The Myth of Job Security

Imagine being at your job 13 years and one day “Poof!”… Your job is gone.

You get called into your boss’s office and you are coldly told that you are being let go today.

Progressive growth, two promotions and many sacrificed weekends didn’t save your butt.

You’re out.

Just happened to a buddy of mine…

He has been with his company 13 years. He knows what I do for a living (obviously) and we talked about him being proactive with documents and nurturing with his network.

You know, build it before you need it – What I say aaaallll the time.

Well, you probably know where this is going, he didn’t build it before he needed it.

His documents are not proactively done.

He even had his LinkedIn profile hijacked by his company because of this ONE THING he failed to do (I’ll tell you what that is soon…)

And now he feels like a fool because:

  1. He has to write a resume for the first time in 13 years and he doesn’t gave access to his work email, performance reviews and P&L’s to reference while writing his documents.
  2. He may have to start his LinkedIn profile from scratch (if he can’t wrestle control back of the one he is locked out of).
  3. He needs to start networking, but now he is doing it with his hat in hand, instead of approaching the meetings curiously and on an equal playing field.

He is feeling like he is going to look like he is only reaching out because he needs something.

Well, he does, but it has to happen.

The Myth of Job Security struck again.

Knocked my buddy out from his knees.

Don’t let it happen to you.

Be proactive.

Be humble.

Be protective of EVERYTHING you have built…

… and attend my next online How to Create Your LinkedIn Profile to Land a 6-Figure Job Master Class on Tues. 3/23 or Thurs. 3/25 at 1:30 p.m. ET.
