If there is one thing that you should have learned from the most recession by now is that it is not enough to be doing a good job.
You have to always be thinking of career planning and preservation.
After all, the person who gets ahead isn’t always the smartest or work the hardest (although those are great qualities to have).
People get ahead by being alert and prepared:
Alert to opportunities within their organization
Alert to opportunities outside their firm
Prepared for the change that is inevitable in their careers just as in life.
That’s why I suggested that you start the year by making several job search resolutions or goals for yourself in order to minimize some of your career risks you face.
