It's been more than a year since the world changed, but as we're beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel, are job seekers and employers ready to get back out into the world?

Despite an incredibly unpredictable 2020 where COVID-19 sent shock waves through the US economy, job seekers plan to search for jobs in 2021. While only 10% of job seekers said that finding a job in the new year would be easier than the year before, there’s plenty of positivity on the horizon.
At Nexxt we surveyed our job seeker audience in May 2020 to understand how they were initiating or continuing on their job search journey and we have recently polled our job seeker audience again to understand how the job search job continues to change.
With the priorities of companies, employees, and job seekers changing so rapidly, we wanted to go back to the source to understand how job seekers are searching for jobs at the moment.

The holiday season is officially here and that means it’s time for companies to host their annual holiday party.

At one point in time, success for the US worker was synonymous with climbing the corporate ladder and paying one’s dues. The common career path included a lifelong commitment with one organization, with sights set on a series of promotions over several decades. Today’s workers, Millennials now the majority, have different ideals about success and many don’t march to the same beat as the generations before them. A recent study asked more than 11,000 job seekers how they define career success and it found that the modern day worker’s notions have evolved.
According to a recent survey of more than 11,000 active and passive job seekers, the definition of success has changed.
No longer are we tied to one company that will take care of us in our retirement or guarantees us a salary increase for being loyal.

Nexxt asked these thousands of job seekers how they define a career and what they are looking to get out of their current or next job.
So as a recruiter these things are good to know.
