“You can find a job anywhere.”
“Jobs are easy to come by.”
So why is it taking so long for you to find a job?
Because not all jobs are created equal.
It is true that several industries have immediate openings, especially service-related roles, including retail, food service, hospitality, and senior care. What’s also true is that leadership positions and senior-level technical roles are often taking 4-6 months to fill. There will still be a large number of interviews and hoops to jump through with many qualified candidates being considered.
So get ready for a journey with many ups and downs and some formidable competition.
+ Professionally updating your resume
+ Activating your network
+ Brushing up on your interview skills
+ Pursuing multiple opportunities at one time
+ Knowing the value of your current compensation
+ Know your desired compensation
Buckle up buttercup, an exciting new future awaits.
