A job for life? (2)

Follow-up to A job for life? from Neighbourhood #1

In my first post, I worte about job uncertainty in today's environment and made one suggestion for improving prospects.

Suggestion number two:

Increase breadth of knowledge

As well as being skilled in a oneís own field, it helps to have an idea of whatís happening in other areas, i.e. investments, businesses and markets that are currently struggling, or hold significant potential. It isnít particularly productive to be on constant lookout for an exit strategy; that much is true. Still, consistent effort to acqnowledge ideas/events outside of one area leaves you open to valuable information and opportunities. Thus bypassing the mental filters that inevitably get put up when one has been in one place for a long time.
