Pivoting After a Job Loss
In today’s workforce, it’s normal to skip around from job-to-job a great deal, either because you quit or are fired — six jobs before people are 30, by one estimate.

Fear and shaky self-confidence are the root of what holds women back from taking a chance in a new direction,” Sachs tells The New York Post. In this piece, Sachs lists seven ways to move forward after losing a job.
