Happy in Your Current Role? What If a New Job Could Make You Happier?

Even if all is well in your current job, it’s still a good time for look for a new one. Why? Because your dream job could be just around the corner and you won’t know it unless you’re looking. There are some other benefits to looking for a new job, even when you’re happy in an existing one. These include:

You’re more confident.

Since you’re not between jobs or not in a position you dislike, you’ll be more relaxed and confident during the job search and in interviews. If you don’t get the offer, then it’s no big deal. However, if you do, it could be a big step up in your career.

You’re more appealing to employers.

Companies want to recruit those who are already employed and successful in their current roles. If you’re on track and performing well, then you’re more attractive to a company, particularly a direct competitor of your existing employer.

Your bargaining power will be greater.

If you’re already happy and secure in an existing role, you will be in a good position to negotiate. You won’t have to worry about lowering your salary expectations and can ask for more money, better benefits and other extra perks.

You can take your time.

If you’re looking for a new job when you have one you’re happy with, there’s no pressure. You’re not desperate to leave a job you don’t enjoy or a boss and co-workers you don’t get along with. Nor are you unemployed and willing to lower your standards to get an offer. You can take your time until the ideal job comes along.

Overall, when you’re happy, confident and secure, it’s going to come across to potential employers. This will make you more appealing to them, so you can eventually land your dream role – one that’s at a higher level and comes with more money and stature.
