Seventy-four percent of people are actively searching for a new job or are open to new opportunities, according to a study by CareerBuilder.
“The majority of workers are regularly exposed to new job opportunities and are willing to consider them," Brent Rasmussen, president of CareerBuilder North America, said in a press release. "They may not leave their jobs right away, but they’re keeping aware of possibilities and planning for their next career move.”
Eighty-three percent of millenials are willing to change their current work situation, 25 percentage points higher than baby boomers, according to CareerBuilder.
Of the people who are new to a job, 35 percent begin job hunting within a couple of weeks of starting, according to CareerBuilder.
Increasing digital awareness allows job seekers to “shop around” more for a better job, which has led to more job-hopping early on in a career, according to the report.
