I'm 26 and I'm already on my fourth job. My dad is 60... and he's on his second. Clearly, we both fit the Boomer and Millennial stereotypes rather well. Thankfully, though, he's never judged me for "job hopping."
Instead, we've discussed our experiences and realized that he's as scared to quit his job as I am to stay at mine. No matter how old you are, deciding whether you should stick things out or move on isn't easy.
So, to help you organize your thoughts, we put together a "Should I quit my job?" quiz with the help of our career coach, Heather Coll (a member of the much less controversial Gen X).
These questions will help you figure out if it's time to move on - from your current role, company, or both. Because no matter what point you're at in your career, or which generation you're from, youdeserve to be happy at the place where you spend most of your waking hours!!!
How'd you do? If you're ready to start job hunting and need help putting your best foot forward, Heather can help you with everything from
crafting the perfect cover letter to nailing your interview. Or, if you're still not sure about your next steps, she can help you figure out how much longer you should stay where you are, and how to start looking for the perfect job once you decide to leave. Just don't feel like you have to decide by yourself, and don't let anyone judge you for your decisions - whether they're a cranky Baby Boomer, an entitled millennial, or part of some generation no one's even heard of anyway. You do you!

Networking The Right Way: Sample LinkedIn Message Templates
Before I wrote this blog post, I did a little research... and what I found shocked me. According to Payscale, "Some experts say that 70 percent of people ended up in their current position thanks to networking. Others say it's more like 80 percent or even 85 percent."
Ever wondered if remote work is for you? Working in your pajamas and answering calls from your bed might sound great in theory, but doing that every day of the week is actually just a recipe for depression and neck pain.
