Work in the “New Normal”

October 21st, 2008

Much is being written about the loss of job security of late.

Recently in a LinkedIn interchange, Jason Alba asked if we need to coin a new term. Here are my thoughts:
If we all realize that we are all, always in transition, then “job security” becomes an anachronism.

How about “work continuity” which involves staying professionally current, maintaining an abiding interest in your functional expertise, and engaging with others continually…helping, supporting, showing a real, ongoing professional commitment.

People who are able to shift with the changes in the marketplace are open to what is on the horizon, discover alternative ways to be employable or marketable, stay connected, and are resilient. They don’t hang on with resentment to what used to be, but are excited about the possible.
