Would you take this job if we give you a turkey?

Yes, I’ve seen lots of posts from companies that need to hire people immediately.  And if you just show up for the training, you’ll get a Free Turkey!

My advice:  Don’t change jobs for a free turkey, but do look around at the new face of opportunities, the incentives being offered to competent, enthusiastic workers, and the potential for changing your work model dramatically.

I just received a call from a good friend who left a long-time position about two years ago.  He had been with this former company for many years and was highly respected there.  But he chose to move to another company in his industry where more innovation and opportunity seemed obvious.  Today he received notice that November 30th will be his last day.  Did he make a mistake in making that change two years ago?  Or has he perhaps refined new skills that make him a candidate for an even better opportunity now?

Remember that change is relentless and will affect each of us in some way – this year.  While changing jobs and companies may be intimidating, keep in mind the options that provides.  A career path within one company may likely offer 3-4% increases, whereas changing companies often allows a doubling or tripling of income.  And I often see that change – even unwelcome and unexpected change – serves as a catalyst for waking up long forgotten dreams and aspirations.  Could it be that the change you are facing could be the open door for finally moving into work that is meaningful, fulfilling – and more profitable than you’ve ever experienced?
