Hate Your Job? Pack it up, Pack it in – It’s Time to Head Out West
Monster and Brandwatch announced on June 10 the results of a year-long social media study of more than 1.1 million tweets in the U.S. analyzing exactly who, what, when, where and why people take to Twitter to discuss how they feel about their jobs.
“It’s certainly not just the weather nor differences in temperament that drove the disparity between people in the east hating their jobs and people in the west loving them,” said Joanie Courtney, senior vice president, global market insights at Monster. “Job satisfaction is an often fluid, temporary sensation, and social channels deliver people the opportunity to express those sentiments with greater ease than ever before. The results indicate an opportunity for companies to focus on embracing existing talent to move the ‘love-hate needle,’ as well as those Tweeting to translate their skills for new opportunities to find something better.” See the full release to learn which parts of the country like their jobs the most, and why.
