Many say they’d apply at other companies before leaving

javier-molina-185935-unsplash-973539-editedMost employees feel you don’t have to quit to look for a new job — according to a recent survey that found 78 percent of workers are at least somewhat comfortable searching for a job while employed.

Only 6 percent said they’d be very uncomfortable looking for a new job while still employed.

Employees don’t always limit their job search activities to after-hours. More than six in 10 (64 percent) indicated they’d look for a new job during the workday.

Professionals ages 18 to 34 are the most open to conducting job search activities at work (72 percent), compared to those ages 35 to 54 (63 percent) and 55 and older (46 percent). Men (72 percent) are more likely to look for a new job during the workday than women (55 percent).
