A new study shows those Millennials you're training plan to take their skills elsewhere.

A new study by LinkedIn surveyed more than 13,000 Millennial job seekers to find out what it takes to get them to work for you, and offers some insights into the lengths some employers are going to need to go to hire the best talent from this generation.

Perhaps the fact their underemployment rate is still hanging at 26 percent plus (and comes with lower salary earnings, too) is making Millennials rethink what matters in a job.

Here are just a few statistics the survey revealed:

  • 93 percent of Millennials are eager to learn about new job opportunities. That means just 7 percent of them are fully satisfied in their current role. 
  • 30 percent of working Millennials say they plan to leave their current job within a year.
Translation: Your smiling Millennial work force isn't as happy as you think.
