This time of year, many people assume the motto, “New year, new job.”
In fact, a fifth (22%) of the 3,411 employees surveyed by CareerBuilder said their top resolution for 2017 is to leave their current job and find a new one.
Among younger workers, the number is even higher. About 35% of those between the ages of 18 and 34 expect to have a new job by the end of 2017.
The CareerBuilder survey, conducted online by Harris Poll, reveals the top five New Year’s resolutions among workers this year, aside from landing a new job. Here they are, along with some useful links to articles that can help you achieve these goals:
Almost half (49%) of respondents plan to put more of their paycheck into savings this year.
About a third (38%) want to decrease their stress levels in 2017.
Another third (30%) would like to move a step up on the ladder over the next 12 months.
More than a quarter (28%) plan to consume less junk food at the office.
Just over a half (26%) resolve to take more courses, training, or seminars in 2017.
