3 Things to Do To Feel Better In This Nutty Market

Are you waiting for the next round of layoffs? This market is uncertain and gut-churning.

I have clients and friends who are waiting for a January fiscal year close or bonuses to be paid out, or some other arbitrary date that will yield the “next round of layoff” announcement.

LinkedIn post writers and the media will have you thinking all this chaos is new and “never happened quite like this before”…

Here is the thing. It has happened like this before, and it’s not new.

But it may be new to them.

In this video, I have a 2012 screenshot about a client who was prepared for the re-orgs the video is about minute 6…)

In 2012, re-orgs were happening, like people eat lunch, daily.

This type of stuff has been happening for-eva.

When it first happened to me as a recruiter in 2000/2001…while I didn’t lose my job, I saw job openings disappear like the phone charging cords I bought when my kids were around.

I’ve been through three downturns since then. This video shared some things to do to feel better in this market.

Because we can’t wait for things to be good again before we feel better.

So don’t be surprised anymore.
Take back control.
Do things that make you feel good.
Be prepared.

What we do stands the test of time (as seen in that screenshot from 2012 and my 2019 client, who I recently chatted with and whom I mentioned in the video…)

Don’t wait anymore.
