The COVID-19 pandemic has created two career revolutions.

First, there is the Great Resignation. This is occurring partly because some people feel their employers treated them poorly during the height of the pandemic.

Despite being forced sometimes to share workspace at home with their kids, workers feel that their employers — rightly or wrongly — were unsympathetic about their parental responsibilities.

Employees still remember the anxiety of searching for face masks or hand sanitizers to protect themselves and their children during the pandemic — all while trying to meet deadlines for work projects.

And let’s not get started with the shortage of toilet paper.

Tired of working the same routine nine to five grind and dealing with uncaring bosses, some people feel it’s time to move to greener pastures with another employer. And for the more adventurous ones, it’s time to start a business they always wanted but never had the courage or time to pursue.

And with more than 6 million COVID-19 deaths worldwide, some people are evaluating their current life choices. For example, is their work genuinely fulfilling? Or is it better to spend more time with family and friends?
