A snap survey shows that a massive 68% of employed South Africans are currently looking for a new job.
While only 13% of the respondents polled via Facebook by Careers24 are satisfied with their current jobs and are not looking at the moment, a significant number are looking for positions with higher pay and better titles.
Salary is a key factor motivating South Africans to look for a change in their employment situation. Many South Africans also cite a lack of promotion as a reason for feeling dissatisfied with their current jobs.
"The Facebook findings highlighted a distinct dissatisfaction among South Africans,” says Tim Gregory, GM of Careers24. “While most employees are constantly looking for better opportunities, few actually manage their careers by proactively updating their CVs.”
The Careers24 survey showed that a further 19 percent of South Africans are happy in their jobs but are open to new opportunities.
