ABSTRACT
The article outlines a six-step career management strategy. Concentrate one's efforts on projects seen to be as close to recession-proof as reality offers. Find a senior mentor to help decode the organization while it is going through tough times. Don not ask for a pay rise but demonstrate one's value, not cost. Negotiate a move away from a part of the firm that is seen as underperforming or peripheral. Do not stop networking both for industry knowledge and for insider tips.
