How to find a better paying job
#JohnMasudParvez #CIO #Founder #President This is YOUR year, and it’s time for a new job. Here’s how to make it happen. The champagne has been popped, the decorations are packed, and we’re closing in on Valentine’s Day. Translation: If getting a new job was on your list of 2019 resolutions and you haven’t done anything yet, you’re officially procrastinating. It’s time to get out there and make your move. Don’t get me wrong, waiting until the new year to look for work can be the smart thing to do—reducing frustration since many companies slow their hiring in December as they wrap things up at year-end. But now, it’s time. Here are five ways to get the ball rolling now. ➡️ DECIDE WHAT “PERFECT” MEANS TO YOU If you’ve said aloud that you want the “perfect” job or the “best” job you’ve ever had, but you haven’t taken time to make a list—preferably a written one—of the exact qualities you’re looking for, then do that first, suggests Megan Murdock, executive board member of CBIZ Women’s Advantage, a program that directs the development of female professionals. Consider the type of work you’re looking for, location and commute, title, pace of environment, bonus potential, flexibility, training opportunities, growth potential, travel opportunities, etc., Murdock says. Then, rank these in order of priority. Go into any negotiation with a clear understanding of what each of these things means to you. ➡️ LEVERAGE YOUR NETWORK Here’s the mantra to sticky-note to your bathroom mirror: Don’t. Be. Shy. “Many job-seekers don’t realize that employees are often incentivized to help recruit employees,” explains Jody Greenstone Miller, CEO and founder of Business Talent Group, an online marketplace for independent talent. ➡️ COMMIT YOURSELF TO ROCKSTAR PERFORMANCE IN YOUR CURRENT ROLE “For example, you could volunteer to lead a team training or sit on a committee whose mission matters to you,” she says. The next step will be to make sure those activities are reflected on your resume. “Hiring managers love to hire people with a strong track record of leadership, as it shows they can contribute to a team’s overall growth and advancement.” ➡️ AUDIT YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS If you did this years ago and you haven’t been to any drunken frat parties since, you may be rolling your eyes right now. But even grownups need a cleanup sometimes. Our friends may have a bad habit of tagging us in not-so-flattering photos or we may have gotten overly political one night after that third glass of rosé. The point is that you take some time to polish and update your digital presence, Chavez advises, adding that social channels really can make or break an employer’s first impression of you. ➡️ Even grownups need a cleanup sometimes. And if you have a couple years’ work experience under your belt, don’t just stop at cleaning up your social presence—start using your channels to display your talent, advises Megan Driscoll, CEO and founder of EvolveMKD public relations firm. “I always recommend that people should create a social persona that showcases your wins and your relationships in your industry. You should also try and paint a picture of who you are as a person,” ➡️ DO YOUR HOMEWORK—AND DON’T PUT TOO MUCH EMPHASIS ON TITLE As you’re checking out available roles, don’t get too hung up on a particular title being offered by a company. Different companies define jobs differently, Murdock says. “Don’t have tunnel-vision and let the job title discourage you from applying. Make sure you drill down to the job role and description into what the day-to-day is. This practice also ensures that you’re casting a wider net to find your next role.” Once you target the companies you want to work for, it’s time to do some in-depth research on the ones that are the best match for you, and that have the greatest likelihood of advancing you on your chosen path, Miller says. The site Glassdoor—which offers company reviews from real employees—can be useful in that regard. But of course nothing beats an in-person conversation with someone who works for or used to work for a particular company, which is why it’s so important to start reaching out to the folks in your network from day one.
