Are you the type of candidate that settles into a job for the long-haul or do you find yourself job hopping, continually feeling unsatisfied and unsure of your next move? If you fall into the latter category, you are not the only one feeling unsettled. An annual study conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and Globoforce, a human capital management software company, reports that a staggering 47 percent of the 738 human resource leaders surveyed say that employee retention and turnover is their top workforce management challenge.
With a growing workforce of gig workers, job hoppers and millennials, many medium- and large-size companies are feeling the burn when it comes to employee turnover. The key to retention is recruiting a candidate who will excel in the role they are hired for, but who will also be happy in that role down the road.
Are you looking to be challenged? If so, seek a job and an organization that can provide that challenge both presently and as the role evolves in the future. Do you aspire to manage a team? Look for a job that will provide room to grow and take on more responsibility. Whatever your long-term career goals might be, it is important to seek a job, and a company for that matter, that will ultimately support you on your path.
A Daunting Task
Does it seem near impossible to find a job that will satisfy your career goals both now and in the future? Interviewing alone does not usually allow candidates to really comprehend what the job will look like beyond the immediate day-to-day. Additionally, the interview process alone does not often provide true insight into the company culture and how you might fit into it once hired.
Working with an expert executive search firm like Torch Group gives candidates a leg up in gaining these valuable insights during the interview process, before you have committed to a job. The recruiting process should include competency and behavioral-based interviewing to truly get to the heart of an organization.
We often tell the hiring companies we work with that our search process will help to identify what makes a candidate happy and how they will thrive in the work environment. This will better guarantee long-term success. The same goes for candidates. Only you know what will allow you to succeed and feel fulfilled in the workplace. Working with a recruiter can enable you to identify a company and a job that can meets your needs and fulfills your future career goals. It is possible to find the job you love!
