From Pink Slip To Deposit Slip

  1. 1. 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?
