How To Avoid Being Outsourced Out Of A Job

leave a comment »

With the economy the way that it is, there is no avoiding getting outsourced. All companies are trying to reduce overhead and save money. The first way to do this is to cut salaries, cut positions, and get rid of jobs or have the jobs sent to a country where labor is cheap.

The only real way of countering this outsourcing problem is to make sure that you have skills or work in an industry or position where you cannot do the work in another location or country. If you’re thinking your job might be outsourced you need to keep all of your options open. If the company looks like they’re moving jobs away, they are. The first step is to NOT be in denial of this process.

When a corporation tells you they are moving to another country and downsizing, don’t believe that you are so special that they are going to keep you there. One day, they are simply going to come in and give you a 5 day notice. Corporations do this so that they keep you loyal and keep you in the job until they can gracefully move the job.

You must look for another job asap and don’t rest on your laurels. Too many Americans rest thinking that this will never happen to them. Many people on Wall Street felt this same way and my friends who work on Wall Street have been without a job or income for a year at times. You can’t rest. They will end the job. Be prepared by looking now or launching a business and really going hard on your business.
