Job Hopping Millennials


By KMVT News

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) New studies are showing the millennial generation is job hopping more than their parents did, but their values remain the same.

A recent study by the Department of Labor shows the average 25-year-old has already worked 6.3 jobs, slightly more than the baby boomer generation with 5.5 jobs.

University of Idaho student Stephanie Claar says she has already held eight jobs, and the experiences have helped her become more flexible.

Claar says, “It made me learn how to work for different kinds of people and in different environments and balance two different responsibilities. Like becoming a parent or balancing time with friends or family and bigger jobs, more hours."

Some people credit the increase in job hopping to online job services such as Monster or Career Builder.

Numbers also fluctuate between people who graduated before and after the recession.
