So there you are — you’ve been with the same company for years, so long that you can hardly remember doing anything else. And you’ve been happy in your job, focussed on doing the task at hand, not really thinking about what might come next. But then it changes. Your job is no more. After all that time, you’re back on the market, back to the résumé refining, application sending, and suit and tie auditions.
Some people think you need to reinvent the wheel to prove yourself and land a job. To do something so startlingly original and mind blowing that people will be falling over themselves to hire you. Not so. The good news is, someone else already invented the wheel and it works just fine. And plenty of companies are happy with their ‘wheels’ just the way they are.
