  • I DISAGREE WITH THE STATISCAL SURVEY OF CAREER PROFESSIONALS HAVING NEARLY 20 JOBS. THIS CAN NOT POSSIBLY BE FOR THOSE BORN BETWEEN 1915-1982 WHICH RANGES LARGELY IN MY FAMILY. WE ARE DRIVEN, EDUCATED, FOCUSED, CONFIDENT AND SECURE IN THE DECISIONS THAT WE HAVE MADE IN OUR PROFESSIONAL LIVES. I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT COLLECTIVELY WE HAVE HAD 20 JOBS? THIS DOES NOT DEFLECT THE SMALL PERCENTAGE WHO MAY HAVE HAD TO MAKE INCREDIBLE CHOICES BEYOND THEIR CONTROL TO SURVIVE. THESE CHOICES COULD BE PERSONAL, PROFESSIONALLY,FINANCIAL, LOCATION OF STATE THEY RESIDE IN, JOB AVAILABILITY, ETC.....
