Alma Media: Monster’s survey: Most Finns want a new job

MONSTER OY                PRESS RELEASE               11 Oct 2007
A survey conducted by Monster reveals that Finnish employees are dissatisfied with their present careers and are planning re-education. Monster is Finland’s most popular online recruitment meeting point on the Internet.
Visitors to the website were asked in September 2007, “Have you ever considered a new career?” The response “Yes, I am presently contemplating re-education” was chosen by 70 per cent of more than a thousand respondents.
This enthusiasm for a career change and re-education can also be seen in the growing demand for adult education, due to both the appreciation for education and the existing multitude of re-education opportunities.
“This autumn we have had xxx new adult students, some xx per cent of whom are re-educating themselves for a totally new career”, says FIRSTNAME LASTNAME, JOB TITLE, Adult Education Centre Adulta.
“The majority of people who enrol in adult education programmes have a very high motivation level, because returning to school means an opportunity to make major changes in their lives. It is great that people have a positive attitude to career change and adult education in general these days”, MR/MS LASTNAME points out.
The Monster survey results are based on the response from website visitors between 4 and 18 September, 2007. The survey was taken by
1,049 [permanently?] employed people from all parts of Finland. The responses divided as follows:
70%              Yes, I am presently contemplating re-education
13%              Yes, but not within the next few years
8%                No, I like my present career
7%                No, a total change takes too much time/trouble
