Millennials know job hopping looks bad, 86% would still do it

July 22, 2015

Although millennials know job hopping looks bad, they would not hesitate to leave their job, according to the national Millennial Outlook Survey released by RecruitiFi. The survey of millennials found 83% acknowledge that job hopping on their resume has the potential to be negatively perceived by prospective employers, but 86% reported it would not prevent them from pursuing their professional or personal passions.

“The millennial generation continues to be at the forefront of every recruiting and hiring discussion,” said RecruitiFi CEO and co-founder Brin McCagg. “By taking a deep dive into the key drivers behind millennials’ career decisions, the survey findings illustrate that now, more than ever, organizations must evolve to adopt more strategic approaches to HR and talent management.”

Currently, 74% of employees are actively looking for a new job, according to the report, and 69% said searching for new opportunities is part of their “regular routine.” The survey also found 16% would be extremely likely to respond positively to a recruiter, 18% would be very likely to respond positively, and 38% would be somewhat likely to respond positively.

During the course of their professional careers, 53% of millennials surveyed have held three or more jobs. And while 33% plan to stay in their current jobs for three to five years, 20% plan to leave after one to two years.

The online survey included more than 1,000 US full-time millennial employees between the ages of 22 and 35 and was conducted during the month of May 2015.
