Career Toolkit


If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it’s probably time that you at least re-evaluated your career and how you really feel about your job.

  • You can’t picture your future with your current employer.
  • You are unhappy or bored at work and spend your time clock watching.
  • You are unhappy with your salary.
  • You have been passed by for promotion.
  • Your current role does not offer any career progression.
  • Your current employer does not provide any training and development.
  • You feel constantly undervalued.
  • You dread going into work in the morning.
  • You feel unmotivated.

If this is the case, you need to ask yourself the following questions in order to understand your motivational factors.

  • What do you enjoy about your present role?
  • What don’t you enjoy?
  • What do you feel is missing?
  • What have you enjoyed about any previous roles you have done?
  • What would be the ideal role / situation for you?
  • What salary and benefits would you like to achieve?
  • What obstacles are in your way?

Only once you understand these factors, can you begin searching for a new role.
