Job Action Day

Job Action Day is a holiday that’s observed annually on the first Monday in November and encourages people to explore their career options. The job market is continuously changing, so it’s always a good idea for workers to keep all of their options in front of them at all times.

This is especially true if a person isn’t feeling the personal satisfaction from their current job that they would like to have. If the worker keeps their skills up to date and keeps all of their options open, then there’s no reason why they have to feel mired down in their current job. This is why this holiday is important for everyone to celebrate when it comes around each year.

The History Of Job Action Day

This holiday was founded back in 2008 by Quintcareers. They created this holiday to encourage people to keep their career options open. This holiday is currently under the sponsorship of LiveCareer and has been for the last few years.
