NYT: Look closely before leaping

This New York Times article “Look Closely Before Leaping From a Steady But Unfulfilling Job” didn’t deliver as much as its title promised. Still, I found a quote that resonates with one of the reasons I’m working on this blog:

“We have this myth that is still following us that you prepared for one career, you got a job in it and you stayed there for 30 years,” said Helen Harkness, founder of Career Design Associates, near Dallas. “We’re still dealing with that with midcareer people even though most know it’s a dead myth.”
