You’ve probably been reading the wild stories about the job market in the US right now. While the US is experiencing the largest economic recovery in the world, there are still a large number of job-seekers that are delaying their reentry into the job market for a number of reasons. But it’s important to note that a massive opportunity exists right now for those who want to change careers or find a new job. Our advice: beat the rest of the crowd and get started now.
GET AHEAD OF THE OTHERS
It’s no secret that the pandemic created a crisis of job losses, furloughs and other unfortunate events surrounding employment for millions of Americans. As vaccination rates increase and unemployment benefits expire, the number of people job hunting is growing exponentially every day. The good news is that it’s still early in this growth period and the early bird gets the worm, so to speak. If you haven’t started your job search yet, now is a good time to start your search, before the job market becomes slim pickings once again.
COMPANIES ARE REWARDING STRONG INDIVIDUALS MORE THAN EVER
As companies continue to compete for new talent, many workers are enjoying higher wages and more benefits. If you have a strong track record of delivering good work to previous employers, it’s possible to leverage that for a new role with higher pay. Some common benefits that employers are currently offering could include:
- Paid time off
- Child care assistance
- Flexible work schedules
- Signing bonuses (in some cases)
- Healthcare benefits
- Much more
INCREASED FLEXIBILITY IN THE WORKPLACE IS TRENDING
Many company leaders agree that in-person collaboration and physical offices will never be fully replaced by remote work. However, companies are currently re-thinking how workplace flexibility improves the lives of employees. Expectations at work have also changed with a shift to remote work all over the world. Many job opportunities are allowing for a hybrid form of work or increased flexibility of hours.

The truth is that opportunities exist in nearly every industry right now and more people will be looking for jobs as we move further into the summer and fall seasons. Now is the time to get started!
