New Survey Reveals Many Employed Workers Haven’t Job Searched in Years

Job-SearchIt may be time to dust off that resume! That is, you may be in the same boat as nearly half of the people in an Accountemps survey who revealed they haven’t looked for a new job since 2009.

Better yet, 30 percent of survey participants indicated they haven’t looked for a new job since 2004.

The same survey revealed 19 percent of participants really want to job hunt this year and the majority of them expect their search to be challenging.

The numbers tell all — if you’re similar to survey participants, being out of the job search market doesn’t mean you’re less marketable but it does mean you need to brush up some skills to work it. (This reminds me of a couple who is recently divorced as they dip their feet into the dating pool again. The premise hasn’t truly changed but the game sure has been altered thanks to modern technology.) Read more

According to the statistics, only 59 percent of workers indicated they’re satisfied with their jobs. This is a significant drop from last year’s percentage of 66. Digging deeper, people claiming dissatisfaction pointed to salary concerns and not feeling valued as the top two reasons. Read more
