How To Search For A Job While You Are Currently Employed

People change jobs for a number of reasons and this is okay. We are allowed to do what it takes to grow our careers if it serves a greater good and makes us find fulfillment. Gone are the days when you had to work a job that made you feel miserable or didn’t align with your purpose or passion, whatever that means to you!

Many experts believe that job seekers who are currently employed are more desirable candidates. But then you also hear people say: “if you hate a job, quit!”
