    I am talking about why people consider changing jobs not reason for the retrenchment. Some people will consider switching job if they can find one that is 30 min. from home rather than 3 hours. The traveling time & costs really add up and take a toll on the person especially if this is a junior position.

    people elect to change jobs because there is usually a salary increase associated with the job change to reflect the "pull" factor.

    Ya, a job is a job. i agree! When i completed my 24mths term, i handed in my resignation letter but letter was rejected. When i was firm with my decision, then my company not happy with me already..

    i think they feel that i wasted their time training me.. (thou they didn't really train me), just give me a lot of projects to do only.. i had to figure out things myself.. They then make things difficult for me. Then finally i had to post them my resignation letter.. no choice..

    When people need u, they nice to u. When don't need u already, they show u another side of their face already..

    Ah, true but looking at the value this person brings with them may be worth the cost... It's up to the people who make the decisions to look at this and evaluate if they are worth it, not just based on salary. (but i think that's what you partly mentioned in one of the above posts).
