New Year, New Job?
The end of the year is when many people take stock of the current year and plan for the next. At least it seems that way in recruitment because we see a flood of activity prior to the Christmas period that extends into the new year. A lot of new applications tend to come at the end of the year and a lot of new jobs tend to open up at the beginning of the year. A report by Morgan & Kinley estimated that people in their 30s would have changed jobs 8-10 times by the time they are 42 and change careers 6-8 times by the time they retire. What this means is, very many people are looking to move jobs and many of those people are looking to move into new jobs in the new year. However, studies have shown that only 10% of people making New Year’s resolutions actually stick to them for more than a few months.
So if changing jobs is on your resolution list for 2017, start now so that when the new year comes, you’ve already got a list of target companies and better still, a couple of interview lined up to start the new year with. If you haven’t started applying yet, the Christmas period may be a good time to update your CV, check out those courses you always wanted to do, look at what’s available in your industry and apply for the jobs you’re interested in because if you put in the work now, the new year might actually bring you a new job.
