People on the East Coast Hate Their Jobs (Well, at Least More Than West Coasters)

People on the East Coast Hate Their Jobs (Well, at Least More Than West Coasters)

Ever wonder if anyone's paying attention to your tweets—especially if you ever use social media to complain about work?

Career site Monster and social intelligence company BrandWatch analyzed more than 1.1 million job-related tweets[1] between March 2014 and March 2015.

Here are some of the fun things they discovered over the course of the year:

· People hate their jobs the most in July. Maybe it's because the weather's all warmed up and folks would rather spend time outdoors—or maybe it's just a mid-year slump.
· People especially hate their jobs over the weekend. No surprise, really, since the anticipation of heading back to a 9-5 office job on Monday is usually pretty grim. In fact, Monster notes that 20 percent of all job searches on their site occur on Mondays.
· People who work on the weekends don't hate their jobs. Interesting tidbit:

What is surprising, however, is that conversations about loving one's job don't completely halt—giving insight into a group of professions—retail and restaurant workers, contractors, police officers, doctors and nurses, and more—who work every day of the week. It appears that workers in these areas love their jobs, regardless of the weekend hours.
· East coasters have fewer good days than west coasters. The study reports that: "8 out of the top 10 states with a higher ratio of discussion about 'loving their job' vs. 'hating their job' are in the Western half of the country (with the exception of Arkansas and Maine). Every single state with the lowest ratio of love vs. hate tweets is in the Eastern half of the U.S., with approximately half in the Northeast region."
· Maybe that has something to do with industry? In the western part of the United States, the highest paid jobs are in "construction, education, information technology, and tourism." In the miserable Northeast, the highest paid industries are "finance, healthcare, legal, business activities, and retail."

Womp-womp, huh?

The good news, though, is that, at the end of the day, when all the numbers are crunched, social media shows that overall people "love" their jobs more than they "hate" their jobs. In the last year, the study found that all in all, "there were over 201,000 mentions of the phrase 'hate my job' and over 942,000 of 'love my job.'"

Which camp do you fall into?
