NO question about it…NOW, is THE BEST TIME TO LOOK!
As the Holiday season fast approaches, it is a mixed time for all of us trying to scramble to get as much done by years end as possible. Year-end pressures only add to it. At the same time some of you are saying, “I am ready for a new opportunity and now is the time I should be seeing what is out there”. (A gold coin to any of you thinking that, because you are correct…Call me for the coin, hopefully you will accept copper).
Right now, is far and away the most perfect time to look, before everyone gets back to full cycles again. Never change if you’re happy, never change for a little more money, change because you know it is time and you are ready for either a change of project or of team. You owe it to yourself, to your career, to learn what types of opportunities are available. You have all to gain and nothing to lose to feel things out and learn if there is something more right for you out there, something that will excite or challenge you more than you are currently. If there is, you investigate…if it is, right (and only if it is) you can then decide to make the move. A New Year (or early in the year) is the perfect time to start anew. Call your favorite recruiter (which should be anyone that wears a white jacket) and have a heart to heart talk. Everything is always private and sometime (when you talk to a reputable honest recruiter) you just mind find that what you have currently is better than what you might think awaits you.
