Where to after 65-67?

posted in: Latest News | 0

A question I am sure many heading in this direction will be pondering as I have. In today’s modern fast paced Corporate environment maybe the real question should be where to after 50? I’ve found most people I talk to at 50 don’t have a clear vision for their future for them it’s all about in the now.

The reality is we may have longer to live than any other generation before us. Some of you may ask should I keep working past 65/ 67 and for some SME’s owners this may be possible depending on their businesses but for most in the Corporate sector we have a use by date.

Unfortunately, this may be sooner than we think as restructures are occurring more frequently, downsizing continues in middle management, technology taking over some of our tasks and some employers not feeling the love for holding onto or hiring older employees.

One hope for some, is that they secure a retrenchment package or cash in on their long service leave to assist with the transition to their next phase of life. But what happens if that does not occur, if we were to suddenly find ourselves out of the workforce tomorrow we could feel a real sense of loss and belonging which could result in depression, anxiety or fear of the future for some of us.

I believe if you need to make time and plan as early as 50 so you can adapt to sudden changes in your circumstance more readily.

Ask yourself – What would I do with all this free time; How would I cope without having my work routine; What interests outside of work do I have currently; Will I need to find another job; How long will my finances last; Can I create an new income stream. These are just some questions that need answering.

So “What Does Your Future Look Like.” Remember life is not a dress rehearsal.

Your Future – Where do you see it?

We all have read articles about the future of market research and where it may end up. More importantly where do you want to end up! Most young people I speak with have a vision of working for themselves one day not many seem to want a career within an organisation or what we use to term climbing the corporate ladder.

Why is that?
Are companies not providing you with the stretch you need? Is it lack of mentoring? Do you seek a more flexible work environment? Do you want to make your own success?

Some of you will succeed I am sure of that, but most will still need an employer so its important to ensure that your clear on the pathway forward to stay engaged and keep learning.

What are Employers Looking For ?

posted in: Latest News, Outsourcing | 0

Having spoken with some key clients over the past month there seems to be an emphasis on skills and ability followed closely by cultural fit.

Agencies regardless of level want someone who can hit the ground running, who knows their stuff and can demonstrate this in quick time. Clients what someone who has had exposure to their business sector and understands how a business uses market research as just one tool to make decisions.

Interviewing and References

Most companies now will have you undertake a practical test module and or psychometric testing in some form prior to finalising an offer. References whilst still required are more far reaching with clients using LinkedIn and other social media platforms to check you out, so be aware what you put on Facebook or other social media as this could impact their decision to hire you.
