Are you aged between 50 and 64*? And maybe you realised during the pandemic you were bored in your career, so you took early retirement?
Well according to Andrew Bailey, Governor of The Bank of England (Daily Telegraph on 27th March 2023) the rampant inflation we are experiencing is YOUR fault. Nothing to do with gas and oil prices or the increased shipping costs from China. Nope, it is down to you. So, may I suggest you get online, brush up your CV and start applying for jobs? According the BBC News web site there are six expert tips or finding work:
Search beyond a 40-mile radius (I don’t think so, you are used to staying in bed until 8am now!)
Use key words in your searches, like ‘sales’
Don’t wait for a job to be advertised – apply direct.
Sell your skills, not the time you have done a particular role.
Celebrate the small wins, don’t be disappointed when you get rejected.
If you are successful, you will probably end up in a role doing something like you were doing previously, which was ok because you were neither unhappy or happy and it paid the mortgage. You will probably be managed by someone who still has spots.
Thanks Andrew Bailey, why don’t you do your job like you are supposed to?
