When is the best time look for advantageous employment opportunities? When you’re already employeed. Why? It provides you with an escape route — let’s be honest, most of us have worked for at least one employer we couldn’t stand, it proves whether your skillelsets are still in demand in your respective industry and gives you leverage to negotiate term compensation teems if you feel you deserve more for you efforts.
Should you take a job that pays you less? That all depends on you and what your aims and goals are. Because you can always make the money. But being valued and appreciated is becoming more and more rare to find among employers.
