New Year, New Job

You’re not alone if you’re thinking of changing jobs.

Right now, as you’re reading this, more than 1 in five employees are polishing off their CVs, updating their LinkedIn profiles, and getting ready to head off to an interview that might change their lives in 2016.

There are many reasons why people are choosing to leave their jobs and venture into greener pastures.

Of course, at the end of a year and the start of a new one, many people begin to introspect and review what they achieved over the past year: what brought them satisfaction and what left them yearning for more.

A survey of 1,000 full-time employees by an international people management consultancy found that the reasons why workers plan to find a new job are:
  • To seek out better pay and benefits (48%)
  • To have more opportunities to develop (44%)
  • To find more satisfying work (32%)
All valid reasons, and all motivating factors for people to make the jump to a new position that fulfils their professional ambitions.

Never a better time to make changes

Although you can pursue a new job any time of the year, there are several reasons why the start of a new year is probably the best time to make switch jobs.

Firstly, companies who were working on their annual budgets at the close of the year will usually wait until the first weeks of the new year to post new vacancies.

Secondly, since the holidays are right behind us and decision-makers are returning to their posts after the Christmas shutdown, you have a better chance of finding your new job quickly since hiring processes typically move faster and more efficiently before other work and distractions begin to accumulate.
