I was just talking with a client about her job search. She worked for her company for about eight years, and everything seemed to be going perfectly. She had been promoted once, and her reviews were good.
And then the axe fell: She got called into the conference room and told her position was being eliminated. Profits were down. Business just wasn’t as good anymore.
For a week or so, she was in shock. She has a teenaged daughter. What would happen to them?
Fortunately, she contacted me, and we are working on her plan. But I offer this story as a cautionary tale. In today’s climate, you never know when you will find yourself unemployed. You may have great credentials and you may even have helped the company earn money. But you can’t take that job for granted.
This is why you must always be prepared so that you if you lose your job, you can hit the ground running.
Here is a checklist you can implement immediately:
