What would you do if you were laid off tomorrow? Many of us don’t consider our career options until we are staring at a life-altering downsizing. In a recent Fast Company article, Stephanie Vozza, writes, “To avoid being blindsided, it’s important to have a backup plan that helps you navigate the waters if something happens outside of your control.” Her first piece of advice: build a strong network. Investing in your network before you need it and not being willing to utilize it are foundational for successfully weathering a sudden job change.
