There are several good reasons to change jobs. Recent data says in a healthy economy, employees can see an eight to ten percent boost in income when going from one company to another. Staying at the same company for more than two years could actually cost you 50 percent or more in lifetime wages. That is a good reason to keep moving around. If you are considering switching jobs for a better opportunity, it is critical to do it the right way. Jobs Across the World connects employers with job-seekers every day. After submitting your resume, you receive job openings to your inbox.
As tempting as it is to accept an offer when a new company offers a substantial wage increase, take time to think about whether the position is the right one for you and your family. Money doesn’t always mean happiness. Make sure the job keeps you on the career path you want to go. If it ends up in a dead-end role, it will not benefit you at all. Be careful not to job-hop too often. Staying at a job for a year or longer will make sure you do not appear flaky or non-committal. When you do decide to leave your company for a better opportunity, it is important to resign professionally. Do your best to give your boss at least two weeks’ notice, and even offer to be available even after leaving. Be sure to job-hop the right way so that moving around can benefit your career in the long run. Jobs Across the World is committed to helping employers and job-seekers across the globe to connect anytime and anywhere.
