Right now, many of us are sitting at our desks for our current job quietly hunting for a new job. According to the Labor Department, the number of people quitting their jobs is the highest it has been since 2001. In May, there were 6.64 million jobs advertised-when there were only 6.1 million unemployed people. You can be choosy about your job when you know that the odds of getting a better one are in your favor.

When it comes to the amount of Americans voluntarily leaving their jobs, Hamrick added, "The rising number of people opting to leave their jobs, as evidenced in the quits data, up more than 200K to 3.6 million, is an indication more Americans have been feeling confident about making a move".

The Labor Department data show there were fewer job openings in May than there were in April, but considering April's number of job openings was a record 6.84 million, the 6.64 million jobs available in May still indicates a strong economy, Bloomberg reported. Switching jobs is one way to reliably boost your pay.
