Mujeres Y Allies,
There’s nothing quite like being jolted out of sleep or interrupted in your day by an earthquake. Your LatinaVIDA family is all too familiar with the horror of feeling the ground moving beneath your feet and knowing it isn’t because you're being swept away by the love of your life or your latest crush! The big quakes that hit Southern California on July 4 and 5 were big reminders of the importance of having an emergency kit--not just for a natural disaster-- but for different parts of our lives, too. Have you set aside time to ask yourself those existential “what if” questions about your career? Do you have a backup plan ready to go? The big career challenges that can suddenly hit us by surprise fall into several arenas: Your employer shuts down or merges with another company. Your job or your spouse’s job moves to another unit to another part of the country. Your boss leaves--for a promotion or a scandal--and now you report to a new boss. These “career emergencies” are hard to predict but they happen.
This week’s #3LVCareerHacks is about being prepared for surprises that can hit your career any time and what to do to be ready.
Uno, dos, y tres. Let’s do this con ganas.
