Health Care Staffing: The Top 5 Reasons for Making a Job Change

Posted by Bernie Reifkind on February 8, 2012

As you probably know, I’ve been around the block a time or two. 

I have been in the health care staffing industry for a long time and I have garnered my share of wisdom along the way.  In the dictionary wisdom is defined as:

1 a : accumulated philosophic or scientific learning : knowledge b : ability to discern inner qualities and relationships : insight c : good sense : judgment d : generally accepted belief <challenges what has become accepted wisdom among many historians — Robert Darnton>
2 : a wise attitude, belief, or course of action
3 : the teachings of the ancient wise men

Wisdom prevails if you are aware of it.

With the wisdom that I have learned here are the top 5 reasons that most people make a job change:

1. their boss

2. their boss

3. their boss

4. their boss

5. their boss

Now obviously some of this is “tongue in cheek”  but serioulsy, it’s about who you work for and how you are treated in the health care industry.  Making a job change for money alone can be a dangerous proposition.  We make job changes to better our lives and of course money is a huge factor in that decision.

However the main reason why most people change jobs or stay: their boss.
