Cube life is for the birds

switch_career_splash Cube life at the office got you down? It might be time for a new job but there are good reasons to make a career change and there are  not so good reasons. The homies at Lifehacker have some tips for you to consider when you are ready to bust out of the job cage.

Here are some bad reasons to switch careers:
1. You hate your boss. (Switch jobs, not careers.)
2. You want more prestige. (Get a therapist – you’re having a confidence crisis, not a career crisis.)
3. You want to meet new people. (Try going to a bar, or Club Med. What you really want is to get a life. Pick up a hobby.)

Here are some good reasons to switch careers:
1. You want a role that is more creative, more analytic or more management-oriented.
2. You want to live in a location that does not accommodate your current career.
3. You want more flexibility or fewer hours.
