Would you believe that 83% of Americans are at least contemplating looking for a new job in this new year?
That’s a huge number, but it’s etched in stone by Right Management, a Milwaukee career management firm, in its yearly look at whether workers are happy with their jobs.
The number of Americans looking for a new career landing spot has grown in the past few years. In 2009, for example, only 60% of workers said they were mulling a job search. That jumped to 84% in 2010 as the worst of the financial crisis dissipated, and has remained largely at that level for the last three years.
