The 20 jobs people are least likely to leave

Conventional wisdom holds that people, especially millennials, are doing more job hopping than ever before — but that may not be true.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, an individual holds around 12 jobs during their lifetime, and that figure have not changed dramatically over the past several decades. In fact, in industries like tech and healthcare, workers can be incredibly loyal.
Job site Indeed analyzed millions of resumes posted by U.S. job seekers to find who was most likely and least likely to job hop. For their analysis, Indeed looked at career-switch search rates of the top 300 job titles held by individuals with at least a bachelor's degree.

Java developer topped the list as the job in which workers were the least likely to be looking for a career change, with just 8 percent searching for a new role.
Various nursing occupations dominate Indeed's list. Nurse practitioners, registered nurses and practical nurses were among some of the most loyal job titles. One reason so many nurses are dedicated to the profession? They've already invested significant amounts of time and money in becoming a nurse.
Overall, jobs in the tech and healthcare industries experience lower turnover, in part because of high growth and wages. Registered nursing jobs are expected to grow 15 percent between 2016 and 2026, guaranteeing current nurses professional stability. Furthermore, research from the Federal Reserve of St. Louis suggests that industries with higher wages experience higher worker retention rates.
