The aim of this study is to define the difference of a job/carrier change consciousness between young IT engineers and middle-aged ones. As a verification method, a questionnaire analysis was conducted for engineers of graduated employments. As a result, in order to decrease young engineers’ negative job/carrier change consciousness, it is necessary to make them recognize the value and rewarding for their work. It also became clear that a positive feedback from their boss has an influence on young people recognizing their job as a calling. On the other hand, this theory does not apply to middle-aged career. It has turned out that they tend to have lower consciousness toward job/carrier change if they can have opportunity of career development possibilities shown by management side and it is enhanced by their business skill.
