When Your Career Ends, What Will You Do Next?

This is something I've been thinking about for a while.

You know we all have a picture of ourselves, how we will work harder, get promotions faster, and eventually rise to the top of our respective corporate ladders, all in record time.

Well, things are changing. In fact, for some of us, our careers will be over way before we expect. Just ask the guys who got laid off from banks recently. Many of them will probably never get another bank job in their lifetime. Is it over for these guys?

So let me pose a question. If your career ends today (and I mean ends!), what would you do next?

For me, it's definitely a trading business! Energy, telecoms, technology. I will definitely go into buying and selling, and solutions. What about you guys?

Hi N.Landers, i believe being your own boss sorts out all issues concerning lay off and unforseen circumstances at work. God help us all so we get fixed in the right place.

Well, i guess because of what happen in the banking industry and the economic meltdown should teach us a lesson.

i need to acquire a skill that can make me stand on my own or makes me relevant to another industry.

Do you know that even the buying and selling have their challenges too.

From day one i should plan my exit so that if i'm told to go, i will be prepare for it.
