toon681With fiscal crisis looming and the weak-kneed politicians in “control” of how it gets resolved handled pushed off on future generations, who knows what’s going to happen with the U.S. and world economies. Some people apparently believe we can continue down this path (See the CNN Money article from Dec. 2012) and all will be well. Others are predicting a rough financial road for the near future (See the Wells Fargo Economic Report).

But the question for you and your family relates to your employment security. We all know–at least I hope we all know this by now–that true job security is a myth. However, there are things you can do actively to position you for security in an overall employment sense. And, no, I’m not talking about getting unending amounts of unemployment pay. We’ll chat about these topics:

1. What is employment security?

2. How do you prepare for employment security at home?

3. How do you position yourself at work?

4. What other things, outside of work, should you be doing?

Join the discussion and hear expert opinions this Wednesday 1/9 at 3pm ET on twitter at #TCFchat. You can start by posting comments here or on the Tech Career Forum LinkedIn Group page. Please feel free to share any experiences you may have had.
