Job Searching Is Routine for 69%

October 10 2012

Sixty-nine percent of full-time workers reported that regularly searching for new jobs is part of their routine and 30 percent conduct job searches on a weekly basis, according to a new study by CareerBuilder and Inavero.

“Digital behavior has blurred the distinction between an active and a passive job candidate,” said Brent Rasmussen, president of CareerBuilder North America. “The majority of workers are regularly exposed to new job opportunities and are willing to consider them. They may not leave their jobs right away, but they’re keeping aware of possibilities and planning for their next career move.”

Millennials are more fickle; 79 percent actively search for or are open to new jobs and they typically stay in a job for three years, while 67 percent of baby boomers job hunt and they stay in a position for 11 years on average.

Most workers find new employment through online searching (74 percent), traditional networking (68 percent) and job boards (67 percent).

The survey included 1,078 full-time workers across industries and company sizes in the United States and Canada.
