For high demand candidates, the unemployment rate is so low there is no reason for them to apply for a job, since some recruiter is likely contacting them first. However, too many of these “passive” candidates play it too safe, and don’t fully consider the opportunities that are available when called. Their focus is often too short term, emphasizing compensation and security over personal growth and development. Few of these people appreciate that there is significant risk associated with staying in a job where they’re not growing. In fact, the risk associated with stagnation and the loss of future job growth could be greater than the risk of changing jobs. That’s why quitting for the right reasons helps everyone by increasing churn.
