There are times that the situation you are in is excellent, you enjoy working with your boss and colleagues, and the company is growing. It is just time to implement a plan that you have held for some time regarding a change of venue, department or function.
Keep in mind the following:
- Assess whether two-three years in your current job will give your next boss or employer confidence that you have the necessary skills and experience
- Analyze your plan and make sure that you have spent time evaluating where you have been, where you are now, and where the next step will take you
- Evaluate whether you have the necessary skills to perform successfully at the next level
- Assess whether your network has expanded enough and is current enough to help you to accomplish your goal
