New Year, New Career? 7 Job Search Resources

It's a new year, is it time for a new career? With a new year comes many professionals making resolutions to climb the corporate ladder or find a new job.

The workforce and workplace continued to dominate headlines for much of this year as the strongest jobs market to date offered candidates a leg up and drove more and more professionals to consider new opportunities. Looking towards 2023, we know some of this will start to shift...but what will that look like?  

First, a quick level set on the world of work: 

In the beginning of the year, return to office plans were top of mind. After continuously being delayed, the big push to return in-person came this fall for 50% of workers, some for the first time in over two years. In response to worker demands for flexibility, many companies have adopted a hybrid work model.  

As open job numbers continued to soar, outnumbering job seekers by more than 4 million, many employees were given pay bumps and candidates were offered higher-than-average starting salaries for companies to attract and retain talent.   

In June, inflation hit a record high of 9.1% (it has since decreased to 7.1%), which indicates to economists that some variation of a recession is on the horizon. Large companies, especially in the technology space like Meta and Twitter, conducted rounds of layoffs , with no plans to fill the vacant roles. However – according to a LaSalle Network survey, 84% of companies still plan to add headcount in 2023. Not anywhere near the volumes as seen in 2022; however, companies are still investing in talent acquisition.   

As we enter 2023, job seekers may be optimistic but shouldn’t anticipate the same market we saw in 2022. With laid-off talent reentering the talent pool and fewer open roles, now is the time to be competitive, strategize and prepare a strong job-search strategy.  

We’re sharing our top resources to help build a competitive strategy to stand out in the job search and enter the New Year strong.
