Am I moving to Greener Grass?

You've been offered the job of your dreams. You are excited, you'll show everyone what you are made of. But before you hand in your notice just take a moment to reflect – will I really do better elsewhere? In your current role you are probably protected, you understand the company, what is required of you. You have a reputation (which might be why you are going of course) and a whole load of relationships that will have to be broken, new ones made. How long will it take you to get back into the same position? How long will it take to be trusted again? How long to trust the new team? We all want to work with people who have integrity and care. You know who they are and they probably genuinely care for you -those relationships could be lost. In your new job you are going to be judged by new standards (without the benefit of the doubt because you have proven yourself in the past). In the role you are leaving everyone accepts you for who you are – good or bad. There’s no pain without gain, no reward without risk but before you reach the point of no return just make sure the risk is worth it. You owe that much to yourself and your career.
