Almost everyone who is offered a cancellation contract is standing in front of this question. And now the riddle goes: Should I take the money and save it up for a rainy day? You never have too much money. Or does it perhaps even make more sense to be consulted in the application process? After all, you've been out of practice for some time and you do not know what is expected. Maybe you'll make the wrong decision and regret later on having accepted the higher compensation payment ...
Let's take a look at it: If you have applied regularly, there is a chance that you will have enough experience to apply successfully. However, not many employees, especially long-term employees, apply in regular intervals. Of cause, they didn´t have a reason to apply. Be happy, you probably had a good time at your workplace. The disadvantage is that you have "slept through" the development in the application procedure and today's requirements.
In contrast the Eriksson & Associates consultants daily deal with application expectations and they also regularly get feedback from the personnel departments. They also study surveys and keep an eye on the personnel market. So they can ensure a consultation that is state-of-the-art and bring you up to date by intensive coaching.
So if you do not want to risk that the apparent increase in money will not be "wasted" by lengthy job search, then you should trustfully get in contact with one of our consultants. It is very likely that the job search will be considerably shorter and, above all, successful instead of trying alone. Your consultant has a big advantage: He knows how it works!
