Poll of the month: terms of employment – October 2015

Nearly a third of Canadian CPAs have been in their current position for more than 10 years, our latest reader survey shows.

Canadian CPAs like to put down roots at work, according to our latest reader survey. Nearly a third of you (32%) have been in your current position — and 44% have been with the same organization — for more than 10 years. Of course, results vary by age. Half of respondents under age 30 have been in their current position for one to three years and 83% have been with their company less than five years, while 86% of those 65+ have been in their current job more than 10 years and 72% have been with the same organization for more than 20 years. Interestingly, 30-somethings have the highest rate of new jobs: 25% have been in their current position for less than a year.
