As the job market moves in a positive direction, workers are feeling more confident about job prospects and are pursuing new opportunities, according to CareerBuilder’s Q4 2012 Job Forecast. The study found that 18 percent of hiring managers had top performers leave their organizations in Q3 2012. In comparison, 26 percent of workers said they plan to change jobs in the next 12 months.
The top five positions companies cited for having the most
turnover in their organizations this year include:
- Sales Representative
- Administrative Assistant
- IT Manager/Network Administrator
- Customer Service Representative
With increased worker movement in the marketplace, the competition for talent is becoming more intense. Half (50 percent) of employers who extended a job offer in the last year reported that a candidate rejected the offer.They primarily attribute the rejection to candidates taking another job offer — meaning another company may have had a stronger employment brand reputation — or their organization was not able to meet desired salary.
