The important things to consider when changing jobs around the age of 30 are “increase in salary/annual income” and “job satisfaction.” Voices of “I want to invest in myself” and “I want to work with discretion”
Gakujo Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo) conducted an Internet survey targeting business people over the age of 28. This time, we conducted a survey on “changing jobs around the age of 30”. When changing jobs, the most important thing is “increase in salary/annual income.” This was followed by “rewarding work” and “job content.” “I want to increase my annual income and invest in myself to further improve my skills,” and “In order to enrich my career, I think I need to take on a job that involves thinking about strategy when I’m in my 30s.” It was submitted. The most desired annual income was “5,010,000 yen to 6,000,000 yen” at 30.6%. There is a tendency for people to desire an annual income increase of several hundred thousand yen to one million yen from their current annual income.

*【TOPICS】*
* (1) “Increase in salary/annual income” is the most important thing when changing jobs. Next is “job satisfaction”*
* (2) Most desired annual income is “5,010,000 to 6,000,000 yen”* * (3) About 60% of people think of an acceptable annual income when changing jobs: “I want to increase my annual income even if I work at my ideal company/industry”*

* [Background of the survey] *
*
Lifetime employment is no longer the norm, and there is an increasing number of workers who experience multiple job changes in order to develop their careers through job changes. We conducted a survey of business people aged 28 and over about changing jobs around the age of 30, which is an exaggeration to say that it determines the direction of one’s career. *

* (1) “Increase in salary/annual income” is the most important thing when changing jobs. Next is “job satisfaction”*

The most important thing when changing jobs is “increase in
salary/annual income” at 65.3%. This was followed by “job
satisfaction” at 44.9% and “job content” at 42.9%. “I want to enrich my life by increasing my annual income.” “I want to increase my annual income and invest in myself to further improve my skills.” “In order to enrich your career, think about strategies when you are in your 30s.” “I think I need to take on challenges at work” “I want to work with discretion so that it will lead to my future career” “Once I changed jobs, I lost the discretion I had before changing jobs. We received comments such as “I want to change jobs to an environment where I can work,” and “I want to work in an environment where I can balance my family life by combining telework and going to the office.”

* (2) The most desired annual income is “5,010,000 to 6,000,000 yen”*

The most desired annual income was “5.01 million yen to 6 million yen” at 30.6%. This was followed by “6,010,000 yen to 7,000,000 yen” (26.5%). The most common annual income desired by businesspeople with a current annual income of 4,010,000 to 5,000,000 yen is 5,010,000 to 6,000,000 yen. Among business people with a current annual income of “5.01 million yen to 6 million yen,” the most common desired annual income is “5.01 million yen to 6 million yen” and “6 million yen to 7 million yen.” It turns out that many people want to increase their annual income by several hundred thousand yen to one million yen more than their current annual income.

* (3) Approximately 60% of people think of an acceptable annual salary when changing jobs: “I want to increase my annual income even if I work at my ideal company/industry”*

Regarding the idea of ​​an acceptable annual salary when changing jobs, the most common answer at 34.7% was “I want to increase my annual income even if I work at my ideal company/job type.” When combined with 24.5% of respondents who said they would like to have a slightly higher annual income even if they were at their ideal company or job type, approximately 60% of business people said they would like their annual income to be slightly higher even if they were at their ideal company or job type. “I want to change jobs to an environment where my past experience and skills are evaluated.” “I want to maintain my current status at the very least, but if possible, I want to increase my annual income.” “I’m changing jobs to increase my annual income, so I want to change jobs to an environment where my past experience and skills are evaluated.” I want to increase my annual income by 10,000 yen.”
24.5% of respondents answered, “If it’s my ideal company/job type, I don’t mind the same amount as my current salary,” and 16.3% say “If it’s my ideal company/job type, I don’t mind if my annual salary is (slightly) lower.” Businesspeople who said, “I don’t mind a drop in salary” said, “The salary level in the industry I currently work in is high, so I’m expecting a certain reduction in annual income.” “I want to change jobs from sales to back office, so I’m taking this opportunity.” We received comments such as “I do not expect an increase in annual income when changing jobs” and “Even if my annual income temporarily decreases, I would like to change jobs that will be beneficial for my future career.”
