Why you must act quickly if you want to beat the competition and secure your dream job in 2021


Our new motto for 2021 seems to be: “Let’s put 2020 behind us”. And why wouldn’t you want to? It has been a year full of change, stress and let’s be honest – not a whole lot of fun. If that stress has been amplified current by your job, it may be time to start planning for a new one.

If you are thinking about making a career or job change for 2021 – you’re not alone. In fact, 16% of Australians are planning to pursue a job change in the next one to three months.

But did you know that the average time it takes to finalise your job change has increased over the last five years and is now a huge 63 days!

It’s longer than you would expect, but when you take into consideration the searching process, interviews, second interviews (and sometimes third!), as well as the leave you give to your old job, you start to see where the days add up.

The new year is just weeks away, and when you take into consideration shut-down periods over Christmas and New Year (because let’s be real, you are not going to be in job searching mode the day after Christmas), that leaves even less time.

This is exactly the reason why you should be starting your job search now to start 2021 with a bang!

The other reason why now is the perfect time to start your dream job search is that the start of the new year tends to be a time when everyone is on the hunt for a new job. It seems to be one of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions.

In a post-COVID world where jobs are the new premium, you can expect to see the number of job seekers increasing by the day. This can make the competition extremely high and might make it more difficult to land the job you are wanting.
