Are you starting to get itchy feet? Well, you’re not alone. In the past two years, we’ve seen a record number of people abandon their roles in a phenomenon called “The Great Resignation” or more recently “The Big Quit.”

This mass exodus was stimulated by many different factors. First, the Covid-19 pandemic has caused many workers to re-evaluate what they want from their careers. Months of lockdown gave us plenty of time to think about our goals and how we can achieve them. Many employees were faced with the stark reality that their current position was not really benefiting them.

Second, the rise of telecommuting. Working from home is a bit like Marmite, you either love it or hate it. Since 2020, most techies have experienced it in one form or another. It has helped us understand where we work best, whether that be in the office, at home or perhaps a hybrid approach. As we exited the pandemic, many people decided to switch roles to better align with their preferences.

Finally, we have the cost of living crisis. The eurozone is now undoubtedly heading for a recession, but meanwhile people are struggling to make ends meet. Over the past six months, inflation has soared across most of the bloc (German inflation peaked in 40 years in August), with the price of everything from gasoline to milk rising. Of course, this encourages employees to look for higher salaries and more impressive benefits, and who can blame them?

So if you’re considering a career move, you’re not alone. In fact, according to a study by personal in the UK and Ireland, 38% of workers are thinking of changing jobs in the next six to 12 months. But how do you know you’re not just following the crowd?

That’s how you know it’s really time to quit your job.

1. It’s too easy

Your work must be challenging. Not necessarily in the way “Monday mornings give me a crippling anxiety,” but you should be constantly learning and developing. Otherwise, really – what’s the point?

Feeling comfortable at work is great, but if you find yourself doing the same job day in and day out with no chance for career advancement or variety, then you’re going to get bored and probably a little lazy too. You have to move up to a higher position and a better salary.

2. You can’t remember your last good day

Listen, no part will be sunshine and rainbows all the time. It’s normal to have weeks or even months where the work is just a slog, especially if you’re working on a big project or campaign.

But there should always be happy moments. Maybe when you landed a big account, you finally fixed that annoying bug or ruined your big presentation. If you can’t remember the last time you had a really good day at the office, then maybe it’s time to look for a new position.

3. You are “quietly quitting”

The term “quiet stop” has been making the rounds on social media, especially TikTok, for the past few weeks. But in reality it’s not a new concept, people have been doing it for years – older workers will know it as a “go slow”.

It is when an employee restricts his duties to tasks that are strictly within his job description to avoid having to work longer hours. In short, they do the bare minimum necessary to maintain their role.

It sounds fair enough, right? In theory yes. But if you have absolutely no passion or interest in your role outside of the 9-5, then this could be a sign that you’re not in the right gig. Work shouldn’t rule your life, but if you’re not enthusiastic enough about working an extra 20 minutes here and there, something is wrong.
