Job changing in this changing world

January 26, 2016

With some 320 LinkedIn connections – by no means a large amount, but still enough to create a good sample size – LinkedIn tells me in an email earlier today that 21% of them changed their jobs in 2015 (as did I).

That’s as good an indication as any of how highly mobile the current workforce is here in Australia, where a majority of my connections live. This is especially so, given that many of my connections are significantly advanced in their professional careers, a number are self-employed and some are retired from the workforce; thus many of them are not as likely to change jobs as people early in the careers.
