CLEVELAND, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Author Sunny Lurie, Ph.D., acknowledges the importance of unemployment figures but asserts job unhappiness is the real culprit with nearly three of four workers dissatisfied. "It's an impediment to the economy and social contentment...Gallup reports 70%+ of American workers are dissatisfied in their jobs, making unemployment figures pale when considering the numbers of us stuck and mismatched in the wrong job!"
Lurie states unfulfilled workers encounter more struggles. "Work dissatisfaction lowers performance, increases sick days and hinders life quality... business suffers because uninspired workers are less productive."
Lurie insists "don't resist change--procrastination is perilous." Another hazard is not recognizing the new rules for securing jobs in today's changing marketplace. She underscores "job opportunities are presented and pursued differently from five years ago."
Dr. Lurie explains companies use innovative recruitment methods and if job seekers aren't current, they'll likely fall-through-the-cracks. "Age-old methods are less effective today, leading to difficulty gaining employment."
"I want to stand and shout, 'Stop force fitting yourself into the wrong career!"
Lurie underscores real career change, today, can be too complex to sort out alone. "Many people need assistance in taking control of their careers."
