At my first job in ‘the real world,’ one of my biggest complaints was the lack of recognition I received for my hard work. I didn’t have this “entitlement attitude” that people speak of these days – I didn’t feel my company owed me anything, in fact.
I’ve come across a few articles in the news lately about people taking a “leap of faith” when it comes to their job.
In some cases, people realize their current occupations just aren’t doin’ it for them anymore. Or sometimes, these folks have had an underlying passion for something unrelated to their current job, but for whatever reason – fear, lack of resources or whatever -they haven’t acted on it.
After 4 years of working in the same city, it was time for a change. So, I packed up and moved – but not without looking for a job first. While I didn’t find one that was willing to pay for my move to the new job, one-third of employers say they have paid to relocate an employee from another area to their company’s location in the last two years, according to a new study from CareerBuilder.com and Apartments.com.
