Workforce Talent: Job Seeker Survey

Workforce Talent: Job Seeker Survey

What’s on the mind of today’s job seekers? Are they satisfied with their current job? Or are they poised to find new opportunities?

These questions are more pertinent than ever, as the US job market gains momentum and employers are increasingly challenged to compete for top talent.

In response, Monster conducted a survey of nearly 6,000 registered Monster users for their insights on the current job market.

The survey found that nearly one-half (42%) of employed job seekers are dissatisfied with their current job, with a surprising majority (81%) of employed respondents saying they expected to actively search for a new job in the next year.

“Our survey revealed that an overwhelming number of job seekers are in search of a more fulfilling job experience,” said Jeffrey Quinn, Vice President of Monster’s Global Insights.

These findings are included in Monster’s 24-page report, Workforce Talent: Job Seeker Survey, along with these survey results:
  • Current job seeker challenges
  • Factors that motivate job seekers toward a career change
  • Their level of confidence in finding a job
  • The job outlook for eleven key occupations
Find out how job seekers view the current job market and what factors will motivate their career decisions in the months and years ahead.

Survey Methodology: Monster’s study surveyed nearly 6,000 job seekers who are currently employed or desire employment in the next 12 months via an online survey. The study was designed to be inclusive of all Monster job seekers who have actively used their My Monster account over the past 3 years. The survey ran from January 14, 2013 to February 18, 2013.
