How Many Times Should You Change Jobs Before It’s Too Much?

Finding a job that is a good fit can be tough. Many people will get hired only to find they really aren’t happy in the position.  Others will find themselves involuntarily leaving companies because they are let go.

While you aren’t going to stay at every job forever, you can have problems finding new work if you leave positions too often. Employers are often reluctant to hire people who they do not think will stick around, which can be a problem if you have an employment history that shows a lot of job hopping.

On the other hand, staying at your job for too long can also be a bad thing. You may become content with not getting benefits or raises that you deserve, and you could be deprived of learning new skills that enhance your resume.

As you consider your career opportunities, it’s important to think about the impact of frequent job changes so you can make the right choices for your future.  Some factors to think about include the following:


  • If you stay with a company for more than two years, you may get paid a LOT less.

You probably think that staying at your job for a long time is a good thing; this may not be true in all cases. Studies have shown that people who stay at a company for more than two years get paid as much as 50 percent less as those who move on to new opportunities.


  • You could benefit from internal advancement opportunities if you stick around.

Although some companies may not “take care” of long-time workers, others make it a point to promote from within. If your company values your contributions and provides opportunity for advancement, moving up the corporate ladder could give you a successful career without the stress of interviewing for a new position.


  • You can learn new skills if you switch jobs more frequently.

Research suggests that people who change jobs more frequently tend to be better performers at work. Regularly starting at new companies helps you get better at making a positive first impression and ensures you don’t fall into a routine and stop advancing your knowledge.


  • Employers are turned off if they see you as a serial job hopper.

Although changing jobs can be a good thing, it could also make employers think you cannot commit and leave them wondering when you will walk out on them after they dedicated their time training you.

Since you do not want to stick around for too long, or change jobs too frequently, it is best to evaluate your job situation every three to four years. If you have the chance to grow professionally and are being paid fairly, you may want to stay where you are. If you are ready for new opportunities, contact The Reserves Network: Staffing professionals can help you to find the right next step for your career.

What to Expect in an Interview with a Recruiter

A recruiter is a useful resource to help you find work. Recruiters have relationships with many companies, and their recommendations hold weight to the businesses they work with.

Making a positive and lasting impression on a recruiter could be the gateway toward professional success, while a bad impression could prevent you from being considered as a candidate for all of the companies who trust the recruiter to do their hiring.

Because it is so important to make a positive impression on a recruiter, you absolutely need to be prepared and ready to ace your interview. Knowing what to expect during an interview with a recruiter is the key to acing it. During your interview, keep in mind that recruiters:


  • Ask tough questions…be ready.

A recruiter wants to find out information regarding your job skills and abilities. Recruiters also want to know what questions you have. Be prepared with good answers to common interview questions and with intelligent queries that show you’ve given thought to the job-search process. You should also be ready to tell the recruiter about yourself and provide a brief summary of the reasons you are a good candidate. 


  • Assess your professionalism.

The day of your interview, dress in appropriate business attire, make sure to arrive on time, and be prepared to provide clear and concise answers. Don’t tell long stories or share too much personal information. Behave professionally in all of your interactions with recruiters: this means not disappearing on vacation without telling the recruiter, making sure the resume you give the recruiter is up-to-date and includes your address, and telling the truth about any gaps in your employment history or other past employment issues. 


  • Match you to the right companies.

A recruiter wants to make sure you are a good fit for a job and that the job is a good fit for you. Be honest and upfront about what you are looking for. Don’t just say you will work anywhere; provide the recruiter with useful details about your interests. The more info you offer, the more likely it is that the recruiter will find you an appropriate job.

Recruiters are your allies in the job search, but this does not mean you can be overly causal about your meeting with a recruiter.  Take a phone or in-person interview just as seriously as you would meeting with a company that could hire you. Making a positive impression on a recruiter opens several doors for your future career.

Finding the right staffing professionals to impress is the key to making your job hunt a successful one. The Reserves Network has a long track record of placing qualified candidates in great jobs. Contact our team to discover how we can help you advance your career today.

What Does AI Mean for Your Hiring Initiatives?

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is no longer the stuff of science fiction novels. From handheld phones with virtual assistants to the algorithms that tailor Netflix recommendations to viewers, Artificial Intelligence is working behind the scenes to improve people’s lives in countless ways. AI can be a powerful tool that is useful not just in these familiar applications, but also for handling complex tasks like recruiting job candidates.

Early AI, or Classic AI, worked by giving computers a series of rules to follow so those computers could perform functions the human brain could easily do, such as adding two numbers together. Artificial Intelligence has now evolved far beyond Classic AI into a new era of machine intelligence. With the new developments and continued technological advances, there is tremendous potential for Artificial Intelligence to forever alter the human recruitment process. It is vital to understand the impact of AI on hiring initiatives, both for recruiters and for companies seeking qualified candidates.

How Artificial Intelligence Will Impact Hiring Initiatives

AI is going to impact the hiring process in profound ways. Possible impacts of the rise of Artificial Intelligence include:


  • Changing the nature of the workforce

AI is making it possible for robots to do many of the jobs that people once did. By 2025, as many as 25 percent of jobs will be replaced by robots or automation. Companies need to assess financial and other benefits of hiring a person to fill a position versus using a machine. Skilled professionals will also have to be employed to design, implement, and oversee the operation of robotics in companies that opt for AI to take over essential work tasks. 


  • Changing the process of finding candidates

Using artificial intelligence, companies and candidates can be matched by sophisticated algorithms. AI is no substitute for a professional recruiter, however, as intelligent machines still lack a deep understanding of humanity. When a company is looking at candidates for an open position, a job seeker may appear perfect “on paper.” Unfortunately, things like emotional intelligence and social skills cannot effectively be measured by machines. Recruiters will still be needed for in-person interactions to analyze responses to contextual questions based on specific job requirements. Good recruiters will use AI as one of the many tools available in their arsenal to help companies identify the very best human resources to meet their needs. 


  • Expanding the data available for assessing candidates

Machines are very good at analyzing massive amounts of data very quickly. By combining machine intelligence with the ability of computing devices to effectively analyze different variables, companies that are hiring can obtain and assess massive amounts of information about a wide range of job-seekers. Software can be used to determine if patterns in past experience suggest an ability to succeed in a position, while other programs can be used to quickly eliminate candidates who lack skills that are essential for a given position. 

The Reserves Network is a forward thinking organization – contact us today to discuss the various screening systems and tools we can employ for your company. Contact us today to discover how our recruiting professionals use artificial intelligence, along with traditional best practices in job-placement, to help companies identify the very best candidates for their workforce.
