  •  Culture of business has changed (0+ / 0-)

    Just had to mention that there is one additional problem.

    The culture of business over the past couple decades has changed greatly. It used to be you would spend ten of more years in a company moving up the ladder or across depending on the needs. But today we find that businesses  do not want that long term commitment due to higher pay. Or due to volatile markets the company gets bought out or downsized within only a few years of hire. Thus many employees are finding it harder and harder to stay employed for long periods. Thus you find yourself having to deal with bouts of being unemployed between jobs.
