There are no more jobs, only assignments!
Today jobs do not last a lifetime. Whether you are lucky enough to have a new job last ten years, or only a few months, you will be moving on. If a job carries the potential for growth and promotion, as well as mutual commitment, there are no more jobs only assignments. Much like in the Hollywood movie industry, professionals are engaged for an assignment. Over time, some are more trusted by particular people. Being well known and respected is critical as you will sooner or later be needing that reputation. Assume always that you will need to use your network and eperience to find a new one.
