I just got an email from LinkedIn today saying that 16% of my friends had changed jobs in the first half of the year. Does that seem high? Or normal, considering most of my friends are in their mid-late twenties or early thirties? Did everybody on LinkedIn get this email today? I’d be interested to see what others’ numbers are like. — Jon C.
I’ve turned off my LinkedIn notifications, but I’ve thought about how many of my friends have changed jobs this year, and it’s a good number! My friends are also in their late 20s and early 30s, and have either left their current jobs for better positions elsewhere, or have now decided to change careers. What have you guys been seeing among people you know?
