Surname 1 Name Course Instructor Date Love It or Leave It, Hiring Right and Beat the Overqualified Article 1 The article title “Love It and Leave It” is a paradox that many people could struggle to justify conventionally. In normal circumstances, people do not leave what they love. Instead, many of us tend to seek more from what we find appealing. But this is not the case in many organizations and companies because despite most employees being happy and engaged, they are willing to leave if a lucrative opportunity presents itself. Many employees, even the senior ones that constitute 68% of the workforce in the US, are ready to leave for greener pastures despite their contentment with the current employers’ terms in many aspects like health, career, pay, and retirement plans.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
