Would it surprise you to learn 21% of Americans plan to change jobs in 2014? Not if you read the survey posted by CareerBuilder in January. That’s up from 17% in 2013.
The survey shared that just 59% of employees are satisfied with their jobs, compared to 66% in 2013. The largest reason for dissatisfaction? Salary and not feeling valued.
If you fall under this category, making a decision is tough. Should you try something completely different? Should you stay in your industry but look at a different employer? Should you return to school to complete a degree? Obtain another degree?
Having worked in the recruitment business for more than 20 years, I’ve always said career fairs are the most under-utilized opportunities for those seeking a new job. Where else can you find so many different companies and schools under one roof?
I wrote a post last fall about how to approach career fairs to insure you make the most of them. Meanwhile, mark your calendars and plan to attend at least a few of these:
