2016 might be the year of the job-hopper, according to a new study from employment site CareerBuilder. A survey among 3,300 jobholders across the country found that 21 percent of employees are seriously considering changing jobs next year. This is a five percentage points increase compared to a similar survey conducted at the end of 2014. Workers between 18 and 34 hold the most chances of leaving their current jobs, as 30 percent of them plan to do so by the end of 2016.
The authors of the survey say that these results don’t necessarily mean that U.S. employees are not satisfied with their jobs. It’s just that the variety of opportunities in terms of employment determines them to keep looking even if they like their current place of work. The survey indicated that about 34 percent of workers are regularly searching for job opportunities. Other studies conducted earlier this year estimated that about 58 percent, and respectively 51 percent of U.S. adults are looking for a new job on regular basis.
