If You’ve Tried Hard To Find A New Job Without Any Luck, It’s Time To Pivot And Start Over
0

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused devastation and destruction. It’s not just a health crisis any longer. The outbreak and governmental measures enacted to deal with it has irrevocably changed the lives of millions of people. Six months ago, you may have had a great job and a fast-growing career. Now, you’ve been laid off with no prospects in sight. No matter how hard you try to find a new job, things just don’t seem to click. 

One of the many consequences of the pandemic is that you’re now forced to make some very difficult decisions about your career. If you’ve been actively, aggressively searching for a new position, treating it like a full-time job and did everything humanly possible to succeed, but came up short, it may be time to reassess your work-life.

After valiantly searching for a new job without any luck, nibbles or real interviews, it’s time to start reevaluating your options. You may have to confront the stark realization that this part of your life and career could be over. Easier said than done, it’s time to pivot toward something brand new and start rebuilding.

This may come across as cold and callous. Having to walk away from a career that you love is beyond traumatic. Entering the unknown is terrifying. The majority of people self-identify with their job and career. Without it, they’re lost. Sometimes, unfortunately, you don’t have a choice. The decision has been made for you by the marketplace.

Rather than lament your fate, view this as a do-over. You now have the chance to reinvent yourself and start anew. Here’s some signs to look for to determine if it’s time to pivot, recharge and reinvent yourself. 

If you’re in your late 30s or over and earn a fair amount of money, in a cost-conscious environment, the cards are stacked against you. Corporations look for younger, less-expensive talent or folks who will work on a temporary or contract basis. 

For the last number of years, companies have been stealthily relocating massive amounts of jobs to lower-cost cities in the United States, as well as a variety of other countries. The reality is that the jobs where you reside don’t exist as much anymore. When they do, you may be priced out. 

Even if you say that you’d accept a lesser salary, companies are reluctant to hire. They’ll view you as a flight risk as soon as the job market improves or you’ll be disgruntled after a while—since you’re working for less money than you deserve. There’s also the erroneous viewpoint that older, more experienced workers are headstrong, feel they know it all and are firmly entrenched in their opinions, whereas younger talent is more mailable.

You might just be sick and tired of what you’ve been doing. After years of being in the same profession, it can grow stale. The same responsibilities, dealing with the same people, problems and pressure feel like never-ending torture. There’s a lack of passion that you once held for your job, career and company. When you feel this way, you know deep down that it’s time for a change. 

Now is the time to act. In an age of upheaval, hiring managers will understand your interest in trying something new. We’re entering an era where most things will be fresh and different. In a strong economy and job market, hiring managers will look askance if you’d want to leave a great, well-paying job. 

Today, many people are reevaluating their needs, wants and goals. They seek a meaningful job that serves a higher purpose. As we’ve confronted our own mortality, seeing the daily death count from Covid-19, there’s the recognition that life is short, precious and fleeting. 

You may feel that it’s time to embark upon a job or career that offers a deeper meaning compared to what you’ve been doing up until now. There’s an inner nagging feeling that you are supposed to be involved with something bigger and better and have been held back by the cultural norms. This period offers the excuse and chance to pursue your true passions. You no longer have to keep doing something you hate that doesn’t help people or benefit society. 

This will be a tough endeavor. We’ve been tested over the last six months. You may have noticed that you’ve become stronger, resilient and open to new ideas and changes. Pivoting to a new career or job is part of this process. It will be a challenge, but it’s a chance to start over again and lead the life you really want to live.
