Is it true that “the more frequent your job switching is, the higher the pay you can get?”

According to our survey, job switching may help you receive a better salary increment, but there is an optimal frequency of such moves.

Among the 483 respondents who started their first full-time jobs as early as 2009, those who never change jobs will only see a 6% annual pay rise on average. Conversely, those who changed jobs after 2009 received an over 11% annual pay rise on average. However, people who changed jobs at least five times during the same period would receive a less-than-average annual pay rise when compared with those who changed jobs three to four times.

Therefore, the saying that “You’ve got to jump to be successful!” holds some truth.

How many people resigned before securing a new job? Why?

In the past 12 months, over 1/3 of the workforce resigned before securing a new job because:

54%
they could not wait to leave their previous jobs
34%
they had confidence in getting a new job soon
29%
they had a vacation planned between jobs
