Did you resolve to quit your unfulfilling, monotonous, I’m-only-doing-this-to-pay-my-rent job in 2016? You’re not alone. In 2015, the number of people quitting their jobs reached a 6 year high, and the U.S. economy continued to pick up steam as employers added 2.65 million jobs.
Millennials were even more likely to quit than their Gen X and Baby Boomer counterparts, with around 60% of young workers quitting jobs within 3 years of being hired.
So, if you’re among the 53.5 million Millennials in today’s workforce, chances are good that you’re either passively or actively looking for new opportunities this year. Whether you’re ready to make a change today, or are thinking about your options down the road, follow these rules for a more fruitful job search.
