Job Search Now or Wait Until January?

job search now or wait until January SWOT analysis

Job Search Now or Wait Until January?

An employed product manager reached out to me saying their job was in jeopardy.

He asked me if he should start his job search now or wait and see if his job was actually going to be eliminated.

I asked him, “If you saw the product line you’re responsible for was going to possibly lose a major distributor... would you wait and see if it actually happened, or would you proactively be seeking out other distribution channels?”

He knew the answer to the product line question.

He saw where I was going with the answer to his “should I job search now or wait” question...

Our career trajectory is simply a business situation that needs a plan.

If it’s growing, we need a growth plan.

If it’s in jeopardy, we need a contingency plan.

It’s a SWOT analysis of ourselves: what are my strengths and weaknesses? What are my opportunities in my career and threats to my career?

We do this type of planning and analysis for our employers every day.

Why don’t we do it for ourselves?

Why do we not think it’s worth an investment of a consultant to help us with our growth or contingency plan?

I mean, our employers hire consultants all the time... it’s an industry, for God’s sake: Deloitte, Accenture, Bain, McKinsey, CapGemini, etc...

But we don’t invest in outside advice for ourselves... you know what’s worse?

We think we know better for ourselves and try to move forth on our own without help …

...bad plan.
