The First Professional Job-Change Determinants
Economics
(Bachelor’s programme)
2018
The purpose of this study was to identify the first professional job-change determinants, as well as to determine the directions and the degree of the factors influence.

The study was based on data obtained by the survey of 723 people, 202 of whom are currently working at their first professional work place. The processing and analysis of the gained data contributed to the construction of the best binary logistic regression model. The model reflects the influence of various determinants on the increase in the probability of a transition from a state of reluctance to change the sphere and the company to the state of intention to change the company and, possibly, a sphere with active searching, namely: monitoring of vacancies in the labor market, completing stages of selection, etc.

The analysis of the model showed its adequacy, high quality and great predictive power, which allowed to speak about the significance of the obtained conclusions of the model and their practical applicability.

Regression analysis showed that the desire to change the first professional job is highly influenced by the gap between the interesting and boring work, the percentage of negatively regarded working hours, the desired freedom, the presence of higher education, the increase in salary, contract hours, undesired work and length of the employment, which confirmed six of the eight hypotheses that were put forward.

The results of the research can be widely used by companies to build strategies to retain the necessary workers, reduce turnover and the loss of talented staff that will positively affect the minimization of their costs and will lead to increase in profit.
