In this study by Simply Hired and mentioned in Inc., 33% of 2012 college graduates say their top priority when looking for a job is job security. In our current job market, I wonder if they’ll be able to find a job that offers any sort of security.
Governments are laying off employees by the thousands and declaring bankruptcy. The average length of a job in the US is about two years. Gone are the days of retiring with a gold watch and a nice pension. Yet the #1 thing grads are looking for is security.
“Security lies in our ability to produce.”
- Douglas MacArthur
Do we all need to start a business? Not necessarily. If our security is found in producing, then let’s produce. Would a company lay off its top sales person? Sure, it could happen, but it’s unlikely.
I hope these college grads know how to produce. Whether in sales, leadership, or operations. If you can get things done, you’ll find security.
