- They earn more money. When employees stay with one employer, they can expect a 2%-3% increase each year in most cases. When employees accept new offers from outside their company, they average a salary increase between 10% and 20% (Forbes, 2014).
- They have more current skills. After about three years at a job, research shows that employees start to lose productivity and engagement. Changing jobs more frequently forces workers to stay on top of industry trends, stay current with their education and certifications, and so on. Bottom line: It keeps you competitive.
- They are better at job searching. When you do something more often, you get better at it. This is true for job searching as well. How many people keep their resume updated at all times? Very few. Then when a layoff hits, they’re unprepared and lose valuable time. Staying open to new opportunities and being proactive in your career with frequent resume updates can prevent this.
- They have larger networks. The more companies you work at, the more people you will meet. Leveraging your current and past connections are the most effective way to secure a new opportunity. Employee referrals remain the #1 preferred hiring method by employers.
