2022 on LinkedIn

Seems to be a lot of job movement this year. And the associated selfies to go along with it.

Career Coaches

I don’t hear about these that often. We have coaches for many other things: music, sports, relationships, life, etc. Are our careers just something we can figure out on our own with those we associate with?
