What Job Seekers Want:

Occupation Satisfaction & Desirability Report

Indeed Hiring Lab Report March 2014

How do people begin their search for a new opportunity in today’s job market? What types of jobs are most desirable to employed candidates? What factors influence a person’s decision to change jobs? In short, what do job seekers want?

The answers in What Job Seekers Want provide a forward-looking view of the labor market with information that employers can use to more effectively compete for new talent, and just as importantly, retain existing employees.

  • Who wants to change occupations, and who wants to stay
  • The role of salary in talent attraction and retention
  • Talent supply vs. hiring demand

This in-depth research is the first study of its kind, using aggregated, anonymous data from 430,000 currently employed job seekers on Indeed. Download the report now for the full findings.
