The Great Resignation
Updated: Jan 26
You may have already heard of the Great Resignation, but what exactly is it? Well, it's the economic trend in which people are leaving their careers and positions en masse.
The number of people leaving their jobs since the Covid-19 pandemic is at record highs. Experts are referring to this phenomenon as the Great Resignation.
People lost their jobs, had their hours reduced, and faced pay cuts throughout the pandemic. Even large companies could not keep their employees safe during these turbulent times. Going through such difficulties made many individuals question their job and career choices. Why should you stay with a company or career if they don’t provide real job security?
Under appreciated and underpaid for too long, people want more and now see that they can have more.
Amidst the uncertainty and mass lay-offs, a ray of light is shining. We are currently emerging from the pandemic tunnel, and we’re finding a world of possibilities.
People went from working one job for one company their entire lives to changing jobs within their careers. Now, we’re experiencing greater shifts in our society, and people are opting to change their jobs and career paths to suit their passions.
You can take control. Today, we have access to more resources and more opportunities than ever before, and we’re choosing to enjoy them.
Create your own rules
So, what does all of this mean for you? It means that you have a once in a lifetime chance to do and be all that you want and more.
The pandemic forced all of us to adapt. Working from home has become a reality for many of us in recent years, and that ability has opened up a world of potentials. There is no more wasting time on slow commutes and no need to be fixed in one place.
Many companies are still playing catch up. Employers are not doing enough to make their employees feel valued, so they don't want to stay. In today’s climate, the reality is that people have more options than ever before. You don’t have to be tied to a particular job unless you choose to be.
It’s time to think. Does your current career offer everything that you’ve been dreaming of?
Now is the perfect opportunity to re-evaluate your career and your path. People around the globe have proved that we can perform just as well working remotely.
You don’t have to stick to the same job, in the same city forever. If you wish to, you can start remote work today. There are more and more online opportunities every day.
For instance, you could become a Virtual Assistant now. All you need is a computer, phone, and internet connection. You probably already have all of these. And you don't have to do it alone The VA Way has an online coaching programme to help you get where you want to be.

Why not join the thousands of others who are changing careers and grabbing life by the horns.
