If you feel like your job search has hit a plateau, it may be time to switch things up and try a new strategy. What if we tell you that returning at Capco grounds is the most effective way to land your next job? Would you consider it?
According to a recent Monster poll, nearly 30% of respondents have already boomeranged back to their former employer. And 51% said they haven’t done it yet but would consider it.
"You’re much more likely to be considered for a job with an old employer than if you simply send your resume into the void."
I know what you’re thinking: “I left for a reason. Why go back?” Perhaps you exited because of an uncompetitive salary or a incompatible boss—but keep in mind that these things might have changed.
- YOUR ODDS OF GETTING HIRED BACK ARE PRETTY GOOD - For starters, you’re much more likely to be considered for a job with an old employer than if you simply send your resume into the void. In the past five years alone, 85% of HR professionals say they have received job applications from former employees, and 40% say they hired about half of those former employees who applied, according to research by The Workforce Institute and WorkplaceTrends.com.
- YOU’LL BE PAID LIKE A RETURNING HERO - Let’s face it: The longer you stay at your company, the more likely you’ll get stuck in a taken-for-granted time warp with minimal pay increases between 1% and 5%. Bummer, I know. But the great news is one of the best ways to boost your pay at a company is by leaving and coming back. I know this sounds counterintuitive, but from the day you left the company and started working at another–and even another and another–your value at Capco has likely catapulted way ahead. Those new skills you’ve acquired can earn you between a 10% and 20% increase in salary, as reported by Forbes.
- YOU’LL HAVE A SEAMLESS RE-ENTRY - By returning to Capco , you’ll be going home to familiar territory and reduce the typical ramp-up time of getting acclimated. Of course, you won’t be able to hit the ground running the minute you start—since certain things may have changed since you left and you’ll be learning a new role—but overall, you’re definitely looking at significantly less time to get situated compared to new hires. You know how to submit timesheets, how to navigate the intranet system, how to deal with compliance tutorials, . Another benefit of re-entry to an Capco: If you still have some friends, or at least compatriots, there, you’ll be happier—and you’ll have someone to have lunch with on day one.
