Never before in the history of our industrialized workforce has searching for a job ever been so competitive. Corporations are changing and reinventing themselves at a breakneck pace, and new companies are continually bursting onto the national and international scene. Gone forever are the days of jobs that were “comfortable” and “safe.”
Like everyone else, executives now find themselves in an era of career instability, and they must be ready to pursue new opportunities with just a moment’s notice.
