6-steps to define your Unique Selling Proposition to Ensure Job Security

The last few years have been tough to navigate, especially when it comes to job security. From a global pandemic to the recent development in AI, job security has become a serious concern for today’s workforce with many positions being outsourced, cut, or revamped. In light of these developments, we organised a panel discussion that aims to talk about strategies around today’s volatile economy with Hana Souckova (Managing Director, SAP Czech), Zuzana Kosorinova (Employee Engagement Lead, IT Talent Enablement, MSD), and Jaroslav Gergic (Senior Director of Software Engineering, SentinelOne). The conversation concluded with the importance of finding your unique selling proposition (USP) as the key in job security in this volatile market. We’ve outlined six steps to help you define your strengths, stand out from competition, and stay relevant.
