In today’s world the concept of Job Security is slowly going down. Go and ask who has job security now. The only place where job security is available now is in Government sector, but Government and their officers are depending on private sector to deliver what they want. Because they themselves realized they cannot depend on government employees to deliver what they want.
And in Private Sector there is no concept called Job Security. If you are skillful and responsible you are on the job. But when there is a boom in the market, you can always blame the company that it is not good and go to other job. Otherwise if you have employability skills, generally private sector does not want to loose you.
In today’s world, employability means continuously acquiring new skills or the latest skills in your field so that your employer can use your existing or new skills to ensure you are resourceful to the organisation.
Thinking of job security in today’s world is like going from Bangalore to Singapore in a Bullock Cart.
Employability is the only job security for your and there is nothing called a company gives your job security. They can only use your employability skills to keep you on the job.
