If you were in the same job position for 3 years (Every year you get a stellar review) would you...
stay for a fourth year anticipating they finally give you a promotion that you deserve or look for another job?
The question is not about for how long are you in the current job position, but do you still learn new things, develop your skills and competencies?
If the answer is "NO", ask for the job position change or simply start researching the job market. If the answer is "YES", just keep learning and increasing your value on the job market.
There's no harm in trying to keep tabs on possible job opportunities, but this may not be the greatest time to find something new. As you know, a lot of people are looking for work right now and hiring is down.
I concur this is a tough market and the only way I would leave a good job now is unless I already had something line up. Many people are finding it can take them up to 9 months or longer in this economy to find a suitable job that pays a living wage.
If you hold on, the pendulum will swing the other way and employers will be scrambling again to find good qualified people. Than you can pretty much ask for the moon and will more than likely get it.
This is the time to lay low develop your skill set and make yourself valuable. Good times are up ahead and with the right skill set you can make your move. Or, your current employer may decide they can't live with out you and increase your pay accordingly.
It depends. It depends on how happy you feel you are with the job. It depends on whether your supervisor agrees that you are ready for the promotion. It depends on how you view yourself if you do not get a promotion. It depends on whether you want to go to the trouble of looking for a new job with new responsibilities elsewhere. It depends on whether there are others in your organization who are just as good and with more experience who might be viewed as being in line before you. It depends on whether you want to develop new skills and competencies, and whether there is still opportunity to do that without a promotion. All these are questions only you can answer.
well...ask yourself these questions
1. Do you like what you do?
2. Do you enjoy working with the people in your office?
3. Do you see yourself working there for years to come?
4. Is there room to grow yourself there?
If you answered yes to at least 3 of these I would personally stay and see where it leads me especially in this job market we are in but as others have noted it never hurts to see what else is out there for you.
If you said no to at least 3 of these...start looking you are selling yourself short and could be much happier else where but don't leave until you have secured another job.
By the looks of it you must enjoy what you do if you keep getting "stellar" reviews year in and year out you might just be in a rut at work and are looking for a little diversity, if that's the case see if you can get some other duties or see if you can learn something in another department.
Best of luck to you!
