Why Change Job

Reasons for Job Change

Summarising the findings of several surveys, the top 7 reasons for changing jobs are:

  1. Poor to no opportunities for learning or developing new competencies and capabilities.
  2. Bad management
  3. Toxic workplace / company culture
  4. Lack of promotion
  5. Too much or too little work to do
  6. More money and stability
  7. Inadequate rewards and benefits.

However, hiring managers want to be sure you are leaving for the right reasons. They are not impressed by negative comments about your previous workplace or boss. My job application programme includes finding responses that emphasise the positive reasons and frame your move as a path to advancing your career.
