SACRAMENTO, Calif. — "It was a lot of rejection, I applied for multiple jobs and no one got back to me," Gabrielle Orr from Sacramento explained.
Orr's phone should be ringing off the hook since resignations are at a record high, up 13% over pre-pandemic. Couple that with a surge of retirements, and 10 million jobs opening nationwide according to the Washington Post.
Finding a job should be easy for folks like Gabrielle but her resume may be one of many sitting on top of the employer's desk.
A new survey finds that 55% of the workforce are likely to search for a new job with flexibility, higher pay, and job security on the top of the list when it comes to their next career.
Michelle Clanton with Chartwell Staffing Solutions says temp work might be the perfect option for you.
"It may not be what you want to do right now, or your dream job, but we can keep money going into the home or help you find a new career path, explained Clanton. "After filling out your paperwork, you can on average, get a text with your new job information within 48 hours and get paid every Friday."
"One day, I had an interview, and the next day I had a job. As long as you're working hard and putting your heart into it, things will go well for you," Orr said.
