How long do recruitment agencies take to respond?

In the real world of recruitment I tend to get feedback from my clients within a few days – no more than a week or two. If you don’t have feedback after a week you can pretty much guarantee you’ve not been successful.

What time of the year is best to find a job?

January and February is the best time of year to look for a job. Hiring managers have received new hiring budgets for the year, the majority of workers are back from holiday vacation, and companies also often have a backlog of hiring that they have been meaning to do but had paused during the holiday season.

Can a new job not be what you expected?

Sometimes, even when you do everything right, a new job isn’t what you had expected it would be. It can happen – even when you’ve carefully researched the organization, weighed the pros and cons of the job offer, and thought you had made a good decision. Jobs don’t always turn out like you would have hoped or as you would have expected.

What happens to your unemployment when you get a new job?

In most cases, once you find your new job, your benefits end. The only time your unemployment doesn’t end with a new job is when your income is less than the amount you were collecting on unemployment and you’re working less than full-time hours. In these cases, your state can often offer you partial unemployment benefits.

Why did I accept the first job offer?

Now you might be trying to leave because of one or more of these facts: The job or the company wasn’t what you were promised during the interview process.

What to do when you get a new job offer?

You’ll want to avoid the perception that you’re leveraging one offer for another, but try to remain open and honest during the process. Nancy Noto, former director of people at Mic, said that if your preferred company is slower to make an offer, tell them about the less desirable offer you have on the table.
