43.7% of participants indicated that they were looking for a new job for "more money," while 33.3% indicated that they were "recently laid off." However, 4.9% of percipients responded that they wanted "a better commute," 3.9% wanted "fewer hours," and 14.4% believes their "boss is a jerk."
From the data, it appears there are a myriad of reasons why Job.com visitors are looking for a new job. However, the majority of Job.com visitors are actually looking to find a better job.
