Finding a new job gains steam as a New Year’s resolution

JTN: On Christmas Day alone, the average American consumes 5450 calories, more than twice the daily recommended intake. So it comes as no surprise that the world’s most popular New Year’s resolution involves weight loss, closely followed by eating cleaner, and exercising more frequently. 

In the United States, specifically, other popular resolutions involve personal improvement and happiness, a desire to travel more frequently (no doubt fueled by the pandemic lockdowns of 2020 and 2021), the improvement of relationships, be they romantic or otherwise, and a goal to enter therapy

But millions of Americans, it seems, also plan on securing a new job over the next twelve months. As the writer and researcher Chris Melore recently noted, citing a survey conducted by market research company OnePoll, a quarter of Americans may find themselves in new jobs in 2023.

One-third of the survey’s 2,000 respondents said they were likely to look for a new job within the same sector that they currently operate in. Roughly a quarter of respondents, however, said they were looking for a complete change of career.

Melore added that the average American “is willing to put themselves through two years of education to make a career switch,” with 24% of respondents saying they would be willing to spend more than three years improving their skills. MORE

  1. On the bright side, these folks at least understand the purpose of a job and the necessity to have one, no small thing considering the percentage who think actual work is beneath them and expect the government to provide for their needs.

  2. There are a lot of seekers out there, looking for anything that will give them purpose. One of my goals is to find as many as I can and tell them about the purpose Jesus has for them. 🙂
