Is your job still ‘working’ for you? Or maybe you’re feeling the need to move on? According to a recent survey , 75% of employees in NZ want a new job! So what’s driving this need for change? Lack of career progression and good old-fashioned boredom seem to be the main factors. But hey, there’s a skills shortage out there so now’s a great time to look for a better job. Here are five very common signals that you might be ready for a job change and some handy tips from Job Source to help you make the move: #1: On A Road To Nowhere? Many job seekers on Job Source are gainfully employed but are looking for a new position that offers better advancement opportunities. This could mean switching companies or even a new career. So get on the right road— search Job Source for your type of job , create an alert, and get emailed whenever an appropriate position is posted. Even if you’re not quite ready to jump—you’ll get valuable insight into the job market and who’s hiring. #2: How Flexible Are You? No, we’re not talking yoga here (although it probably helps!) For many people, the most desirable job feature is not the pay level or prestige—it’s the flexibility to fit work around their other life demands. Part-time jobs or online jobs for home-based workers are highly sought-after, particularly for those with young kids. It’s a good job our site allows you to search for part-time, contract, temporary, and casual jobs! #3: A Fresh Start Sometimes it's not about the job - it's the location or the environment that needs changing. Could you do the same work—in Hamilton? When you search jobs on www.jobsource.co.nz, you can select your preferred region, we’ve got jobs in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch and throughout New Zealand. #4: A Robot Stole My Job Technological Unemployment is the loss of jobs caused by automation or new technology. There’s no argument that some jobs in New Zealand have been affected by technological advances but history has shown that change always creates new work opportunities and can lead to more skilled employment. Many new jobs are going unfilled due to skills shortages, particularly in ICT , Construction and Logistics . . #5: Show Me The Money We’ve left the most obvious reason till last. Income can vary greatly according to job type and qualifications ; even positions with the same job description can have big differences in pay. When sussing out a job or career change, take into account all the reasons for making the shift—mo’ money might sound good, but will the new role demand longer work hours or a bigger commute? Highly paid positions mean greater scrutiny of your application, so make sure your cover letter and CV/Resume are working for you.
