Young Chinese only stay in first company for 7 months: LinkedIn survey
A young woman was inquiring about a job opening in Huaian, Jiangsu province.[IC]
A new study finds Chinese workers aged under 23 quit their jobs sooner than previous generations.
A statistical analysis of the public files of 150,000 users by LinkedIn, a social media platform for employees, says that employees in China born after 1995, stayed in their first job for just seven months.
The survey says those born in the 1970s stayed over four years, while those born in the 1980s stayed for three-and-a-half years. For post-90s, it was down to 19 months.
To find out why this is happening and how to look at this phenomenon, Ryan Price and Li Ningjing, hosts of Studio+, spoke to Robert Parkinson, Founder and CEO of RMG Selection, a leading Asia-focused executive search business.
