A common complaint we hear from experienced accounting professionals is that they are stuck in a job they don't like and there is no way out. While it's true changing employers is never easy, it should still be considered.
With the types of job searching tools available to job seekers there is little excuse to not browse new postings on a weekly basis. Who knows, maybe an employer near you is offering better pay, benefits, increased responsibility or learning opportunities, even a better pension. Company loyalty is becoming a thing of the past. In fact, employers respect a veteran employee looking for new challenges late in their careers.
Many accounting recruiters are looking for quality people to add to their team on a contract basis. This can mean much higher pay and a more flexible schedule. As professionals, this can be a very good route to take. Your current employer may have forgotten just how valuable you are to their team. Looking around for new opportunities is part of the modern workforce flow.
