Episode 113 – Putting All of Your Eggs in One Basket
One of the most common idioms in the English language is, “Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket.” When discussing our partnership agreement with military officers, this phrase comes up quite often.
We tackled the topic of our partnership during a recent in-depth podcast episode. However, we thought it would be helpful to address this specific phrase as it relates to crafting a successful transition strategy.
So what do officers mean when they say, “I’m not sure about putting my eggs in one basket?” Typically, the idiom encourages eliminating risk when possible (i.e. investing in a diverse financial portfolio or diversifying your skillset). Officers want to eliminate risk in their transition.
How do you eliminate risk? As a military recruiting firm that’s been in business for over 50 years, we have a few ideas.
- Prepare, prepare, prepare.
- Seek out expert advice.
- Diversify your strategies (i.e. career fields, industries, locations, etc.).
During this podcast, we touch on this idiom and how it relates (or doesn’t) to our partnership agreement, how to ensure your transition strategy includes a diverse group of opportunities, and how you can bubble wrap your proverbial “eggs”.
Again, our agreement isn’t going to be the right FIT for everyone. And that’s OK! But if you’re looking for a true career search, meaning 10-12 interviews across a variety of industries, then you might want to put your eggs in the Cameron-Brooks basket.
