Uncertain About My Future
by: Anonymous

It is incredibly unsettling when you know there is the likelihood of redundancies in your company or organisation and you just don't know when it will happen and whether you will be the next victim. You just feel helpless, waiting for the axe to fall.
Well, there is no perfect solution here, but a lot depends on whether you are actually looking to escape from the job anyway or would like to stay put if the job could be secured.

If you like the job, the best tactic is to keep positive and look for ways that you can prove your worth on the job. Make sure your anxiety does not demotivate you so that your performance deteriorates. If you continue to be a valuable employee you may be able to reduce the risk to your job.

If you don't like the job, then (if you have some savings to tide you over) you can pre-empt the redundancy and resign, rather than waiting passively for it to happen. If you think the redundancy would be worthwhile financially, then wait to see what kind of deal you can get.

Either way, start planning now to put your career change into action. It puts you back in the driving seat, taking control of your life.
