“Exceptional person still wanted for $150k+ salary job in Taumarunui“, I’m sure that you would’ve seen or read this article that has gone viral in the past month. If you’ve been living under a rock, the article covers the story of a high paying General Managers job for ‘Forgotten World Adventures‘ in… now here’s the twist… the King Country town of Taumarunui.
While companies across New Zealand work to tie up loose ends before the end of the working year, recruitment gets put on the back-burner faster than Michael Bublé in January. Hiring new staff is not a priority for many companies as compared to the new year where we see high competition for our best candidates.
We’ll let you in on a little secret… December is the best month of the year to hire!
Who do you trust with your career? Is the question every job-seeker needs to be asking themselves when working with an external recruiter. Having a great recruiter can truly be life change whilst a crappy recruiter can burn your career with only few sloppy actions. But how can you determine who is good and who is garbage? It’s tough when they all say the right things and make big promises.
In recruitment, attracting the best talent within a competitive job market has always been the most vital aspect of the growth and success of any business. Although this principal still stands tall, recent employment trends have continued to indicate that an increasing amount of working professionals are turning to freelance/contractor work. Is this where the future of employment is heading? And are the benefits that much better than permanent work? Well, just like anything else, this decision depends on your individual situation and your preferences.
Red eyed and under-caffeinated, I had an odd thought as my AirNZ flight began it’s decent into Christchurch early yesterday morning. Christchurch is a Sunrise City! not purely for it’s east facing orientation, but it’s rebirth following the earthquakes of 2011.
I had it! I was done! Enough was enough and I was out the door! All the empty promises, the bickering and bullsh*t. When I dropped the bomb, anger soon turned to sadness, through heavy tears they whimpered “I..I..I. can’t picture life without you, please please don’t go, I’ll do anything…ANYTHING!” Though tempting I knew I had to go and I DID! Now given this was my girlfriend and not my employer, I perhaps may not have first hand experience in dealing with a counter offer, in fact I’ve been told my last resignation letter has been laminated and framed in my old bosses office, BUT I’m sure the situations are similar enough to help you realize why taking a counter offer won’t fix your relationship but only delay the inevitable.
