Are You UNDER-employed?

You may have heard of unemployment, but are you familiar with the term, underemployment?

“Underemployment is the condition in which people in a labor force are employed at less than full-time or regular jobs or at jobs inadequate with respect to their training or economic needs.” – Merriam-Webster

If you have a skillset or passion that is not being used to its full potential, you may be experiencing underemployment. Sure, a high school equivalency (HSE) credential can open doors to improve your circumstances. But have you stopped to consider the impact exploring your true passion and purpose could have on turning a job into a career?
