"Small business hiring is now outpacing that at larger companies. Hiring at businesses with fewer than 200 employees ticked up by 0.4% month-over-month in May, while companies with more than 10,000 workers pared back by 40%."
If you're looking for a job, you might consider looking at smaller shops. There can be advantages: more flexibility, more chance to make a bigger difference. If you have struggled working for large corporations, this could be your ticket!
Here is what you should do right now if this is the path you want to follow:
1. Take a look at your career goals. What is your personal mission? What kinds of project excite you?
2. Research smaller companies and investigate whether their values match your own.
3. Double back through your resume and LinkedIn profile to ensure you are communicating why you are the ideal candidate to hire. Your research should help you by informing you about what companies are looking for.
Taking some time to consider these points, regardless of the size of the company you are targeting, will help you focus your message.
