The New Year brings lots of opportunities for a fresh start. Many people think of it as a good time to put out feelers for a new job.
But is the New Year really the best time to start searching? Many experts say just follow you heart, and your head. It matters less when you begin looking for a new job, than why. Getting passed over for a promotion, watching another coworker get groomed for the post you thought would be yours, all these are valid reasons to feel you’ve outgrown the relationship with your current employer. Chances are that your experience might be the perfect fit for another company in the same industry. If that’s the case, you must do your homework and prepare to move on.
One way to prepare is as simple as changing your wardrobe. Dressing for the position you see yourself in can have a positive effect on your aspirations. When you dress and feel the part, you broadcast with confidence that you are ready for the next move. The good news is that Groupon Coupons offer a money savings solution to the new look you’ll need. Groupon Coupons is a new feature of Groupon that lets you apply online discounts for instant savings on many name brand items from stores you know and trust. NY & Co, for example is a go-to site for women who need to update their look, but are short on time and money. (Ladies, right now, you can save up to 70% off wardrobe staples and you can even save $25 just for signing up for their email list).
While some say the first quarter is an ideal time because budgets are replenished, other experts see companies using that as a “wait and see” period to make sure last year’s expansions and expenditures produce the intended results. Most agree that the holiday season and summertime are not ideal, but with a little daring and some good contacts, even those times can work to your advantage.
What all will agree on is that you want to look the part when you do land an interview. Even if your ideal workplace is known for being so laid back you can skate down the halls, make sure you’re looking good as you go by.
