Spark Trader Limited reports：
It is about to enter the annual peak period of job-hopping .
Those migrant workers who are hopeless to get promoted, whose salary increases are not approved, cannot integrate into the company culture, are dissatisfied with the current situation of their work, and have reached an inflection point in their career plans, are now gearing up and eager to try, making small moves under their desks, hoping to pass Job-hopping to achieve another take-off in the workplace.
Frequently used mobile phone software, minimized desktop web pages, and repeatedly answered numbers in call logs are all flags of recruitment companies and headhunters .
But when we are busy hunting for treasure, a difficult problem stands in front of us:
Which one will come first, a good job or a year-end bonus?
The best result is of course to receive the year-end award, smoothly handover the job, seamlessly connect to the new company, and then get promoted and raise the salary, marry Bai Fumei, and move to the pinnacle of life.
But what if you find a good job before the end of the year award is issued?
A good job waits for no one, and the year-end bonus cannot be approved in advance.
What should we do with the rewards of one year of hard work and the rare job opportunities ?
Leave early, leave late
Each company’s year-end bonus is issued at a different time:
Some companies will choose to issue year-end awards before the New Year’s Eve, that is, in December of each year.
Of course, there is no need to consider this situation. After winning the year-end bonus and then hopping, the process is smoother than Dove.
Some companies will choose to issue year-end bonuses before the Spring Festival holiday, usually in January to February each year.
If the company issues the year-end bonus later than the entry time required by the new job, it is necessary to comprehensively consider the weight of the year-end bonus and the specific salary and benefits of the new job, and we will talk about it later.
Finally, there is another type of company where the year-end bonus will be issued after the year, that is, from March to May each year.
In this case, if you get the year-end bonus and then quit, you will miss the hot season of recruitment at the beginning of the year. When a good company is full of people, you will probably have to give second place when you want to quit.
Bonus composition = basis for selection
Depending on the size, nature, and position of the company, the composition of the year-end bonus for each worker is different.
The simplest year-end bonus is a few more months of salary, such as 13-14 salary per year .
If the amount does not have a major impact on your current economic situation, you can consider giving up the year-end bonus and rushing to the embrace of the new company.
However, some companies’ year-end bonus components are more complicated. Not only do they have year-end bonuses, they also include part of their daily performance.
At this time, the amount of the year-end bonus may reach more than 30% of your annual income.
If you don’t take it at this time, when will you wait?
Is the new job worth it?
Since most companies will choose to issue year-end awards before the New Year, if there is a conflict with the new company you are quitting, there is a high probability that your new offer will have been issued between November and December.
At this time, whether to give up the year-end bonus, in addition to looking at the share of the year-end bonus, there is one more important thing:
That is, how good the new job is.
For example, what can the new company offer you?
Higher salary? More resources to support? Higher position? A bigger platform? An opportunity to form a personal team? Better benefits? More suitable for your company culture?
Or can it make your resume look better and become a gorgeous springboard for your next job-hopping?
No matter which one it is, you can compare it with the year-end bonus.
If the new company offers good opportunities, a strong platform, a large salary increase, and sufficient development opportunities to make you yearn for it, why bother holding a small year-end award?
But if the new job is just a slight increase in salary, why bother for a job where the gap is not too big and give up the upcoming year-end bonus?
