The Illusion of a Permanent Job is a Unicorn
The illusion of having control of one’s professional and financial situation while being employed at a job has evaporated, and people are motivated to take ownership of their careers by exploring alternatives outside of the current career economy.
Our client number has nearly quadrupled in the last six weeks due to the dramatic shift in what was once the full employment mindset, and our coaches have heard the same sentence repeatedly when speaking with clients, “When all of this is over, I don’t want to go back to work for someone else again.”
What is interesting is that we’re finding that this sentiment stems from two different places – helplessness or indignation.
Some are obligated to continue working or risk losing their income. Others find themselves involuntarily out of work, and even if they’ve been promised the same position in a few weeks down the road, going back to work for an employer who may or may not be able to provide for them if another economic crisis happens has lost its luster.
For both of these examples, the illusion of having control of one’s
professional and financial portfolio while being employed at a job
has completely evaporated.
The mindset of clients has shifted. Previously, our Coaches may encourage clients to continue to focus on the job market while exploring other options, but that conversation has shifted based on our clients’ frustration at the entire collapse of the career economy.
