Surveyors: Are job security fears holding your career back?
If so, you could be limiting your career for years to come.
The one thing I am asked for by employer’s time and again, are “dynamic Surveyors”. This essentially translates to “people who want to get on and make something of their career”.
Gone are the days of 7-10 years stints in a company having huge value on a CV. More often than not a long stint raises questions, such as: –
❌ Why have they not moved on?
❌ Why have they not diversified and broadened their experience?
❌ Are they not driven to push their career forward?
This may seem unfair, and some would say that loyalty to an employer should have ultimate value, but that’s just not how clients see it nowadays.
True value from an employer’s perspective comes from breadth of experience and the drive to work hard. They understand that these employees will be adaptable through their broad experience, and ready to work hard to move their career forward and reach their goals.
But I’d be lying to you if I said there weren’t any risks involved in changing jobs and moving to a new company.
You know as well as I do that it’s unwise to jump blindly into a company purely based on a flashy package as this can lead to many problems down the line.
This is why it’s important to explore these risks as part of your job search. For instance, by looking at the overall stability of a company.
The Surveyors who are making strong career steps now are making strategic moves into companies that have strategic plans to cope with current and future market conditions. This is Key.
The bottom line is, I understand your concerns. I don’t work with unstable companies for the same reason that you wouldn’t want to work for them. Risk.
I understand the trust that candidates are putting in me when searching for their next career step, in the current market more than ever.
