Many professionals in the workforce at some point in their career reach a crossroads where they must weigh their options and determine if they will remain at a company or quit and move on. According to the Department of Labor's March 2011 "Job Openings and Labor Turnover" report, 1.9 million workers chose the latter and left their jobs amid the recession.  Yet another report, by BlessingWhite, a global consulting firm, notes that the number of North American employees determined to leave their positions has nearly doubled since 2008, from 7% to 13%. Blackenterprise.com spoke with Joey Price, human resources specialist and founder of career services firm, Push Consultant Group L.L.C., on seven signs that quitting and moving on may be your best option. —Souleo
