How to Make a Career Change
When is it the right time tochange jobs?
There are a lot of things to consider when deciding whenand why to move on. To begin with, you need to assesswhere you are now, what you have achieved and where you want to be in a few years time.
What do you enjoy about your present job? What don’t you enjoy?What do you feel is missing? What have you enjoyed about anyprevious roles you have done? How will you know when you haveachieved it?As well as your own personal motives for wanting to change jobs,there are plenty of other reasons out of your control that cause youto leave your current position, including:
potential financial difficulties for your employer 
your company moving into a different area of business
a collapse in communication with your manager or colleagues
Spotting when the time is right
 If you do decide to leave a job, quitting at the wrong time can hit youin the pocket if you’re not careful. For example, leaving just beforeyour big bonus is due is not very sensible.It’s a good idea to think about whether you’re currently paid inadvance or in arrears as any change may affect your monthly cashflow.
 
If you’ve got a holiday planned, wait until you get back beforehanding in your notice. Your new employer won’t take kindly to youbooking two weeks off during your probation period.
Leave in a position of strength
Once you’ve made the decision to leave, make sure you havesomewhere to go before handing in your notice. Don’t be tempted tostorm off in a huff or make some sort of statement if it means leavingyourself vulnerable.It’s much easier to find a job when you already have one. A longperiod of unemployment sends out a bad signal to a future employer.Don’t ignore the consequences of quitting before you have a new joblined up, no matter how much you dislike where you’re working.Apart from looking bad as you start applying for new jobs, voluntarilyleaving your former role could compromise your eligibility for unemployment benefits.
Money shouldn’t be the only reason
 If money is the overriding issue in your desire for change, have thecourage to address it before thinking about leaving. If you don’t feelyou’re getting paid enough, ask for more. This can be a scaryexperience, but it could solve your problem.
