Almost 4 years ago I wrote this post talking about what you can do on your employer’s time, or while you have a job, for your career management.
I did nothing for myself because I was too engaged with my employer.
What a gross disservice. I’m not the only one who does this – hundreds of thousands of people who have been let go in the last few years have thought “but I was doing my job, and taking care of the company… why don’t they take care of me?”
Check out Are you cheating on your employer, which has a list of 10 things I should have been doing while I had a job.
