How job morphing works
Job morphing is a way of changing your job by building on where you are now and strategically adding to it. There are basically two ways this kind of morphing can happen:
1. When you take your so-so job and, through patience and your own efforts, find a way to vastly improve it. Kind of like magic or alchemy, you work to change your job into something totally different and better for you.
2. When you take your so-so job and use it as a springboard for an entirely new career. For example, Rob Burnett started his television career as a page (intern) for David Letterman in 1985, later became the head writer for the show in 1992, and then the show’s producer.
