55% of Americans expect to search for new job


The coronaviru­s pandemic massively disrupted Americans’ working lives, and a new Bankrate survey suggests that it’s causing many of them to now re-evaluate what they want out of their careers.

Most Americans (55 percent) who are either employed or looking for a job – what economists would describe as being in the workforce – say they are likely to look for new employment in the next 12 months, according to Bankrate’s August 2021 Job Seeker Survey.

Even more surprising, some 28 percent of working Americans who currently say they’re not looking for a new job are still expecting to search for a different position at some point in the next year.
