What Can Be a Smart Job Change?


Stability in jobs is no more seen anywhere around and is now a thing of the past. Nowadays, with companies, both big and small coming up like grocery stores, people are able to find too many job options. This encourages them to frequently leave their current job and get into another. Also that, the organizations, for faster growth, indulge into trimming and restructuring of their work which further gives a great boost to such job switching practices.

There was a time when our fathers and grandfathers used to spend all their lifetimes remaining in one job. Then, the workers were more loyal to their employees and it was good for both. But now, employees keep looking all around to pick up the pettiest issue and hop to another job in another company. There again, they do not remain satisfied and the process of hopping continues with them finding satisfaction now.

Once they hop because salary is not good, then they hop for people are not good, then again they hop for the job has too much pressure, etc. etc. and it continues. Particularly, this is the most common thing among the people between the age group of 25 and 35 or 40 because after that they mostly get tired. Further, many employers look too much toward the hoppers as seekers of quick growth. And those working in the same job are seen as the failures with no desire to rise.

Still, there also are recruiters who hate this practice and would kick you for that. So you bought to be careful before making your next switch for you may be called an afraid person lacking stability. It sure harms your progress and future career prospects. Of course, you can change but check out for significant reasons proving it to be an appropriate step.

Knowing any job is exceptionally always always risky as every job, other than the one you are currently into appears better and easier. As the saying goes – "Grass is always greener on the other side of the fence".

Reasons like "people are not good" or "it is too far" or "salary is little less" are too small for you leaving a job. Change your organization only for strong reasons –

  • Great salary hike: If your hike in salary is not small, and is something more than 'an OK', then the switch would be nice for you. It would be considered as a smart move.
    * Raise in job responsibilities: Even if your responsibilities rise though your salary remains the same, it is a strong enough reason for you changing the job.
    * Better design: Again, if you are getting a better design in your new organization there is nothing bad if you change. A new title along with something new to do is liked by everyone. Moreover, it is sure to enhance your future career options.
    * Change to some better city / country: Lastly, a reason that your new job would be in a new city or country, other features remaining the same would certainly be great for you.

Whatever be your reasons for leaving the current job and joining a new one, it is important that it must not be something silly. And reasons other than the above few will not prove good in the long run. Anybody thinking from the career point of view would always try to make his or her switch as a smart move helping the person to grow in his or her respect career. After all, everyone wants to have a remarkable career . What are you about to do?
