Let’s face it, losing a job is never a profession you want to take on. However, in today’s market, where the average employment tenure is 4.6 years, you will want to be somewhat prepared for a life-changing event, like job loss, at least once every 4-5 years.
When someone loses their job, they are forced into unfamiliar territory in a very abrupt manner. It is an event that can impact many areas of a person’s life. So it makes sense to be prepared for what should almost be expected in life, change.
Planning for Job Loss
Regardless of your situation, you should always plan ahead, when possible. Let me clarify that leaving the job prematurely is not always the type of planning I am referring to. Ultimately, life planning is not solely about the job you have. Planning and goal-setting for your life is about the end result – how you want your life to be. Common examples of a life goals would be to purchase a home for your family or to complete a graduate degree. In both examples, neither are directly tied to a job. However, the job is a tool to allow you to purchase a home, and on the other hand, the graduate degree may result in a better paying job.
