Let’s be honest – there are a lot of reasons to not go to work right now. Unemployment benefits are great. Companies are not increasing their wages enough to justify leaving the house. Traffic is already getting bad again and the bridge tolls have only increased since your last commute. Schools still remain mostly closed in most parts of California.
We understand why you might not want to return to work. Although there are good reasons to stay home, we hope you will trust us when we say that there may never be a better time to get a new job than right now. You should trust us because we have helped good people find good jobs in Northern California for over 20 years.
Here is why you should take a job right now:
- Higher starting pay rates
Although you might not see it, companies are increasing their starting pay rates for entry-level and experienced new hires. We are seeing pay rate increases between 20 and 30% for warehouse and office positions (in some cases, we are seeing pay rates jump from $16/hour to $22/hour with benefits).
- Make more money long term
If you take a new job and have a higher starting wage, this means that you will qualify for bigger raises if you keep this job. Most companies base your raises on your starting wage.
- Try something new
Because it is so hard for companies to find people, many employers are accepting applicants without the same required background experience as before COVID. So if you wanted to try out a new industry or job function, now is your chance!
- Unemployment won’t last forever
Unemployment benefits run out in September. When that happens, everybody is going to get a job at once, which will lead to lower pay rates. Beat the rush, take a job today, and make more money than you did before.
- Get out of the house
Post-COVID anxiety is real. A new job could help you return to normal life by giving you structure and something new to learn. Why not?
Oftentimes, BOLT is able to get higher pay rates for people who find a new job through us instead of on their own. We are your advocate as you return to work.
