Time to quit?

Do you have a wandering eye?  No, I'm not prying into your personal relationship, I mean when it comes to your job are you "still looking?"  Don't feel guilty; there are clearly issues that impact people everyday that lead them to wonder what else is out there.

Forbes recent ran the article "Do you hate your job?"  which explores why certain people leave, and why they stay.  It comes down to articulating what it is at work that is bothering you.  This may require more than a simple statement, it might take an entire notebook to write down all the reasons you are dissatisfied.  The key is that once you've gotten it all out in the open, so to speak, really analyze what you can change and what you cannot.

I really liked the last two posts -- really helpful and encouraging information. It is hard to leave a job you feel safe in and actually get out there to start looking again. It is even harder when your employer gives you some incentive to stay. I recently started looking again but sometimes feel insecure about my skills, especially since I am looking in a different field. I also need some motivation to actually update my resume and start getting it out there. Good tips though
