Ride the wave. I would say that denotes the year of actions. With a 2019 projected downturn of economy, company restructure never ends, digital transformation transform people out of job. I think it is the right time to think about your work and life target and goals.
Job security to me is never a relevant term because whatever you do, be it contractor, permanent, or even CEO , you can get removed anytime. So talking about job security is meaningless.
Changes in the work community
2019 is a year to embrace the new economy, new ways of working. according to Gallop poll : 57 Million U.S. Workers Are Part Of The Gig Economy . I feel the motive of getting into the Gig economy should be 3 folds, again first of all it should not be job security ! 3 motive: first, enjoy a more flexible hours or way of life; second, can pick what you enjoy and feel fairly pay; third, you can work as hard, and as much you can or as little as you wish.
