In this day and age, most of us are lucky to have a job and the ability to support ourselves. And many of us may find ourselves that we never or no longer want and like. Still, we stick it out just to make ends meet.

Yet, according to experts while you can never find the ideal employment and the “perfect” position or working environment, nor can you walk out every time someone or some thing agitates you, it’s important to pay attention to your doubts and listen to your gut.

Still, how will you “KNOW” when it’s officially time to move on? According to experts there are some sure telltale signs.

1. Being Passed Up For Promotion: The added bonus or gratuitous gift is nice, but being overlooked for a position and/or promotion you’ve been vying for can signal you that it’s time to say goodbye…especially if

· Your boss offers “your” promotion to someone else despite efforts on your part to groom yourself for the position or if your boss had implicated offering it to you.

· There’s nowhere else (up the ladder) to go.

2. You “Hate” Your Job: We are all willing to do things we don’t like or are overqualified for, for a while but, after some time we all want to be acknowledged and appreciated for our talents. Finding yourself in an unappealing position may be signaling that it’s time for you to find our where you stand and if you have any opportunity for advancement. If not, it’s time to “confront” and perhaps quit.

3. You Trust No One: Besides feeling like you have to compete with your coworkers for your overdue advancement, raise or promotion, you feel like your supervisors have it out for you. They never keep their word and you are always overlooked. Don’t get caught up in this web of lies and lack of good faith, Instead pack your professional bags and take your talents someplace else.

4. It’s Only A Matter Of Time: You can see the writing on the wall. From being let go to your company downsizing you live in “fear” on a daily basis waiting for the other shoe to drop. Before finding yourself out on the street or on the unemployment line with lots of others, do yourself a favor and bail out before you are forced to jump ship.

5. The Captain Abandons Ship: If you notice a change in your boss’s behavior, if he or she doesn’t come in as often, if he or she loses interest in hosting meetings or logging progress or if he or she inexplicably resigns, you may want to follow his or her lead and follow suit before its too late.
