Work-life balance is number-one reason, followed by better compensation
More than two-thirds (68 per cent) of workers would consider changing careers, according to a survey by FlexJobs.
While money (50 per cent) is a huge consideration for the move, the number one reason is to be in a job or field with a better work-life balance (56 per cent).
Others would do it because they want a more meaningful or fulfilling career (49 per cent) or to expand their professional skill set (43 per cent).
“Transitioning to a different career is a challenging undertaking, but if you're doing it for the right reasons, it can be a wonderful decision full of professional rewards,” says Brie Reynolds, career development manager and coach at FlexJobs.
