So here we are in 2022, I have to admit I keep writing 2020 still so I am very out of touch it would seem!
Most people I have spoken with have voted against new years resolutions this year and instead opted for “bucket lists” or looking back at what they are grateful for or would like to change. So whilst the topic for this blog was meant to be New Years Resolutions instead I thought it would be good to look at this one instead……
“At the end of 2022 as the clock strikes midnight will you be happy if you are still in the same job with the same company?”
If the answer is yes then huge congratulations but if you feel the answer will be no then chances are you already identified that you need to make a change.
There are many motivators that we have when it comes to our employment; money, team, hours and feeling valued are often the top! It is important to look at your reason for wanting to move roles and to look at whether the grass really is greener elsewhere. I will always ask my candidates what their motivations are to leave a role and it is important to consider these factors;
Why do you want to change jobs?
What kind of work environment do you want to work In?
What would your work-life balance be like?
What salary expectations do you have?
Does your new job have good growth opportunities?
What kind of challenges will you face?
Once you figure this out you are then in a stronger position to make a “positive change” rather than just move into a role that will become a “stop gap”.
2022 has already started off very strongly for Compass Point and we have an influx of fantastic opportunities so if you want to ensure that you can celebrate in style at the end of this year feeling reassured you made positive changes in your life then please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss roles within Food and Agri, Engineering, Office Support, Accountancy and Finance, Sales or Industrial.
