"What's happening to our careers?"

The article I wrote for a variety of association executive publications throughout North America is getting quite a bit of attention; it examines how careers will evolve in the future as a result of the information explosion now occurring. Among the observations, the article notes that we wills witness :

  • a change in the very nature of professional skills
  • an increased need for “multi-skilling”
  • greater demand for “just in time skills”
  • a shift from tactical to strategic skills

The article also quotes an Australian report that suggests that “65% of the children who are in pre-school today will work in jobs and careers that have yet to be defined.”

It makes for compelling reading — find it hereadobe.gif The article ties into the career planning workshops I’ve been providing to organizations eager to grapple with the complexities of change in the workplace.
