Ok picture the scene – you are happy in your job. You get a call from Travail. Why should you be open minded enough to have a conversation with us?
Well, there are many advantages to discussing an opportunity even when your content with where you are. Hopefully, we are about to give you some insight into why it makes good career sense to be a little more open-minded when you get a recruiting call.
First of all, there is no better time for someone to evaluate an opportunity and company with a clear mind without any negative, outside influences or external pressures. Don’t they say “The worst time to go shopping is when you’re hungry.” You’re more likely to buy food that you know is not in your best long-term interests like gin and chocolate!!
It’s no different when it comes to only talking to recruiters when you are actively looking for a new job. Opportunities will appear to be more appealing than they really are when you’re unsatisfied in your position or company. If you look into an opportunity when you’re happy, you can clearly see how the opportunity would positively or negatively impact on your career since they’re not trying to fill a void. When your unhappy or running away from your current situation and more desperate to make a change the company you are applying to has more of a leverage position than if you were content.
Even if the opportunity discussed with Travail doesn’t entice you enough to move forward, in today’s corporate world, the only job security you have is the security you give yourself - If they don’t look out for your own career, no one else is going to do it for you. Having a connection with Travail a recruiter who knows you, your background, and your career aspirations is one way to do that.
If they’re happy, and performing well in your role then it sounds like your company is taking good care of you. Congratulations – stay put.
The current employment market is suffering an available candidate shortage and this is probably the best time in your career to take your successes and accomplishments and test what they’re worth to another organization, whether that means a more challenging role, a faster-growing company, or exposure to a new industry.
The best time for you to keep your options open is when you are satisfied in your current role and company. You don’t have to consider our opportunity unless it meets the criteria that you have set, not the other way around. There is no other way to learn as much about an opportunity without officially interviewing with a company itself other than learning about it from us on an exploratory and confidential basis. Actively looking for a job can be a full-time job itself and can be stressful. Come to Travail and let us help.
People who get ahead don’t wait until there is something that they don’t like in their current role to have an open mind. They are proactive and keep their options open.
So if you would like to know what the employment market is doing now, or what your career options are then call the Travail team today. We are qualified recruiters with a wealth of job knowledge in your local marketplace.
