I wanted to put some people at ease that have been reluctant to consider taking temporary roles or positions they feel are below them if they have had little choice throughout the course of the lockdown and as we begin to get back to normal.
Right now, we are in the middle of a tough time, to say the least... before COVID many people would only be moving jobs if it was the job of their dreams with career potential and development and a great salary of course. These days have become limited. This means you’re going to have little choice but to work in situations, for companies doing jobs you would have previously turned down.
If you don’t feel comfortable doing this it’s important you know that in my experience it’s okay and that there are many companies I have spoken to that are prepared to reward when things pick up which is pretty much inevitable. This means it’s an ideal opportunity to get your teeth stuck into a job you may have missed before that could have huge rewards because you supported the company when they needed supporting most! So have a look outside the box from time to time and you may be surprised at how the roles you feel are below you, can change into a fantastic opportunity!
