The world as we have known it for many decades, regarding employment opportunities, has fundamentally changed.
The shift we are discussing involves business, employment and careers. Very little of today’s business world resembles the market of a decade ago.The old established idea of being educated in a specific field; looking for a job in a large company; gaining promotion; job security; increased salary and benefits, has markedly altered.
It’s hard to imagine what has actually happened, especially if you are on that ladder and you were brought up in this linear way of career thinking. Certainly, college graduates are facing this new reality in no uncertain manner. People of all ages have to face this change and in many cases it is a frightening wake-up call.
Many industries, jobs and skills have vanished and new skill requirements have replaced them. Old ways of job hunting, resume presentation, job searches and networking have substantially altered – the old ways are no longer viable. New skill sets and new approaches must be adopted and a new attitude to these changes must be accepted.
Is the New World Career Order the norm for the mature person or for any person?
