Hi there, it's J.T., and today I'm going to explain how to know if it's time to find a new job.
By the end of this video, you're going to have a simple framework to help you determine if it's time to make a change in your career.
The strategy I'm about to share with you has helped thousands of our Work It Daily clients figure out if they should stay where they are or make a shift.
I'm gonna break this down into three easy steps.
We're gonna start with step one, which is understanding the "experience-plus-learn equals-grow" equation for success.
So the reality is, if you aren't growing in your job today, you're dying.
What I mean by that, is that the experiences that you have should be something that's building up your skill sets.
And it's really important that every few months, we take a step back.
We look at the work that we've done, and decide whether or not the experiences we had are helping us learn and grow into better professionals.
If you wanna learn more about the "experience plus learn equals grow" model, check out the video that we've got up here, which really goes into greater detail.
So let me give you an example.
Imagine you were assigned a really unhappy client at your company, and you worked very hard to turn the situation around.
And the good news is, is at the end of it, the client was giving rave reviews about their experience with you, and even renewed their contract with the company.
This is an example of an experience where you would step back, analyze the steps and methodology you took to turn the client around.
And then share with your manager how you were gonna use that methodology to help other clients.
This is a sign of professional growth.
If you have experiences like this in your current job, then you are some place with lots of opportunities to help you succeed.
You're growing, not dying.
So now I wanna hear from you.
In the comments below, tell me about a time where you were really able to learn and grow from an experience you had on the job.
So now that you have that understanding, it's time to move onto step two, which is analyzing and making sure the experiences you're having are helping you grow in three particular ways.
The best way to move forward in your career is to make sure that you're having experiences that let you learn and grow in three ways.
Via financial, influence, and skills.
So let me break that down for you.
So you want opportunities in an organization that will let you build up your income.
Opportunities to get raises for cost of living, or promotion.
If this is things that are important to you, then you have to make sure that this company is giving you the opportunities to do that.
The second one was influence, and by this, I mean power and control over your career.
The more influence you have in terms of the respect and the support from your peers and your managers, the better.
So these experiences where you have success is going to help you earn that trust and respect.
And the last one is the skills themselves.
Because the reality is, you have to stay relevant to your work.
Just like we gave in that previous example, as you're building up your skill sets, you're more valuable to an employer.
So if you feel like you're hitting a dead end in any of these areas, then it's time to make a change.
And let's talk about that in step number three.
So the last step in the process is to make the decision of whether or not to leave, and then stick with it.
Once you've done the first two steps, you know that you've hit roadblocks.
And if you have, you really only got two options here.
Option A is to sit down with your boss and have an honest conversation to see what you could do to get back on track.
Option B is to make the decision to leave.
And if you do do that, it's really important that you go all in and build a job search plan to execute on that.
Studies show that people who are mentally checked out on the job, but not proactively looking for new work can end up becoming underperformers.
And in worst-case scenarios, actually get fired for poor performance.
And I don't want that to happen to you.
So if you're looking for more tips on how to conduct a proactive job search, I really encourage you to check out our video up above.
It's a comprehensive understanding of what it takes to actually find work today.
And the reality is, job search has changed a lot in the last couple of years.
This video's gonna help you unlock the secrets to success with that.
In the end, it's up to you to make the decision as to whether or not to stay at this job.
It's your choice.
But hopefully, this framework that I've outlined will give you the ability to make an informed decision as to whether or not to stay or go.
