Why January Is The Month To Change Jobs


WRAPPED IN MY PURPLE, WE LOVE IT YOU LOOK GREAT. THANK YOU. A NEW CAREER BUILDER REPORT FINDS FEWER THINGS STRESS AMERICANS OUT MORE THAN FINDING A NEW JOB. A BLIND DATE THEY SAID WOULD BE LESS STRESSFUL, 20% FOUND IT LESS STRESSFUL WAITING FOR TEST RESULTS FROM A DOCTOR. THAT IS STRESSFUL. TODAY WE ARE FINDING OUT WHY JANUARY MIGHT BE A GOOD MONTH FOR YOU TO START YOUR SEARCH IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO CHANGE JOBS. THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. JANUARY, A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK IT MAY BE TOO EARLY TO GET STARTED. JANUARY IS THE BEST TIME TO GET STARTED. A LOT OF HIRING MANAGERS ARE BACK FROM THEIR VACATIONS AND THEY ARE EAGER TO GET HIRING PROCESSES STARTED AGAIN. JANUARY IS TYPICALLY THE BEGINNING OF THE FISCAL YEAR FOR MANY COMPANIES AND THEY WANT TO GET POSITIONS FILLED SO THEY COULD HAVE A FIRST AND SECOND GOOD QUARTERS. HERE ARE SOME DO’S AND DON’TS. LINKED IN IS PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT TOOL YOU CAN USE. UTILIZE IT TO LOOK AT THE COMPANIES YOU WANT TO WORK FOR AND THEN START FOLLOWING THOSE COMPANIES PAGES. THEN SEE IF THERE ARE INDIVIDUALS THERE THAT ARE DOING THE JOB YOU WANT TO DO, REACH OUT TO THEM WITH A PERSONALIZED MESSAGE TO MEET WITH YOU. DON’T TREAT LINKED IN LIKE YOU TREAT YOUR FACEBOOK ACCOUNT, KEEP IT VERY PROFESSIONAL. VERY SMART. WHAT ABOUT ONLINE APPLICATIONS? [ INDISCERNIBLE-MULTIPLE SPEAKERS ] THEY ARE AWFUL. IT TAKES FOREVER. FROM WHAT I HEAR THEY CAN BE. I WOULD SAY MAKE SURE YOU ARE TAILORING YOUR RESUME TO MATCH THE JOB DESCRIPTION FROM A KEYWORD PERSPECTIVE. IF I WERE APPLYING FOR A JOB I WOULD WANT NETWORKING AND INTERVIEWING LISTED ALL OVER MY RESUME. MAKE SURE YOU TAILOR TO THAT. HOW DO YOU FIND OUT WHAT THE RIGHT KEYWORDS ARE? READ THE JOB DESCRIPTION. IF THERE ARE WORDS REPEATED MAKE SURE THOSE ARE IN YOUR RESUME. DON’T USE THE AUTO POPULATION FEATURE THAT BRINGS EVERYTHING FROM YOUR RESUME INTO THE APPLICATION, TAKE THE EXTRA FEW MINUTES TO FILL IT IN. ONE OF THE MOST STRESSFUL THINGS ABOUT THIS PROCESS IS THE JOB INTERVIEW ITSELF, WHAT ARE SOME GOOD TIPS? IF YOU DO GET A INTERVIEW CONGRATULATIONS BECAUSE IT IS VERY COMPETITIVE. I WOULD SAY DO SOME RESEARCH NOT ONLY ON THE COMPANY OR THE JOB BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY WITH THE INDIVIDUAL YOU WILL BE INTERVIEWING WITH. IF YOU CAN UNDERSTAND A PERSON’S BACKGROUND AND INTERESTS YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DEVELOP RAPPORT A LOT QUICKER WHICH IS HUGE. HOT JOBS THIS YEAR? I WOULD SAY ARE ANYTHING INVOLVED WITH STEM, COMPUTERS, ANALYSTS AND SCIENCE.
