Hey everyone not sure if you have recognized this, but a brand new trend in the Talent Acquisition Hiring world has taken on a very unique direction since the start of 2021!
More and more people are quitting their jobs. People quitting jobs is nothing unique, however it's the fashion we are seeing people quit that is keeping Organization Leaders up at night.
People are just quitting their jobs without "rhyme or reason". Many are quitting to take on another career, and even more are quitting because they want time to interview for other jobs that might be better than what they have and their current position is getting in the way. With so many openings out in the market they think its a calculated risk to take a few months off knowing they can land pretty quickly if there strategy doesn't work out.
Research has shown that people quitting their jobs since the beginning of 2021 is in the millions. Some have nicknamed it "The Great Resignation"!
The unfortunate thing is that the amount of opportunities are getting so overwhelming and unless "YOU" the candidate know exactly what you are looking for, costly mistakes are being made where candidates are taking the wrong job putting themselves in a worst situation then what they had. Even if the money is better.
I have a couple pieces of advice:
1) Do the research and not just on the organization you are looking to join but internal research on yourself. Take inventory on what you really want out of a role and your values you hold in high regard in the next position and company you go to work for.
2) Try to find a seasoned Recruiter or Career Coach who is in the business that you trust to give you some "real" advice and not just tell you what you want to hear.
I'm working with a couple people now who are needing help on making that next strategic and smart move for them. If anyone every wants to run a situation by me just DM me. Happy to weigh in! #opportunities #career
