  2. 2. 1<br />.<br />WHAT IS <br />“EMPLOYER MONOGAMY”<br />AND WHY IS IT PASSE?<br />
  3. 3. WHAT IS “EMPLOYER MONOGAMY” AND <br /> WHY IS IT PASSE?<br />Definition:Employer Monogamy is staying with a single employer for decades or longer<br /><ul><li> Most people today will not stay with a single employer (or even career) for life, and will likely have to shift as the economy and technology continues to evolve
  4. 4. The average duration an employee stays with a single employer these days has dropped considerably. The norm now is not so much to “climb the company ladder,” as they used to say, but to stay ready for a series of moves over the years to a variety of employers</li></li></ul><li>2<br />.<br />THE BENEFITS<br />OF<br />EMPLOYER VARIETY<br />
  5. 5. 2. THE BENEFITS OF EMPLOYER VARIETY<br /><ul><li> You get to experience more than a couple of work environments
  6. 6. You’re exposed to a wide range of people
  7. 7. You don’t need to feel so stuck in your current role, because hiring managers elsewhere are far more willing to look at resumes that show multiple employers over a reasonable number of years (if you aren’t hopping from job to job in a way that looks erratic)
  8. 8. At each of the places you work you’ll pick up new skills and learn the art of being flexible and responsive to change. Therefore when you’re faced with a possible job search due to shifts in your current place of employment, you are more likely to approach the transition ready to spring into action</li></li></ul><li>3<br />.<br />KEEPING YOURSELF<br />READY FOR<br />CHANGING EMPLOYERS<br />

  11. 11. Sign up for Job Alerts that suit you on Monster.ca
  12. 12. Speak to recruiting and personnel agencies from time to time</li></li></ul><li>3.3 HAVE YOUR PARACHUTE PACKED IN ADVANCE<br /><ul><li>Update your resume every three to six months so it’s current
  13. 13. Retain relevant samples of your work (so long as they aren’t confidential)
