Want to Earn More?


Bloomberg reports today on careers that offer significant pay increases. Most workers are looking at minimal salary increases even though the unemployment rate has fallen. Workers in technology and finance have seen wages grow between 4-10%.   What can you do to earn more? For most working people, especially those with college degrees, the best way to earn more is to find a new job. In many cases, new employers tend to offer more than current employers. Another way is to try to take the next step up the career ladder. Two clients who are clients in the grocery industry have told me that they have hired department managers with little experience. Why did they do this? Turnover. As the job economy heats up, there is more opportunity to move up because the experience employees are less available. If you’re unhappy with your current income, find a way to make a move.

Relocation and Career Success


USA Today offers a great article on people to have to move for a new job. 15% of executives and managers had to move to take a new position. The article attributes this situation to two factors: an improving economy and job seekers’ willingness to move. Many of my clients can’t move because of family commitments. Those who can expand the market for their services. In a job market where salaries are still tight, moving to another city can be a way to earn more money. Relocation should be an option in a good career management strategy.

I presented at a career fair yesterday and learned many great strategies and tactics that I’ll be sharing in the blog over the next few days.  Here’s a great one from a recruiter:  If you want more money, find a new employer.

For most workers, raises have been small or none over the last few years.  In some cases, employees have even faced pay cuts.  The best way in this economy to get a bigger piece of the pie is to find a new employer, one that needs your skill and will pay you more.  The job search is never easy, but it can be the best way to get a raise in the current job market.
