Certain things at work can tell you when it's time to either move ahead at your current job, or move on to another one. Here are three signs you should pay attention to:
- You’re bored - It might mean you're ready for more responsibility or a new role. And if your boss doesn't notice, it's okay to bring it up. If they can't do something to make your job more interesting, it may be time to look for opportunities elsewhere.
- Your boss has been talking you up, or responding to a lot of your ideas - It's a sign they're convinced you've got a good head on your shoulders. They're probably not just stroking your ego. They've taken an interest and decided you've got talent.
- You're curious about your boss’s job and what they do - It doesn't necessarily mean you want to steal their job. It just means you're invested and want to know more about how things are run.
If that's the case, you'll usually start climbing the career ladder soon.
