The Myth of Job Security (One)

This morning, I saw on CNN that Olympus, the camera makers, have announced a 5 year growth plan that includes cutting 2,700 jobs. Only a few weeks ago, HP cut 27,000 jobs. Look around Lagos today, and you see lots of eBanking outlets - with GTBank a clear market leader in this regard. With an increasing number of ATMs that dispense cash and accept deposits, more jobs are set to go in the Nigerian banking industry.

One of the many truths that have hit me in the past few months is that job security as our parents knew it, is a myth.

In today's world, there is no such guarantee for the average worker.
