Have you ever wondered why would someone in a “fantastic career” suddenly start considering a career change?
Well, you are not alone!
Ijeoma Nkwonta, GPHR, an experienced Recruiter and Career Transition Coach shares five (5) top reasons, on the basis of her experience with her coaching why exceptional employees in a fantastic career would suddenly desire a change.
Why Fantastic Career people consider a career change
📍Exposure – Search for new and more challenging perspectives in the world of work/business.
📍Boredom – People doing exactly the same thing day in day out for years, and the work which once excited them has become boring. Ouch!
📍Searching for opportunities with more business relevance and or impact – The kind of appreciation given to some roles or the kind of impact and relevance some roles demand, make people consider moving to such fields.. after all, everyone wants their job to be considered relevant.
📍Peace of mind – Now this usually depends on the leaders and the culture of the business one works with. Severe stress can make someone lose interest in a job they once loved!
📍Need for more money to meet obligations – If you don’t get this point, forget about it. 😆
If you notice the trend in these points shared, #people are simply constantly self-reflecting and asking: 𝐀𝐦 𝐈 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐛𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐲 𝐪𝐮𝐨𝐭𝐚 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐦𝐲 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤?
If talents start doubting internally the impact of their work, or how appreciated they are, that’s when they start considering a career change! I believe that’s simple to understand.
