Over the last year, there’s been a fundamental shift in our priorities and the way we look at our career. With more companies laying people off, how can you insulate yourself from the rest of the work force and maintain your employment without becoming another statistic?
There have been millions of jobs lost this year alone. Our job market hasn’t experienced these staggering numbers since 1974. Employers have less tolerance for mediocrity and just doing enough to get by creates the opening for someone who’s hungrier (or more desperate) to take your position.
So, what can you do to avoid becoming part of this growing statistic? During this 7 minute news segment I did a few weeks ago, I’ve shared a few things you can do (as well as some things to avoid doing) to stay employed. It all starts by becoming more proactive and shifting away from the reactive posture many employees are taking.
Every job today has become more valuable. Are you at risk of losing yours? What can you do to prevent yourself from being the next one cut? Avoid being the next one laid off. These strategies can make the difference between you moving up the ladder of success or moving out the door.
