-Youíve simply outgrown your position: * Maybe you started at a low level position and have been passed over for promotions even though youíre qualified * Youíre not being challenged enough
If you started out at bottom of ranks, and now youíre at top, you shouldnít be getting paid bottom salary. Start looking for a job thatís right for your current level of expertise.
-Job stress is affecting your everyday life * You have chronic headaches or backaches * You have developed an anxiety, sleep or other disorder as a result of your job stress
The bottom line is work is stressful. There might even be some weeks where itís stressful everyday. But if weeks turn into months or longer, you might want to start looking for something that fits your life better. Whether itís actual work you do, way your office is run, or way your boss treats you, you should be able to look back and have some positive memories of your job. If youíre constantly stressing about your job when youíre not at work, it might be time to work somewhere else.
