17 Signs You Need a Career Change




Imagine waking up before your alarm in the morning, excited about the day ahead – and it’s a MONDAY!

Imagine happily planning your to-do list on your way to work, walking in with a smile and saying 'Good Morning' to your team (and actually meaning it, too).

Imagine saying “It’s 5 o’clock already?!”, or planning your next six to 12 months feeling like there are endless opportunities waiting for you.

Imagine a life-long career you love, where the minor hiccups are outweighed by the joy you get from your day-to-day.

Can’t see yourself there? You almost certainly need to think about changing jobs. The warning signs are there – how many can you tick off?
