The job market is competitive, and with more people than ever applying for the same positions, it can feel like a full-time job to stay ahead of the curve. Now, more and more job seekers are turning to a new strategy called rage applying—the act of submitting dozens of applications in a short period of time—to get the attention of employers. It’s a controversial trend gaining traction in the corporate world, and one everyone should be aware of. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at the ins and outs of rage applying and its implications for job seekers.

What exactly is rage applying?

Rage applying is a new name for a trend that has always existed. However, the term has been gaining popularity through social media platforms, primarily on TikTok. Rage applying allows job seekers to express their frustrations with their current employer, whether about pay, managers, co-workers or feelings of being overlooked and unappreciated. It is becoming a popular way to make a statement in the job market. Different from quiet quitting, which is a passive expression of worker frustration, rage applying is a much more aggressive expression that is done in the hopes of securing a better opportunity.

Common reasons for rage applying

One of the most common reasons people rage apply is due to their current financial situation. Last year, during what many called the Great Resignation, many people left their jobs in search of better pay, better benefits and better work-life balance. For most, an income from a stable job is essential in order to pay bills, save money and achieve other financial goals. Rage applying can be used as a way to quickly find employment if someone is in need of competitive pay.

Rage applying has become popular in the insurance industry due to the rapid growth and ever-changing regulations. Many organizations are continuously hiring new employees to fill these positions and offer competitive salaries. Workers that are leveraging rage applying are doing so as a way to progress their career and move up in the corporate world. Applying for multiple positions gives them the chance to gain experience and create connections which can lead to higher-level positions in the future.

Some other common reasons for rage applying include the potential for better pay and benefits, or to get away from a toxic work environment with little upward mobility.

Find the position right for you

When it comes to rage applying, one of the most detrimental aspects is that it can lead to a series of jobs that don’t fit your personal or professional needs. If you’re ready to look for a new job, it’s best to reach out to an insurance recruiter. An insurance recruiter can help you find the right position that meets your unique needs and aligns with your goals.

Rage applying, just like quiet quitting, can be a band-aid remedy to a deeper problem. Keeping multiple metaphorical pots in the fire can build on the negativity you feel toward your current employer and can lead to feelings of burnout. Instead, try slowing down and evaluating your situation. Focus on yourself and determine what would really be best for your future.
