JOB SECURITY IS OUT, FLEXIBLE JOBS ARE IN!

In his work life, the average worker will change career between 3 and 7 times: that is not counting the number of times he or she will change jobs within the same career trend.

This was supposed to be an easy laparoscopic surgery with a quick recovery. However, when I woke up in the recovery room, I could tell it had been a much bigger surgery than anticipated.
