#WorkTrends Recap: Career Jumping – Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

Today’s #WorkTrends show focused on the topic of Career Jumping, what it is, why it happens, how to explore it for yourself, as well as how to retain top talent from making a jump. What an exciting topic! We were joined by Mike Lewis, founder of WhenToJump, a site and community devoted to stories, people, and ideas that help people figure out when to jump.

Some of the things we discussed included:

  • How to retain top talent from “jumping”
  • A discussion on why top talent jump today more than ever before
  • How to explore internal jumps
  • The steps involved in making a successful jump

It was a lively #WorkTrends podcast and Twitter conversation. Participants had a lot to share about the changing perceptions of career-pathing and ideas on how to encourage jumps that satisfy employees, while at the same time preventing talent attrition. Whether you’re intrigued by the topic of Career Jumping, considering making a jump yourself, or trying to figure out how to inspire and motivate your top talent to stick around, this show had a little bit of something for everyone.
