Change jobs for the right rea­sons

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Career One -

CHANG­ING jobs or ca­reers should be un­der­taken thought­fully, even if op­por­tu­ni­ties ex­ist in abun­dance. Con­sid­er­a­tion must be given to whether or not such a move will use the can­di­date’s unique strengths and skills, says Brid­get Beat­tie, re­gional gen­eral man­ager of Right Man­age­ment.

‘‘ At this time of year, while many peo­ple re­solve to achieve suc­cess and per­sonal sat­is­fac­tion in their ca­reers, em­ploy­ees must be sure not to make im­pul­sive, snap de­ci­sions based on only one or two fac­tors — such as a re­cent dis­agree­ment with your man­ager, or a smaller than an­tic­i­pated raise or bonus.

‘‘ De­ci­sions about whether to change jobs or ca­reers need to be based on a com­plete pic­ture, and not just one in­ci­dent. The grass isn’t al­ways greener,’’ Beat­tie says.
