Career Switch on your mind? This is for you. Monster in the Philippines has launched the I Made The Switch (#IMadeTheSwitch) campaign to examine and raise awareness on issues around career transitioning in Southeast Asia. The #IMadeTheSwitch campaign also aims to identify these issues for employers, who might want to understand why employees would consider changing careers, and how they can retain their workforce.
#IMadeTheSwitch campaign is backed by a Monster study that surveyed more than 2400 respondents across Southeast Asia. The study was released to the media (click here for the press release), which was covered in the leading media publications such as ABC-CBN News and Business Mirror among others.
