Changing Jobs

How I Quit


Whether looking for a job to pay the bills or taking the next step on your career, the search can feel like an endless day and night grind. We’ve all been there – written numerous cover letters, tweaked words on resumes, and gone to networking events where we know no one. The old adage is true, “it’s a full time job finding a full time job.”

But, it is also important to remember that part of the process should be fun. You should be focusing on learning about yourself, what you want to spend your 10,000 hours on, and how you can learn from your failings to make yourself a more attractive job seeker to employers. On top of all of that, sometimes it is just good to draw inspiration from other people’s successes and failures. After hours of job hunting, take a moment and enjoy these inspirational career tidbits.
