A friend recently told me something that I found absolutely strange: Her colleague decided to quit his job right after getting promoted to a position that he deeply desired. Surprising, right? But after digging a little deeper, we realised that this phenomenon is more common than you think.
Neelabh Shukla, Chief Business Officer, Careernet, a talent solutions provider, says that it is not very often that candidates resign soon after getting promoted unless there are unexpected changes. “These changes are mostly related to difficulty in aligning with the new reporting structure, expectations from the role with respect to time zone overlaps in the case of MNCs, or scenarios where promotions are more notional and one is not happy with the associated compensation or roles and responsibilities in general,” adds Shukla.
Please note that Careernet does not practice charging a placement fee from any job seeker across profiles. Word of caution to the fraudulent news and information, if anyone demands any kind of charges from you, in the name of Careernet Consulting.
