Here is the summary, with some of my own thoughts
- Volunteer to Lead a Big Project
- Show Up Early, Leave Late
- Start a MicroISV
- Become a Popular Blogger, Author, Speaker, Podcaster, etc…
- Become a Trainer
- Write Technical Articles
- Work for a “Recession-Proof” Company
Another way is to take control important projects such that you become indispensable. Most of the time, 'important' means 'money making'
Make sure you look busy.
MicroISV refers to an one-person software house. Since that article is targeting programmers, the author is talking about starting one's own business that can generate recurring incomes.
Getting a part-time/contract job may not be practical most of the time. But in this economy, temp jobs will be aplenty because companies will refrain from hiring perms.
Increase one's popularity. Marketing is vital nowadays.
Becoming a trainer has double advantages: it is a good marketing tool for your prowess and also serves as respectable income source
Same as above
This idea may not be practical nowadays, as it is hard to tell which industry is 'recession-proof'...
