The Pros and Cons of Job Hopping

The Pros and Cons of Job Hopping

More reports and surveys showing that “job hopping” and a lack of perceived value being tied to tenure is on the rise. Is this just a trend or a more accepted norm in the world we live in today? Is it largely a bi-product of the extremely low unemployment rates of recent years and will it change when we see things swing the other way at some point? How much impact does the wave of young entrepreneurial tech billionaires who seem to have skipped over the traditional period of paying your dues have to do with this trend? All things to consider, but in general it does appear that younger professionals changing jobs on a more frequent basis is more accepted now than it has been in previous generations. Prior to the last 5 years I would say 3+ years was the expected norm for being in a job before looking at transitioning, but now we are seeing 18 months or less in many cases and the candidates don’t seem to be concerned about how it will impact their candidacy for new roles. At least not for now. In today’s blog I’ll dig in a bit on the topic of changing jobs more frequently than the norm and offer some insight to the potential benefits and draw-backs.

Benefits in Using Contractors

Benefits in Using Contractors

A recent trend seen around the globe is businesses moving towards utilizing contractors versus full-time employees. Not only is this an attempt to incorporate more lax employee methods and culture within the workplace, but it is also seen as a huge money saver for employers. Though contracts differ based on the person and assignment, this approach ultimately spares the company in various internal and payroll costs while providing the contractor flexibility in roles and organizations within their field of interest. Due to high demand, specifically in the IT industry, professionals are needed to cover multiple projects that may only last for a few months – This is where contractors are seen as a huge advantage. If you are considering hiring outside expertise, here are benefits around securing contract workers for year-end, IT-based ventures.
