Many work­ers look­ing to change jobs in new year

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

The weeks af­ter the Spring Fes­ti­val hol­i­day were ex­pected to see a job-hop­ping frenzy among white-col­lar work­ers.

A sur­vey of more than 21,000 white-col­lar work­ers showed that more than 54 per­cent of the re­spon­dents said they had up­dated their re­sumes and were look­ing for new op­por­tu­ni­ties in the first quar­ter, com­pared with 47.8 per­cent in the first quar­ter of last year, and 29.1 per­cent said they were con­sid­er­ing chang­ing jobs. Only 5.1 per­cent said they didn’t want a new job, ac­cord­ing to Zhaopin.com, an on­line re­cruit­ment agency.

The in­dus­tries with the high­est num­bers of job-hop­pers were real es­tate and en­ergy, in which more than 70 per­cent had al­ready found or wanted a new job, ac­cord­ing to the sur­vey.

The sur­vey also found that the re­spon­dents’ con­fi­dence in ca­reer de­vel­op­ment had reached the low­est level in three years, es­pe­cially for those who work in State-owned en­ter­prises and govern­ment-af­fil­i­ated or­ga­ni­za­tions, due to down­ward pres­sure on the econ­omy.
