New Year, New Job?
from the time-to-look dept
According to a new study from CareerBuilder.com (who, let’s face it, has a reason to be a bit biased in such studies), 35% of workers they surveyed plan to look for a new job next year. It seems plenty of people hate their current job. They don’t think there’s much advancement opportunity, they’re not paid enough, there’s no job security, and they’re under too much stress. Of course, with the economy the way it is, these findings aren’t surprising. What will be a lot more interesting is to see how many people actually follow through on such a plan. I know many people who are dissatisfied with their current jobs, and say they’re going to change, but very few of them actually go through with it. It’s difficult to find a job these days, and most people realize that what they hate about their current job, they’re likely to hate about their new job as well. Besides, these days, just having a job seems like job security to many.
