As part of a recent Poocho study aimed at Unpacking the Great Resignation, I spoke to professionals who switched jobs during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. The interviews focussed on understanding their motivations and considerations for a job change, challenges they faced, and expectations and experiences at their new job. I spoke to Kinnari*, a young IT professional serving her notice period at a multinational IT services and consulting company. Kinnari’s experiences with HR teams and recruiters highlighted some of the inherent challenges and roadblocks in current HR policies in large organisations. It also brought out interesting perspectives on a young Millennial’s view of work and career, especially relevant in what seems like the beginning of a long winter.
