Most Job Changes on LinkedIn in Europe - August 2019

Scandinavia rules in job hopping!

People change jobs from time to time.

The following table shows us in which European country there were the most job changes over the past 12 months on LinkedIn.

A job change is created on LinkedIn every time a user adds something to their working experience. So when people go from being unemployed to getting a job and vice versa, there is a job change. When people get a promotion or new job title at their current employer, they also create a job change. And of course when people change to another employer.

What’s remarkable in this overview is that the most job changes took place in Scandinavian countries. We have no explanation for that. If you do have an explanation, please leave it in the comments below this post!
