The pandemic gave many of us a unique opportunity for self-reflection and introspection.
The result: Many Americans reevaluated their job and career strategy.
A term first coined in 2019, some pundits began calling this “The Great Resignation,” referring to a great voluntary mass exodus from the workforce.
According to the Department of Labor a total of 11.5 million Americans quit their job in April, May, and June 2021 (1). A survey by Bankrate.com found that 55% of Americans planned to look for a new job in 2022 (2) . As of now, it appears “The Great Resignation” isn’t showing any signs of stopping, with over 46 million Americans leaving their jobs on 2022 (3).
