Summary

In the U.S. work force, job mobility has become the standard employment pattern. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 10% of the work force switches jobs every year. Among the factors contributing to the career mobility of today's workers are the following: search for competitive employment positions; pursuit of a good career match; desire for career advancement; and search for personal satisfaction. Whether career mobility is initiated by the employer because the tasks, skills, or characteristics of given workers are no longer needed or by workers because they are dissatisfied with some aspect of their jobs or organizations, connecting with new employment can be unsettling. The following are some ways workers can use career mobility to capitalize on opportunities in the workplace: have a positive attitude; develop new skills and competencies; engage in career exploration; be willing to compromise; seek career counseling; and be creative. Career mobility is a trend that is likely to continue as workers assume more responsibility for their career development and advancement. (Contains 14 references.) (MN)
