I’m not suggesting that this is not an important part of the process, but with competition for jobs so tough these days, the chances that you’re going to simply apply on line and land that job are very slim.

How is it that so many people feel they are “stuck” in their current job?

Posted by:

The statistics are startling. A recent survey said that 87% of the American Workforce feels dissatisfied with their current their job. The main reason behind such an outrageously high number is the fact that most people have failed to do two things.
