According to Wikipedia – A “golden parachute“ typically describes an agreement between a company and an employee (usually upper executive) specifying that the employee will receive certain significant benefits if employment is terminated. These benefits may include severance pay, cash bonuses, stock options, or other benefits.
In other words, top executives ensure that they still get paid (rather significantly) even if they are let go. But what about you? Do you have that option? Do you have such a plan in place??
The Founder and CEO of Golden Parachutes, Monique Eddleton, believes everyone should have an escape plan (or several)! She is a career transition expert. Monique helps people who have the desire for another career but feel like they are stuck in their current jobs. She will take your dreams and passions (what you love to do), match them with your skills (what you are good at), and design a career that marries the best of both worlds.
So what about you? Are you feeling stuck? Bored? Dreading the next meeting or Monday morning?
Arrange a career brainstorming session today and let your life take flight! What are you waiting for?
