Job hopping is on the rise, according to a new report. In fact, workers are changing jobs at a rate of 4.1%, twice that of 10 years ago. The good news is that the job switching rate is lowest in the health services, education, and manufacturing industries.
Among other findings from the survey:
- Workers usually leave their industries when they change jobs, but the rate they jump to other industries has remained fairly consistent in the past decade.
- Employers are increasingly hiring job candidates who already have employment, as well as those who lack credentials previously required.
- More employers are using recruitment strategies that include offering more generous pay and benefits.
- Job hopping is most common in administrative and support services jobs.
