Hey emerging HR Practitioners!
This is your podcast for practical advice, free tools and expert strategies to help you build credibility, confidence and ultimately a fulfilling HR Career. Whether you are looking for your HR role or looking to make an impact in your current one, there is something here for you to learn.
If you’ve listened to this podcast for a while or know anything about my background, you know that I have changed roles and employer’s a few times over the course of my twenty-plus years in HR. And when I tell people that until I became a professor, I had never worked five years or longer at any one place they often raise an eyebrow with a “there must be something wrong with you” kind of look. But I know that each time I have made a move it was for a good reason and in the best interest of my career or my family or both.
Now I also have a personality that makes me more comfortable with change and I am a bit of a risk-taker so for other people the thought of changing roles or organizations is terrifying. Perhaps that comes from a fear of rejection and maybe it is just a self-fulfilling prophecy. Either way, their fear of the new or the value they placed on security overrides any desire to take action. And so they stay.And sometimes staying is the right and best decision for all those concerned.
But there are situations where making a move is exactly what that person needs both for their career and their overall health and satisfaction. In this episode, I explore some of the signs that it might be time for you to make a career move.
Honestly, we only get so many trips around the sun and we spend far too much time at work for it to not be an amazing, fulfilling and satisfying experience.
