Job stability, a recession-proof career, and overall security – all are goals for professionals, but all are outside of our individual control. I recommend making yourself professionally agile by diversifying your skill set to include core skills for a variety of professions and/or fields. The more employable you can make yourself, the better chances you stand of weathering any major shakeups to your current career field, as well as heightens your chances of landing on your feet in a new field should you decide to make a change.
First, keep in mind the ways you can broaden your skill set. Preferably, choose the options are available to you at little to no cost. Consider shadowing other positions on your current job in order to familiarize yourself with responsibilities outside of your current position. As you acquire new skills, add them to your resume to make yourself stand out as a unique candidate.
Also, be sure to take advantage of any additional training that your employer will contribute towards either in part or in full. Many professions have ongoing trainings and webinars that professionals can attend virtually or in-person to receive information about developments in a field, or training on new best practices. Take advantage of those, as many of them double as networking opportunities.
Next, consider certifications as a method to enhance and diversify your skill set. I am a big fan of certs simply because they are more affordable ways to add emphases to your resume based on your career interests, giving you the option to drill down in certain areas to pinpoint your expertise. These are especially popular in technical fields such as information technology and software development.
