The research also shows that job seekers use an average of about 16 resources throughout each new job search. That’s a lot of resources, and only further proves the idea of today’s consumer candidate. Meanwhile, employers are doing their homework as well, using an average of 15 different resources to find candidates.
What Does This Mean For You?
This might not come as a huge surprise, but a higher base salary is the No. 1 reason candidates are looking for a new job.

With the vast majority of today’s workforce seemingly ready and willing to “jump ship” at a moment’s notice, it’s important for both employers and recruiters to understand what drives these candidates, so that they’re not just attracting them in the short term, but they also have an eye on retaining them in the long term. That means paying closer attention to things such as improved work-life balance, better advancement opportunities and improved benefits.
