You’re Fired!

Always Nurture Your Network!My friend is a contract recruiter here in Denver. She was on assignment for an International Engineering firm who was gearing up for a major project. Her phone rang a short time ago and she was told:

As of today, you’re fired! We’ve decided not to move forward with this project. Nothing personal, your work was exceptional!

A little shocking, you betcha! I think more companies are starting to worry about the financial cliff and are going in the freeze mold! Two major take a ways :

  • Always have money set aside for the rainy day-in our case today in Denver, a snowy day.
  • Always nurture your network and have a plan B

My friend has both of these covered, but still kinda shocked!!

How important do you think it is to nurture your network-even in good times?
