DDFD at Self Reliance Workshop posts a few thoughts on employment:
After two years of unemployment I’m starting to consider both posts more seriously. In this new era of change we may all need to become expert at reinventing ourselves. Certainly we would probably be wise to consider every job as temporary and always be maintaining our personal networks, keeping our eyes open for new opportunities, keeping our resumes current, etc.
I hope this is not always the case, and perhaps the pendulum will swing back the other direction again some day, but for now, regular job turnover seems to be the norm.
