We’ve Got About as Much Job Security as a “Game of Thrones” Character

This sure as heck is not your father’s economy or job market.

Gone are the days when a person could expect to start, stay and retire from the same company after 30 or more years of service.

You are likely to switch jobs any number of times as opportunities — and companies — ebb and flow.

A gold watch upon retiring? Forget it.

Today you’re lucky if a company gives you the time of day.

Further, as men of a certain age, we feel a certain vulnerability creeping up on us about how secure we are in our careers.

Technology, productivity and flexibility are all the rage — the buzzwords by which we live or die in our employment.

As Pedro and I discuss in this latest podcast of About Men Radio, men today enjoy about as much job security as a leading character on “Game of Thrones.”

We explore how we got to this point, how it affects us emotionally and in our relationships, and, naturally, we veer off into other topics, including snotty bathroom towels.

Just trust me on this. You’ll have to give it a listen. Which you should do.

Right now.

Go on!
