    This 34-year-old increased her salary by $194,000 after quitting jobs 6 times: Top 7 negotiation tips

    Long before the Great Resignation drove record numbers of American workers to quit their jobs in the wake of the pandemic, quitting had been a key part of my career growth and wealth-building strategy.   I started my first full-time job in 2010, at age 22.

    ‘Jobs of the now’: The top 10 jobs of the future have arrived early

    Which jobs will top the post-pandemic jobs list and which roles are likely to emerge as top contenders in the post-COVID future? From Work-from-Home Facilitator to Fitness Commitment Counsellor and Algorithm Bias Auditor to Cyber Calamity Forecaster, the future of jobs is already upon us. As some countries begin to pull out of pandemic-induced lockdown, and the corporate engines of “return to the office” begin to whir, an open question hangs: What kind of jobs will people return to following months of work-from-home exile in “Remotopia”?
