we all think we have our work / life balance covered, we usually don’t. Of course, some of the answers to the questions above may change depending on the phase of life you are in, but considering we are working longer hours and some of you are eating lunch at your desk. You need to make sure your current role is offering you what you want in order to feel challenged, thought provoked, progressive and modern. There’s nothing worse than feeling that you have ignored your job health check and waking up years later in the same old stale role that does not longer offers you a new breath of life or the level of stimulation you desire. If you can pull out your metaphorical stethoscope and give yourself a job health check, it will be the key to always keeping yourself challenged with new tasks that will take you out of your comfort zone, make you do a better job of the one you’re in or push you to look for one that does. Your job health check will thank you with invigoration, perspective and the skill set to stay up to date.  " ["post_title"]=> string(21) "Your Job Health Check" ["post_excerpt"]=> string(168) "I think it’s crucial to give yourself a job health check on a regular basis.
