New Job, New City, New Life
There may be a point in your life where you are unhappy with your job. You might be underutilized, your might work with older technology, you might dislike the way your boss treats you or you might not fit in with your company's culture. Whatever the reason, you are in the right place. Here are Phoenix Staff we pride ourselves on finding our candidates the right job in the right place. You have made the first step in realizing that you are ready for a new job, possibly a new city, and a new life.
Your job should the the solution to life's woes, not the problem. Your job should give you security, financial compensation, a life outside the home, life-long learning and enjoyment. Perhaps you are being paid very well, but you absolutely abhor what you do. No amount of money pays for that kind of misery.
You realize that you want something real, not just something you call a career. If your current job isn't what you want to do for the rest of your life, then you know it's time to leave.
Now it's time to figure out what you really want to do. Here's where a recruiter can come in handy. Assess your skills and abilities to what areas you excel in, and communicate that with a recruiter. Remember, he/she is not just a recruiter, he/she is your recruiter. He/she will get to know you on a personal level to find out what makes you get up in the morning and actually want to go to work.
A career is just as much an idea as it is a job.
The basics for a new job in a new city for a new life:
- Move when you're ready to move, and have somewhere to move to
- Don't get impatient -- get busy, get things done.
- Make sure there's some money coming in on the other side of the door when you walk through it
- Find and remove any costs, debts or any other dead weights before leaving
- Don't invent problems for yourself -- you've done the worrying, now take care of business
