Overview

It's easy to get stuck with a job you hate. You might need it to pay the bills, or you might be afraid of risk. Maybe you just lost sight of your goals. The result? You are depressed, angry at your boss, or desperately wanting to quit.

Laurie Ruettimann understands what it's like to be stuck in your career. But after working in human resources at various jobs she hated, she took a risk and became an HR consultant and career coach. Now, Ruettimann is recognized as a top career adviser in the U.S.

By putting yourself first and taking control of your career, you can make your job more bearable and your life enjoyable. Quitting is not a solution to your career problems, but creating a better work-life balance, advocating for yourself, and challenging yourself are ways that you can begin to improve your work experience today.

"Nothing changes if you don't take that initial risk, bet on yourself, and put yourself first. You can't continue to blame other people if work is broken. Fix it for yourself."
