The economy is showing signs of life, and that means millions of people who have been stuck in jobs they hate will start looking for work. A 2011 survey indicated that 84 percent of Americans planned to look for a new job when the economy improved. And yet, the reality is that only a small percentage of them will be successful in changing careers. In a recent article I wrote for AOL Jobs, I explain the obstacles people must face when changing careers in 2012, and how they can deal with them.
