Over 50% of US Workers Are Thinking About a New Job for the New Year


The New Year is the ideal time for a fresh start—and one resolution that many people typically make going into January is to find a new job.

2016 is no different. In fact, in a recent survey commissioned by Indeed, we found that over 50% of US workers are thinking of making a career change as the New Year gets underway.

Breaking the results down further, we found that 25% of respondents said that finding new work was definitely on their list for 2016, while a further 27% said the same goal was possible.

Motivations vary, but salary is a key factor for many people. In fact, 79% of respondents told us they would be looking for increased wages in 2016. By contrast, 44% said they were interested in a higher position or title. Meanwhile, for 39% a better location is a goal.
