- Yes, I am trying to switch my career – 53%
- Maybe, if I can find a better career – 33%
- No, my career is not impacted by economic troubles – 14%
Similar poll results from a year prior show some differences. 2012 respondents in France and UK felt similarly about "maybe" finding a better career with France at 31% in 2012 vs. 34% in 2013 and UK at 29% in 2012 vs. 28% in 2013. However, there was a difference in those who answered no. Only 9% of UK respondents in 2012 answered that their career was not impacted by the economic crisis and therefore they would not change their career vs. 11% in 2013. In 2012, Monster UK respondents were overwhelmingly in agreement about trying to switch careers due to the current economic climate - nearly two-thirds (62%) answered yes. Whereas, in France the number was only at 53% which is still over half of the respondents but significantly lower than UK.The results of the current Monster Global Poll are based on votes cast by Monster visitors from April 29-May 20 2013.
