According to the Macmillan Dictionary, “Job Security” is the knowledge that your job is permanent as long as you want it to be. We all know, in all honesty, that there is nothing consistent or permanent in life therefore, you might find this definition misleading. We do agree to the last part of the definition; it gives the employee the power over their destiny, the power to make it happen as long as they have a will to have it that way.Change is part of the life cycle, caterpillars go through changes and most definitely human too. But just as the caterpillar goes through changes we must appreciate the process. It’s not always easy to change from one job or career line to the next, but in a world economic structure that is unpredictable and companies are down seizing every now and again, we must be ready for the inevitable.As an employee that just scored your dream position, it is common that you sit at your cubicle and blame the unstable economy or inefficient institutions for failing to guard us against any abrupt changes. But the truth is that you, just like everyone else, have to take charge and make your career your job and not rely entirely on the companies where we are placed.You have to give up the idea that your boss or an institution knows you better than you do. Companies fall asleep and forget to listen to the market demand. We have seen instances where people lose their jobs because an employer wants to hit his numbers at the end of the quarter. There are too many variables that could affect stability in your career. Again, you have to take charge!Changing Jobs is the scariest thing but could save you a great deal in an unstable environment.Trust the process and let go of what you are used to. If you are used to the traditional bureaucratic institutions that attract people who do the same thing over and over again, then you are more likely to threaten your Job security. By changing jobs, you give yourself an opportunity to learn new skills, increase your network and most importantly, an opportunity to grow.It is not easy but with the right strategy in place and attitude, the sky is the limit.Picking out the main points in the market and paying special attention to these details could help you transition easily whether it is financial analytics or communication, take a pick. Just keep focused on the bigger picture of your career objective and from a caterpillar you could turn into a butterfly amidst the trying times. All the best and go ahead and make it happen.
