How To Know WHEN To Change Jobs

– 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 skillsets. 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 lemme 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 skillsets, 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. Okay, so if you wanna land a new job, then I highly encourage you to check out the Work

  1. I have a chemical engineering and have extensive experience in customer support and accounts but I still get interviews for stupid basic entry level admin/finance jobs, just had one today what a waste of time , I am planning to re train in software development, am i doing the right thing

  2. Great How to video, I am also creating how to video about make money off the stock market and teaching about how to trade stock and your video gave me a idea, thank you 🙂

  3. I have wanted to find a new job , and leave the toxic culture where I work. Seems harder as I get older because I’m getting the feeling people would rather pay someone younger. Have you done a video for people seeking a new career when they’re over 40? Thanks

  4. i did a good job leaving my job. I used to work in a chinese company and last two months I just give them whatever I could but when it's their turn like training on other professional skills or learn something from them, they always show language barrier. I paused a second and ask myself where is my development, where I am growing? so I finally quit !

  5. my income is that good that no other company is willing to give me not even a near salary, but I am "dying" in skills. I feel like the work environment is pulling me back, after I boosted our job and over performed the goals.

    so my question is, how to find an appropriate employer without loosing the current "job position"?

  6. Great How to video !
    youre definitely giving me some ideas about what i should do next on my channel!!!

  7. Is it appropriate to have your physical address on resume?
    I have been applying for positions for years…not sure what the problem is.
