Tomorrow is Monday. And if you're dreading it—and Tuesday, and Wednesday—that might be a sign that it's time to rethink where you show up at 9am each morning. The New York Post asks career experts how to know when it's time to quit, and they caution that it's important to differentiate the occasional itch to move on from a true red flag (like the aforementioned one: being unable to remember what you liked about your job in the first place). They offer 6 more signs that it's time to walk away from your job:

  • You don't dream of filling your boss's shoes: Take a look at those in the positions above yours. If those jobs don't interest you, you may be "spinning your wheels."
  • The company is in trouble: The problem doesn't have to be you. If you notice lots of senior-level employees jumping ship, or layoffs are looming, it may be time to move on.
  • It's costing too much: Some strain is normal, but if your personal life is a mess because of your job, you may want to reconsider. "If you have to schedule two hours with your family on Saturday because you’ve got so much work to do, that’s not going to work out so well over time," says an executive coach.
