As we welcome in another year, many see the New Year as a good time for a fresh start. This often includes considering the decision to leave their current role and finding a new, exciting opportunity. But, how do you make sure that your next job is the right move for both your career, and your personal life?
Work out why you want to leave
If you’ve decided it’s time to look for a new role, make sure that you won’t just end up in the same situation again in your new role. Take time to analyse what it is you don’t enjoy about your current role; is it the team you’re working with? Or could it be the location of where you work? Once you have worked out the main reasons for wanting to leave, you can use our website to tailor your search and avoid those jobs that don’t tick the right boxes.
What elements would make your dream job?
Identify the factors that would make you most happy in a new role, this will be a huge help when trying to work out whether a vacancy you’re considering has everything you require. We’re not saying that you should dismiss a potential role if it doesn’t meet your dream job requirements, however, it will make it easier to demonstrate whether the role is close to what you’re looking for. It is common for people desperate to leave their current situation to leap straight in to another role where they will face the same problems.
