About our presentation topic:
The importance of planning for contingencies not only applies to Information Security, but to your career! Do you have a Career Contingency Plan? A Career Continuity Plan? A Career Strategic Plan? A Powerful Network?
Plan the steps you will take if you are ever affected by an event such as a layoff, corporate downsizing, a merger or even a decline in the demands of your current skill set. And whom can you turn to if it happens.
Whether it’s a short-term career plan that focuses on a time frame ranging from the coming year to the next few years, it is important for you to develop realistic goals and objectives that you can accomplish sooner rather than later.
Have you ever asked yourself: Where have I been? Where am I now? Where am I going? Am I building the right relationships? If not we need to talk!
Businesses, careers, and the workplace are rapidly changing, and the skills that you have or plan for today may not be in demand years from now. The need exists for you to develop a strategic career plan and a diverse network.
