The Amply Edit: The burnout gap, interview feedback and Fintech in demand

Week on week, our Amply network is expanding: check out the news we announced yesterday – and Jobbio have teamed up to create an exclusive job board, enabling a seamless recruitment platform, featuring a list of jobs curated for the community. 

We’ve also been busy this week publishing premium content across our partners. Asking for feedback from an interview can be a bit of an “ick” – but we’ve got you covered. We also look at how diversity and inclusion initiatives are changing and we examine burnout, which has gotten progressively worse over the course of the pandemic.

The Amply EditIs The Burnout Gap Widening?

It’s getting worse: a 2022 survey of more than 500 professionals in Canada by business consulting firm Robert Half reported that 38% of respondents said they are more burned out now than a year ago, reports Jobbio contributor Amanda Kavanagh on Canadian Investor.

Unsurprisingly, the pandemic was tough on employees at all levels, but recent reports show widening gaps have been developing since it began. People and project managers reported higher levels of burnout in 2021 than during the pandemic’s peak in 2020. And only one in four managers strongly agreed that they are able to maintain a healthy balance between work and personal commitments in 2021. Reports of diagnosed depression have also increased.

How To Ask For Feedback From A Job Interview

There’s no point in sugar coating it: Interviewing for a new job is exhausting, writes Amply’s Publishing Director Rosaleen McMeel on CityAM. If you’re applying for multiple roles at the same time chances are you’ll experience interview fatigue at some point during the process. At mid-to-senior levels any interview requires extensive research and preparation, not to mention CV rewrites and presentation preparation.

She has extensive advice: Treat multiple interviews as a learning opportunity. After every one, review the session to build confidence and reduce any potential discouragement. Take notes and consider what went well, in your opinion, and areas that you may have been weaker so you can improve your performance in the next round or second interview.
