Whilst being loyal to your current employer is admirable, staying in touch with the job market can help give you a fresh perspective on your work situation and role.

Flirting with the idea of a new job can help you pick up on career trends and better prepare you for any major changes. For instance, you might notice there is a growing demand for technological skills, or you may stumble upon an interesting role, company or job title that are new to the industry. 

Staying connected and aware of the market will give you an advantage over your peers meaning you’ll be able to make an educated decision when an opportunity comes your way.

When you’re flirting with the idea of a new job it’s important to consider the following:

  • Salary – Salary research websites will help you do your homework, such as salary.com, Glassdoor and PayScale
  • Career progression – do the jobs your looking at offer career progression?
  • Company benefits – what benefits are on offer?
  • Geography – would you consider commuting further/moving for your next role?

Carrying out regular research on your industry for interview questions when the time comes. Not only will you be equipped with the knowledge, but you’ll also be able to aim for a role that meets your salary expectations and level of experience. Use research tools such as LinkedIn, social media, jobs boards and a workforce solutions company to help with your research.
