Looking for a job in 2020 may be potentially different. Job seekers should be mindful of the ways they need to adapt to the times. Whether you’re finalizing a new career move or looking for entry-level work, it’s important to update your search methods to make sure you’re making every move to find that perfect position. Here’s the best 2020 Job Search advice from CCS Construction Staffing.
In the new decade, job seekers will need to treat remote work seriously and expect organizations that utilize work-from-home methods. Remote work is now an extremely valid option for some trades. You may even be able to execute a project manager position from afar. Companies may be willing to roll with creative solutions to hiring issues, and you need to be just as prepared to meet them halfway.
Candidates Need a Brand
In a 2020 job market, it’s not enough to have a great resume. You need to sell yourself, and do it in an effective and modernized way. That’s why you need to brand yourself. Pump up your social media presence and create a vision of yourself to help explain to employers who you are and why they need your specific, unique personality on their team. If you can’t cultivate your career goals and personality into something that can grab the attention of a hiring manager, your job search may suffer.
Never Skip Negotiation
If, as a job seeker, you have talked yourself out of asking for a higher wage, you need to stop right there. These days it is completely unacceptable for you to sell yourself short because you haven’t researched talking points or you feel the company has no wiggle room. If you receive a job offer, you owe it to yourself to propose a counteroffer. Back it up with evidence of why you’re worth it, and pitch a higher number. The worst thing they can say is no.
