Unstick your career

In a post-pandemic rut? Find out how to “unstick” your career

We’ve all been dealing with a lot – rising inflation, a potential recession, political uncertainty and post-pandemic fatigue, writes Jobbio contributor Aisling O’Toole on FinTech Futures.

She says that while some took advantage of “The Great Resignation” and hot labour market to bag lucrative new roles, others turned their attention elsewhere and unintentionally ended up in a career rut.

So is it too late to make a change? Absolutely not. If you’re worried about your skills or concerned your opportunities for growth have suffered, rest assured you’re not alone. In fact, a recent survey by Prudential found 75% of workers in the same position are worried about their skill set, while 80% are concerned they’ve missed an opportunity for progression.

These are the top 5 EU cities for remote working as a digital nomad

It is not an exaggeration to say that the Covid-19 pandemic changed a lot of things for a lot of people, writes Jobbio’s Senior Content Manager Kirstie McDermott on Euronews. One of the most dramatic changes for anyone working in an office or within the knowledge economy was the fact that the way they worked changed – literally overnight, and the pandemic also saw companies begin to offer full-time remote working as a workplace benefit.

Making the incentives of tech companies even more attractive is the fact that many European countries are launching digital nomad visas to welcome foreign remote workers. When it comes to where the best spots are in the EU for remote working, there are a few ways to cut the cake.

Access to a digital nomad visa is top of the list, but as soaring prices drive a cost of living crisis across much of the bloc, these are factors that need to be taken into consideration too. 

On Euronews, we take a look at five great places to consider.

Here’s when hybrid working really doesn’t work

According to Slack, the business messaging app that “knock knocks” its way through your working day as notifications and DMs land from colleagues across the channels you’re on, 58% of knowledge workers across the UK are now working in hybrid arrangements, with 66%  of those saying it is their preferred work mode, writes Kirstie McDermott on The London Economic.

It is clear hybrid work is a great choice for a lot of people, offering a flexibility that was previously unavailable and bringing more of a work-life balance to the lives of many. Despite that, there are still some drawbacks to consider. She outlines those – and some of them may surprise you – in the feature, which you can read here.
