Many people have been hesitant to make a move during the pandemic. And after speaking with thousands of people over the last year, I completely understand. However, with the uncertainty caused by COVID-19 waning, now is the time to make a career move.
Companies Are Hiring
Institutions are hiring, and many are desperately looking for people to fill the critical openings they have. Based on your skill set and career goals, you can decide where you want to go. Openings are abundant, yet many people are still hesitant to leave their current positions. We are once again in a candidate-driven market, and businesses recognize this. As a result, they are making the changes that people are looking for in a career move. We have never seen so much remote availability with roles today. Additionally, institutions are increasing salaries and making total compensation packages more enticing.
Compensation Packages Are Increasing
I just had a client call me and say they completely adjusted their compensation structure. So, if you were to be hired now, you would make 10-20% more than the same time last year. Businesses are getting the point. Candidates tend to think, “the longer I hold out, the better.” However, if you stay because you’re comfortable, you will miss out on these incredible compensation packages. We talk with hundreds of people that say they want more pay but are just too afraid to make a move. Now, as the pandemic is trending downward and jobs stabilize, it’s the perfect time to make a career move.

Sure, it’s uncomfortable to start a new position. You have to make new work friends, establish bonds with new bosses and subordinates, and get your footing with a whole new employer. But life is an adventure, and making a move will ultimately be great for your career. Now is the time, so contact me today to discuss what’s on your horizon.
