FROM PINK SLIP TO DEPOSIT SLIP
It’s been a rocky road for many Americans in recent months. Seems like I can’t turn on the
news without hearing about another large Chicago company (or the city itself!) doing
hundreds of layoffs. I could go “negative” and talk about how these activities basically
suck for the people losing their cars and homes, or I could look for the silver lining. I
gladly choose the latter.
According to Steve Zahorshy, (About.com),” Being unemployed in a volatile market offers
very few opportunities even for talented individuals. One growing alternative for the newly
quot;pink slippedquot; is to start a business.” Many opportunities, such as Consulting-don’t require
a huge initial outlay of cash to get started. I know from experience that it’s possible to get
up and running with monies from severance, unemployment and/or savings.
Chomp on this thought for a moment classmates. Our skills from studying HPT/T&D will
enable us to become the performance/efficiency experts across a broad spectrum of
organizations. From the small State Farm agency on the corner, to the big Fortune 500
client -I think that every 21st century firm needs the services that we are learning to
provide. What do you think?
