They start the segment with this CareerBuilder survey Workers Reveal Plans to Land New Jobs in 2017 and the headline that 22% are planning to change jobs in 2017.
I say during our chat that I would have expected the number to be a bit higher. Saying that… no way that high of a percent will change jobs in 2017. It’s easy to say one is looking for a job but a whole other thing to do it.
A couple of tips I did not get a chance to mention:
- Try not to send email to friends, peers and colleagues that say, “I am looking for a job” or “I am looking for a marketing job”. They likely don’t know what you do, what you are looking for. Tell them, give them bullet/talking points. Paint a picture for them.
- “Who do you know who is hiring…” is a great open ended question to ask. Usually we ask, “Are you hiring?” and with that comes a yes or no. “Who do you know who is hiring…” turns into a networking conversation and you may learn a number of companies who are hiring.
