Career Advancement: Willingness to Change Companies

DO YOU HAVE TO MOVE OUT TO MOVE UP?

It is a big commitment to change companies and/or location in order to gain a promotional position.  It is an even greater commitment to resign without having a new job to go to.  You would need to think very carefully before taking that step.

Keep the following in mind:

  • Determine your primary motivation at this point
  • Decide if your current department can offer the opportunity you seek
  • Launch a quiet search to see if the company can offer you the opportunity you seek
  • Evaluate whether you are willing to wait for a promotion here or whether it is time to begin a job search in the marketplace
  • Think very carefully before making the decision to leave your company without having landed a new job
