Survey: More than half of US workforce will look for new jobs in next 12 months

Jobseekers want flexible work arrangements and higher pay.

INDIANAPOLIS — New data shows more than half of the country's workforce will look for a new job in the next year.

So What's the Deal?

The numbers come from a Bankrate.com survey and it shows the top thing jobseekers want is flexible work arrangements. Higher pay is just behind that, followed by job security.

Employers are desperate for workers right now, boosting starting pay and offering signing bonuses.

Data from the Department of Labor data shows there are roughly 10.1 million openings right now, but the number of unemployed people is 8.7 million.

This means prospective employees have the upper hand.

In addition to pay, ask what else the company can offer you to chip away at monthly costs.
