Happy New Year! As a brand-new year rolls around, it’s always a great time to reflect on your goals for the future. If a career change is on top of your list, then you’re not alone. A global poll uncovered some shocking news about the world’s one billion full-time workers: A massive 85% of people are unhappy in their jobs. We spend 40 hours a week at work, and it’s important to remember that no amount of pay or inconvenience is worth staying at a job you hate. Plus, hating your job can lead to many negative health consequences, such as weight gain, depression, anxiety, stress, and sleepless nights. So, if you’re looking for a career change in 2022, you’re in luck! At Open Colleges, we have the solution to your new year’s resolution.
