Jobs Are Back. Time to Quit Yours?

The recovery is in full swing, with jobs returning to the market at a faster pace than in prior months.  New unemployment claims are down, job vacancies are up and the unemployment rate is down.  Sounds like the perfect time to quit your job, right?

Believe it or not, more people quit their jobs in the past three months than were laid off.  According to the Department of Labor, nearly 2 million people quit their jobs in April.  Ironically, the increased quits is a sign the job market is improving.  People are feeling confident enough to leave jobs even without lining up their next gig and researchers expect the number of quits to rise as the job market continues to improve, a trend observed after every economic depression and recession.

So, what about you?  Will you stick with your current job or are you already looking?
