The key is that these tactics help you develop a more holistic approach to your career, which can lead to skills that will help you in the long term. Ask yourself: What can you do to survive the next recession? How can you make yourself valuable to different employers? Have you taken steps to make yourself a thought leader in your field? Are you seen as someone who is innovative, always learning, and ready to take on new challenges?
You cannot afford to stay stagnant in your job or your field. You must become a lifelong learner, challenging yourself to learn new technology, get along better with others from diverse backgrounds, and be unafraid to showcase your talents through a blog or through social media. Continually invest in your professional development so that transferable skills – such as leadership and communication – are core competencies for today and 10 years from now.
