The gates have opened …
In the past couple of months, our inbox runneth over. We’re averaging about 50% more resumes than we have in the past several years. It appears that jobseekers know the timing is right for a new job, or just a job, if they’ve been out of work. News sources have been warning companies that a lot of employees are unhappy and biding their time to make moves to new jobs. It appears they were right.
Digital traffic control is slowing down with this influx, so remember to re-attach your resume when corresponding with hiring managers or recruiters. This is especially helpful if you have followed the path of responding to a post and then are fortunate enough to have pull-through from a referral on the inside of the company.
There are new positions opening up every day, but most positions have narrow requirements and the line of qualified candidates is long, so make the effort to stand out from the crowd in a positive way.
