During your career, you will change jobs, the company will change direction, you’ll get new managers and many times you will feel these changes are out of your control. Learning how to adapt in an ever-changing environment will help you thrive.
When you stay current with how companies fill jobs, you’re more likely to land a new job faster.
And we even saw our country’s leadership change this week. There have been many campaign promises made, some you may or may not agree with. Some he may or may not be able to achieve. Each of us has an opportunity and obligation to educate ourselves on the facts of the new policies and laws the President-elect plans on implementing. Stay informed.
Just like your career, it is easy to dismiss our personal responsibility to manage the things we can manage and stay up-to-date. Keep your head out of the sand. Take accountability and advocate for yourself and the things you believe in.
