If you could switch jobs, what new job would you choose?
When it comes to jobs, could it be that we’re pretty much resistant to change? That’s probably not so surprising in this day and age and with our economy being what it is. So there could be one rule to follow: If you’ve got a job, keep it.
Xoom conducted an exclusive survey of its customers recently, asking this question: “If you could switch jobs, what new job would you choose?” Think about that one. Xoom, the global money transfer company, discovered that almost half of the respondents in the survey simply said that they wouldn’t change jobs at all – 45 percent.
Of course, not everyone agreed, because it sure would be unusual if everyone did. Some 12 percent of the people in the Xoom survey said if they could choose a new job, that job would be a businessman or entrepreneur. Another popular survey answer was nurse, which eight percent chose. Seven percent said doctor/dentist, four percent said computer engineer and three percent chose lawyer.
And a full 20 percent of the respondents in the Xoom survey said they would select something else entirely different if they were to choose a new occupation. What? No one selected millionaire?
