In bygone eras, it was commonplace for individuals to remain in a single job position for extended periods, if not their entire careers. However, contemporary trends reveal that the average American now changes jobs between 3 to 7 times throughout their professional journey. This shift is motivated by diverse factors, including the pursuit of higher remuneration, escaping workplace challenges linked to differing values, leadership styles, and philosophies, among others. Another notable reason, particularly post-pandemic, is the increasing desire for enhanced workplace flexibility, as workers nationwide seek a healthier work-life balance.

If you find yourself feeling stuck in an unfulfilling job and uncertain about how to make a change, rest assured that you are not alone. The following section provides practical tips to guide you through the process of persevering through a job or career transition.
