Now that summer has officially arrived, it's getting increasingly difficult to be at work while the sun is shining and the temperature is rising.
But what if it's not just the lure of beautiful weather that's causing you to cringe every morning when the alarm goes off? If you're unhappy at your job, now is as good of a time as ever to re-evaluate your career path and determine whether you're ready to look for a new opportunity.
First, evaluate your current situation to see if there's anything you can do to make it better or if it's truly time to switch jobs. Then, prepare for your search by asking yourself some questions about what you're looking for and how you want to get there. After that, make sure you get all of your application materials (resumes, cover letters, etc.) in tip-top shape.
