Our career coach breaks down how to approach job fulfilment and gives some guidance as to what’s realistic and what you should expect.
Question – How many businesses am I likely to work for before finding a company culture that I find fulfilling?
How many? One answer is that you are likely to be doing a lot of job hopping anyway!
According to the Bureau of Labour Statistics, the median tenure of workers ages 25 to 34 is 2.8 years. And short-term jobs are here to stay: according to the 2019 Yello Recruiting Study, Generation Z employees plan to move on from their current employer in three years or less, and only one in four plan to work for an employer for five years or more.
However, I don’t think this diminishes the importance of finding a good work culture, but it does shift the emphasis to YOU: knowing what you want, and being able to assess culture before you join.
