In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we got to thinking about the things in life we’re grateful for. If you’ve fallen out of love with the role you’re in now and you just haven’t got that same spark that you had at the start, it might be time to look for a new one.
The good news for you is that Glu Recruit is here to help you make the switch. There are endless benefits that come with changing jobs, and we thought we’d share our insight with all of you lovely people.
The road to self-discovery.
If you’re just getting started in your career, exploring different options is a great way of finding out what you really like. Securing that first role is super-exciting, but if you don’t love it, it might be time to change. It’s worth noting that it’s never too late to switch things up. Perhaps you’ve been in a role for years and it’s just not doing it for you, changing jobs can really improve the way you feel in everyday life.
A lovely looking pay rise.
Money isn’t the be all and end all when it comes to working, but it is important. Things aren’t getting any cheaper and your current wage just might not be cutting it anymore. When you work with a recruiter, like our lovely selves at Glu Recruit, you’ll be able to ask for any advice around salary and inform your consultant of the wage you’re looking for.
You could always ask for a pay rise within your current role, but there’s no saying that this is guaranteed. Some companies may have you waiting a while before you see your pay go up. We have devised a handy little tool that looks at the average salary for the job role you’re doing or would like to be doing.
You can then present this figure to recruiting consultants – or to your current boss. If you’re lucky enough that they honor it, congrats! If not, hit us up and we’ll help you find something new.
As Yoda himself once said, ‘with every new role, comes more skills.’ Or something along them lines… Moving jobs can open you up to new learning experiences that make you more employable in the future. Even if you’re moving to a new role but within the same industry, the businesses will work differently. This opens you up to become a more diverse worker, which employers love on a CV.
Networking made easy.
It’s no secret that the people you work with, make the job what it is in most cases. Having a great team and meeting new people allows you to make more meaningful, and purposeful, connections. Networking is huge for a successful career. Not only will it make your job more enjoyable, but it’ll open doors for you in your current roles and new ones in the future. Changing jobs can broaden these connections – no really, your LinkedIn will be booming!
