But neither is remaining employed.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 29, 2008
Sadly, many in today's workplace environment equate "older worker" with "obsolescence" and "low productivity." Yet "older" can also mean "more experienced," "larger perspective" and "better judgment." You can't stop yourself from getting older, but there are many things you can do to fight the negative connotations of being "older" in today's workplace.
Attorney/Author/Workplace Expert Alan Sklover has just issued a new http://www.SkloverWorkingWisdom.com newsletter in which he shares the 8 ways to maintain your critical "perceived value" in your workplace, and for keeping yourself employed and employable as long as you want to work:
1. Keep Yourself "Tech-Savvy"
2. Stay Close to People and Projects that Produce Revenue
3. Involve Yourself in Long-Term Projects and Programs
4. Build and Maintain Your Company and Industry Relations
5. Play Your Strongest Card -- Experience
6. Look Beyond the Horizon; Surf the "Next Big Wave'
7. Be a "Reputation Enhancer" for Your Company
8. Be Vigilant about Your Physical Appearance
"Learning how to navigate for yourself at work is not mandatory," says Alan Sklover, "But neither is remaining employed." These are the specific steps you can take to keep yourself employed and employable and they are neither costly nor difficult, and surely worth the effort.
