As many as 60 percent of all employees will freely admit they wish they had another job. Few people are happy with their lots in life and yet many of them do not know how to fix the problem. They do not know how to start searching for the perfect job or how to put themselves in the position they always dreamed of. There are many steps involved in quitting and finding a new job.
