OVERVIEW

In today’s economic climate, many of us are faced with challenges affecting our careers. These can arise quite suddenly, either from restructuring initiatives, changes in strategic focus, a downturn in activity or essential cost reduction exercises.

For some of us, this may mean dis-establishment of our positions and the need to seek employment elsewhere. For others, we may need to re-apply for a position from a reduced number of vacancies, take on additional duties or move to a different role.

Whatever the circumstances, these are challenging times which we need to handle constructively and productively, both for ourselves and others who rely on us. We must be proactive in terms of developing strategies for managing the changes effectively, marketing ourselves to best advantage and handling the day- to-day pressures and stresses we all face in times of rapid change.
