IELTS Writing Task 2

China 2018-06-30 (compared with 20180607)




An increasing number of people are choosing to change their careers during their working lives, and some even do so more than once. What do you think are the reasons for this? Is this a positive or negative development for society?



Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.





It is clear that people today are likely to hold more jobs over their lifetimes than their  grandparents did. Statistics show a jump in job-hopping, and that trend seems to be accelerating particularly in certain industries. Why people go job-hopping, and is it good or bad for individuals and society?



Many individuals switch jobs and there is nothing wrong with doing so, but the reasons for moving from job to job must make sense. In a positive sense, changing jobs can be a good thing if job-hoppers get the opportunity to gain new skills and experiences. For those in the IT field, for example, a new environment can provide a chance to learn new technologies that their former companies were not using. As a way of demonstrating ambition, moving to a new job can also  be an opportunity to advance their careers and better salaries. In a negative sense, however, it may suggest that an individual is unable to stick with one job for a decent amount of time, maybe through impatience or a lack of loyalty. That said, to do justice to job-hopping, there is no better reason to change their careers than the reality that the working world is changing fast, even for individuals who stay in the same job.



In the context of society, the job-hopping trend has dramatically become the new norm with the rise of the new working generation. Interestingly, for instance, recruitment managers are now wondering whether to avoid or embrace job-hoppers when disadvantages and advantages are mixed. Clearly, this trend has gathered momentum over the years, with each generation hopping more than the one before it. In the society of the past, it was common for people to work for the same employer for their entire career lives, and job-hoppers were then viewed as unreliable, lacking commitment and responsibility. However, these days careers are more fluid, and it has become more socially acceptable—if not expected—to move from job to job, especially with young people who appear to be more prone to immediate gratification and the need for rapid advancement in social status.



As a conclusion, there seems to be no right or wrong answer as to whether or not job-hopping is a good or bad thing for individuals as well as for society. One thing is sure: the trend is expected to continue in certain employment areas. In general, people today have longer CVs than their grandparents had during their working lifetimes, respectively.
