Beyond Job specifications
Did you find your current role through the traditional application process?
This order taking approach to acquiring employment is indicative that your employer has options in terms of swapping you out. That is the very nature of general job specifications. If you are smart, once in you will have redefined the role so that it is uniquely defined by your personal capabilities.
If you haven’t done this, then brace yourself to be replaced by a younger and cheaper model.
The emerging theme is that talent will move beyond passive trawling for job vacancies and take a more proactive approach to creating employment opportunities. Target employers may not have been planning on taking you on, but when faced with your potential value they find a way to get you on the team.
