Although it may be a new term, ‘rage-applying’ is becoming more and more frequent.

‘Rage-applying’ is the act of applying for new roles out of frustration with your current job.

New research shows 57% of white-collar professionals have rage-applied for a role this year.

The reasons for the rage are far-reaching, with a toxic workplace culture amounting to over half of applications.

Trailing behind were reasons like having an unmanageable workload and poor work-life balance.

The practice involves firing out multiple applications for new jobs on a whim after a bad day at work.

The study conducted by Walters People also suggests 41% have done so in the last six months.
