These jobs aren't loyal?
 

 
So I know someone who is pretty successful who lives by "these jobs aren't loyal". She thrives to chase titles and doesn't get too comfortable at her work place so it's no surprise to see her jump from one legit company to another with a better job title.

Basically what I got out of it from her, always stay looking for a job even when you got a job because these jobs will replace you quick.

I know I mentioned in a past thread I thought about leaving. But now I've embraced being patient and try to get better at my job. Typically the higher ups at my job just stayed patient and eventually they moved on. My job's real big on promoting from within.

My alma mater has networking events, resume reviews, etc. I thought about participating in that. I've done it in the past when I was looking for a job. Would it be a good idea to entertain that?

She’s absolutely correct. One of my old bosses told me “everybody is expendable” and I keep that in my head not with just jobs but life in general

I did this in a span of 2 years and I increased my salary A LOT.

I'm with her 100%, chase titles, don't be loyal, make that $$$

Unless you’re in a great company where you know you can move up or know people up above, you damn near should always keep that resume fresh and start applying elsewhere. Can’t be complacent. At the very least continue to build skills to make more money.

Yeah I believe I'm a part of a great company but it's not like I'm making great money but I am making the best money I've ever made. I'll definitely upgrade the resume and Linkedin etc. I'm a college grad making 34k age 30. A career counselor advised me I should be making atleast 50k. I know folks at my job usually get a promotion within a year or two. Only thing I was kind of hesistant about was my job history. I haven't had a job outside of Uber longer than 7 months. One of my goals initally was to do a year but the opp to make more money is very intriguing.

It looks bad if you job hopped that much (7 months or less). I agree with their logic but what works for some people won’t necessarily work for you. If they are getting certifications, have higher education, and know people, it’s a lot easier to hop from one company to another. If you’re going from entry level to another entry level job, it’s hard to expect a 10-15k raise each time. Being underpaid is something you can discuss with your supervisor.

There are very few companies out there where its worth "sticking it out" and trying to move up. Costco is one of those companies that come to mind.

The other 98% of companies out there will replace anyone for any reason. The days of sticking with one company for your entire career are long over.

Yeah true. I know there's room for on my top to improve my performance but yeah maybe there's some job out there pays more out there that would make use of my skillset. Yeah I definitely been advised not to make lateral moves. 10k-15k raise would be lovely. I believe I'm set for a raise this year. I know I get a bonus next month.

True.

Know your worth
Put that resume out there and go on interviews even when you aren't actively looking for a job

I worked at my last company for 5yrs but did this last year, and going thru the intvw process and hearing the starting salaries I realized I was wayyy underpaid. These were similar jobs to mine, similar duties, similar background requirements....but the ones I intvwd for paid 10, 20 sometimes 30K more than what i was making at the time. Now I've been at my new job 6months and I'm already getting my phone intvws in for my next, higher paying position

Unless you REALLY love your job, company loyalty is dead...it's all about maxxing your earning potential and finding companies who are willing to pay you for the skills you bring to the table

I guess its what you call edutech...online learning, instructional design, setting up classes, user support, etc

Was working that one job (at a university) for 5 years but looking back, they gave me wild flexibility that I needed during those yrs that I might not have gotten at a diff company. It was a decent tradeoff for a while w/the lower pay but more flexibility, but it got to a point where I really just needed more income, was getting stretched too thin every month paying bills and not saving

Move if you have to. My current and last job were at small businesses where the next level needs to die or retire. My resume stays fresh.

I have a friend who just hit his five years at a local fortune 500, so I don't blame him for staying put because there is plenty of opportunities to move within.

You should be making way more. You gotta learn how to ďpadĒ your resume. If I worked at a job from Jan-June and was laid off from June-Dec you just put you worked at the job from Jan-Dec. employers dont want to see gaps on your resume or alot of jobs.

Another example is dont put every job you worked on there, only the ones that make you look good. If you were on hard times and had to work at a gas station for a couple months youre better off just leaving it off your resume.

The reason you can get away with it is high turnover. If you worked at Autozone as an a*sistant manager 3 years ago for 8 months but lie on your resume and say a year and a half nobody will ever find out for one simple reason. Nobody you worked with at the proverbial autozone 3 years ago probably still works there so there will be no one around to say otherwise. Obviously if you worked for a small business and the same manager or owner has been there you dont wanna exaggerate about a place like that, but for the most part retail has so much turnover you can put whatever the fu*k you want on your resume N get away with it
