This generation’s job market is totally different from your grandparents job market. The era of employment for life is OVER and at some point, you will find yourself looking for the next employment opportunity.
Workers now migrate from job to job over their career in search of greater fulfillment and compensation. Some other reasons include Higher Pay, Relocation to a Different Geographic Area, Career Advancement, Choosing a Less Stressful Job, Escaping an Incompetent or Negative Boss, Changing Career Focus or Work-Life Balance. According to JobSearch at About.com, “Today, the average person changes jobs ten to fifteen times during his or her career.”
Upgrading one’s employment status has become an ongoing process rather than something you do once or twice during your career. Many workers spend five years or less in every job, so they devote more time and energy transitioning from one job to another.
