Surfing For A New Job… On The Job

from the take-that dept

It turns out that many people are surfing internet job boards for new jobs… while they’re at work. Though, the article talks to two different job sites, who suggest two totally different things about when people surf for jobs, both of them do mention times that are working hours. One site says people log on in the afternoon around 2 or 3 (gotta do something to ward off the after-lunch food coma), while the other says people log on Monday morning when they can’t believe they’re starting yet another week at their crappy job. The article suggests (but doesn’t really back up) that these people logging on are responding to being treated badly at work, and thus point out that employers should be nicer to their employees or they’ll immediately go surfing for a new job. While I agree that (generally speaking) employers should be nice to their employees, the article doesn’t really do a good job showing the connection between being treated badly and surfing for a new job.
