My Family is Counting on My Dead End Job

Dear Experts, What do you do when you're at a dead end job and can't quit? I can't switch jobs because I have a family counting on my earnings. Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#432 Follow "dual path": keep OK job 2 pay rent/mortgage, etc. & continue 2 move toward ur "right fit" work. (@juliaerickson) Q#432 Why can't you quit?!? Find another job and GO if you hate it. Nobody has a gun to your head. (@beneubanks) Q#432 Sure you can switch! - treat finding job as 2nd job: solicit pro career help, if needed. Be proactive/confident. (@ValueIntoWords) Q#432 Get your resume together and start looking now - while you are presently employed! (@DebraWheatman) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
