Are you prepared for the unexpected?
At my career habit we’ve worked with hundreds of professionals. A common challenge is being unprepared to bounce back from career shocks- they don’t have career resilience.

A career shock can appear in a number of different ways:
- organisational restructure,
- new managers,
- new technologies and
- industry disruptors.
These events may be out of your control, but their impact on your career doesn’t need to be.
Career resilience is something that you can build up over time so that you can adapt and recover quickly.
Overcome a false sense of security.
Large supermarket chains have a tactic of making their suppliers dependent on them – it is called cliffing. A supplier is made dependent on the supermarket’s business so that they have to supply them at a low margin and the supermarket can maximise their profit.
Have you allowed yourself to become cliffed by your company?
It’s not uncommon. When it happens career strategy, big-picture thinking and a focus on professional development are some of the first things to be put on the back-burner. This opens you up to risks.
But here’s a hot tip: you don’t need to be dependent on your organisation. By developing career resilience, you are putting yourself back in control of your career.
