Are you feeling the itch for a new job? Is it time for a job change? Feeling stalled in your position and wondering what to do next can be a common feeling. There’s really no hard and fast rule about the best time to find a new position. Many personal and financial factors need to be considered before making a change. Below are a few things to think about before you take the next step.

Have You Received a Raise in the Past Year?
If the answer is “no” and you definitely feel that you are due, it may be time to ask your boss for an increase in pay. As this Fast Company article notes, it’s now the norm for employees to ask for a raise rather than wait for the standard annual increase. As Tom Abt, Senior Recruiter at the UCPath Center in Riverside, California, says, “I might not be prepared to give an employee the raise but if he or she makes a compelling argument, I’m surely going to try very hard to make it happen.”
Considering relocating for a job? Here’s what you need to know.
Feeling Professionally Stalled?
UCPath Center’s Training and Development Systems Analyst Ida Robles spent 12 years at her last job and said the idea of a job move was intimidating. She was comfortable in her routine but felt stalled in her career. The UCPath Center changed all of that for her personally and professionally.
“Everyone here is paving the way for something,” noted Robles. “It’s a good feeling to know that your input is wanted, appreciated, welcomed and that you’re invited to speak up. There’s a constant need for ideas on how to improve and that’s very refreshing.”
