Regardless of how much you strategize or plan ahead, you are always at risk of being out of work.
Here are just a few examples …
- Advancement in technology changes the market (i.e. RIM/BlackBerry, Blockbuster, or Kodak).
- A significant player dominates the market and forces out the small guy (i.e. Walmart and the family-owned business).
- A market crash forces a downsizing (i.e. government bailouts of the automotive industry, big banks and the housing bubble, technology companies and the dot-com bubble).
It doesn’t matter if your current boss loves the work that you do – if there’s a change in the market or a reorg at the top – your job is at risk!
However, hope is not lost.
If you lose your job due to a factor outside of your control, there is a way to guarantee that you will not be out of work for long.
