Unhappy at Your Current Job? It’s a Great Time to Be a Job Seeker

Unhappy at Your Current Job? It’s a Great Time to Be a Job Seeker

If you’re looking for a new job, now’s the ideal time to launch your search. With so many job openings across a range of industries, employers are struggling to find and hire qualified candidates. This means more opportunities for you. Here are a few more reasons to start your job search sooner rather than later: 
You can find a better fit job. 
For many people, the COVID-19 pandemic has given them a chance to step back and evaluate what’s important to them. If you’re one of them and you’ve realized that you’re not in a job that’s suited for you, now’s a good time to search. Think about what is key for you, whether it’s a more flexible schedule, a step up in your career, or a job with less stress. You’ll have more satisfaction and fulfillment when you find a role that’s ideal for you.  
You can find a higher-paying position.
Since employers are having a difficult time finding candidates due to the pandemic and related issues, many are offering higher salaries and additional perks, like sign-on bonuses. If you search for and land a new job, you could find one with more attractive wages, improving your quality of life in the process. 
You can search a range of remote positions. 

Not long ago, working remotely or telecommuting was something only offered by a small number of companies. Today it’s the norm. If you want a job where you’re able to work from home some or all of the time, now’s the time to start looking. There are countless employers out there, large and small, offering more scheduling flexibility and the opportunity to work from home. You can achieve a better work-life balance as a result. 
You’ll have less competition. 
During the height of the pandemic, many workers were furloughed or laid off. A large portion of them have not returned to work. What’s more is that federal unemployment benefits have been in play for months, ending September 6th, which is another reason those who are unemployed haven’t returned to the workforce.  
For you, this all means less competition from other candidates. However, many will likely start looking soon as those benefits end, which is why now is the time to begin your search.  
You can access the hidden job market with a recruiter. 
If you turn to a professional recruitment team, like Gill Staffing, you’ll be able to access the hidden job market. These are opportunities that companies don’t publicly promote but look to their recruiters to fill instead. With so many individuals still out of the workforce from the pandemic, there are more of these opportunities than ever. You could be a step away from your dream job with the assistance of a professional recruiter.
