3 signs you should look for a new job

Did you have a bad day, or have you timed out of your company?

Your company is failing
Be attune to your company’s success — or lack thereof. “Staying on a sinking ship can damage your long-term prospects,” says Laurence Shatkin, a senior product developer at career publishing firm JIST. Those in sales or finance should have an accurate understanding of the company’s gains. “If the company is public, declining stock price is a signal that everybody can see,” he adds.

You’ve been passed over for promotions
We all get overlooked from time to time; but if this is an ongoing thing, consider other options. Terri Deems, career consultant and author of “Make Job Loss Work for You,” suggests first speaking with a “straight-talking mentor” before making any moves. “If all feedback says you’re the right person for these promotions, and they’re still not happening, chances are you’ve gone as far as you can in this organization,” she says.

You’re being given less work
This is not a good sign — most likely you or your company are in trouble. Adrian Miller, author of “The Blatant Truth: 50 Ways to Sales Success,” sees this as a moment to act. “At this point, you can’t lose anything by being direct and calling out your supervisor on the fact that you aren’t given the same amount of work and asking how the situation can be corrected,” says Miller. “This might prompt being let go, but isn’t it better than just waiting for the ax to fall?
