    Being forever employable is being able to work until I get ready to say its quits, not when society thinks I should. And being able to get a job at any age.

    Being forever employable to me means spanning the bridge between consistently having solid core business skills and being malleable to new ways of delivering those skills and learning new skills. Forever Employable by Jeff Gothelf provides the bridge to help you achieve that outcome.

    The first and foremost thought coming when it comes to being forever employable is not being worried
    # of the next pay cheque
    # of getting fired in a jiffy after putting 10 long years in the same company
    # of taking care of the investments at the end of every year
    # of sending money to mom once in awhile to take care of her treatment
    # to go dine out for anniversary and birthdays
    # to help out a relative or stranger who is in desperate need of money
    # to get expensive gifts to wifey on special occasions
    # to take a paid review of CV and reshaping it instead of only the free services
    # to take a paid one to one session on Skype for improving the career trajectory
    Etc., Etc.,

    Individuals who have a positive attitude no matter what and who go with the flow are those most likely to be forever employable! Stand out for your positive attitude, but don’t stand out too much.

  5. Raimon

    To be forever employable means that you don’t have to work. You work because it’s part of your life and it’s something meaningful to you.
    So if you don’t feel like you’re forever employable, just stop, look around and find whatever it makes you feel that you’re not working anymore.

  6. Sara

    Since any new hire is a gamble, when a boss sees s/he made the right hiring decision, that is step to becoming forever employable. When the employee channels his/her own drive for success and results to those of the company, it’s a win-win situation for both employee and employer. So the employee becomes forever employable.

    When companies have to make decisions about downsizing and layoffs, they will retain the “forever employable” staff that are pleasant to be around and contribute to the office environment and culture. So one should focus on being emotionally intelligent, being a true team player, and “leaving your ego at the door”.

    Be employeable means that you can deliver value to any company with your background, with skills, with willingness to learn and the most mportant with growthmindset. The pandemic has given me the opportunity to better my skills and I am ready to asume new challenges, for example, entrepreneur my own edtech Startup and create more opportunities for people.
    1000 thanks for this opportunity, God bless you😉👍🚀

    After reading it, I want to note that It’s well done, easy to read, and gives a lot of practical advice. Particularly if you are thinking of launching your own business, this book will give you the necessary push.

    I enjoyed reading it and would definitely recommend it.

      Good to hear, Sara. I would hate to promote a book that was terrible! Thanks for the review.
