“The only constant in life is change” -Heraclitus
No matter where you are in a company, your career there is unpredictable.
Call to mind 10 different decision-makers at your place of work. Within that group of 10, I would venture to guess there are at least 50 different priorities all vying for attention as those leaders manage your company.
Hopefully a few of those priorities are related to issues of employee retention and sustainable growth. But the reality is that most of those priorities will be related to investor relations, profitability, and market trends. Even the most employee-friendly company has to think about long-term success, regardless of the impact that journey may have on you and your position.
Life is also unpredictable. Your own circumstances can change with a moment’s notice and your current position might no longer work for you and your family.
So where do these facts leave you?
Hopefully not in a state of panicked paranoia. We want these truths to leave you with the desire to be savvy and connected, so that you are agile and ready to move in the face of unpleasant changes.
So how do you stay connected and ready?
Know a recruiter. Staying engaged with the marketplace can feel like a part-time job, so get to know someone for whom it IS their job. Yes, networking and LinkedIn are great, but the market is a shifting landscape and you cannot know which company will be the best fit for you come tomorrow. Good recruiters understand the marketplace. Good recruiters want to know you so that they know where you would best connect and make a difference.
