Have the itch to switch jobs?

I was 36 when I realized I was in the wrong profession. As an Account Supervisor at a large, global advertising agency, I had succeeded. I was at the top of my game — but longed to do something else. I had officially gotten “the itch to switch.” I learned that I loved speaking to […]
