Why You Should Keep One Foot Out the Door at Work
Even if you have a job that you love, it pays to always be looking. Meaning, there are some very good reasons why you need to have one foot out the door. This doesn't mean you shirk your responsibilities or are "disloyal" it simply means you take control of your own destiny. Lisa Gates of She Negotiates gives you five good reasons in this post.
An acquaintance of mine lost her job in 2008. Reeling from months of unemployment, she started volunteering at a no-kill animal shelter—something she had always wanted to do.
Within a short few months, she had built a facebook page for the shelter, set up an online donation tool, revamped their fundraising process, and day after day posted pictures and wrote stories of her personal rescues.
