According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average person stays at one job for 4.6 years. However, the numbers show that for younger people, the average time is 3.2 years, but for people over the age of 65, the average is 10.3 years. Millennials are staying at jobs for shorter periods of time than older generations used to. It’s not uncommon to switch jobs every two-three years. In fact, this is what job recruiters look for on resumes.
Where do you stand? Have you ever worked for one employer continuously for 20 years or more? If you answer yes, will you tell us what you do (or did) as a profession in the comments below the poll? We’d like to know. Thanks!
